Parks is a National Support School!

The National College for Teaching and School Leadership has designated our Head Teacher, Mrs Evans, as a National Leader of Education and Parks Primary School as a National Support School. As a National Support School, we will make a difference to the educational experience of more children. In addition to running our own outstanding school, we will work in schools that are facing challenging circumstances in order to support their staff in raising standards.

Times Tables Rock Stars

Thank you to all our parents who came along to learn about how you can support your child in learning their times tables and becoming rock stars!

Well done at Whestone Year 3/4!

Mrs Evans received this lovely email praising our year 3/4 children on a visit at Whestone Pastures:

Hi Caz,

Trust this finds you well. This afternoon I was at Whetstone Pastures and in conversation with the owner found that Parks had visited earlier today. The lady at Whetstone was so impressed , I think you'll get a letter from her . However I thought I'd drop you an email in case it doesn't materialise . She talked about the children's creativity and their behaviour - all excellent. It was lovely for me to interact knowing what goes on at Parks. You continue to do a fabulous job. My best wishes Nicky Well done Year 3/4 !

Footballers take part in King Power Tournament

Mr Pyatt's King Power Football Report:

The football team qualified for finals day at the King Power stadium.

The team got to walk down the tunnel, sit in the dugouts, meet Filbert the Fox and play on the pitch.

After a slow start losing 1-0, the team battled hard and passed the ball well in their next 3 league games winning all 3 games, 1-0. All 3 goals coming from Jesse Humby with some sublime free kicks. Radfar turned on the heroics in goal to deny the opposition on many occasions.

The team qualified from their league in 2nd position to reach the semi-finals. In a well contested game, the team narrowly lost 1-0 to Humberstone.

They were cheered on by a crowd of 500+ including their classmates who clapped and sang all morning.

The team all performed above and beyond in a thrilling tournament.

 Well done footballers!
