Welcome to Parkdale Primary School Moving Forward, Learning Together

Shine a Light Award

Many congratulations to our Early Years Team, who have won a prestigious Shine a Light Award for their work in Communication and Language.


This national award, Primary School of the Year, is organised by the Communication Trust and was awarded to us based on our screening and intervention programmes, including the employment of a Speech and Language Therapist. which lead to amazing progress for pupils in Reception. 


You can see the video about the winners here, on Youtube: 


Mrs Foxall (Early Years Lead) and Holly Godley (Speech & Language Therapist) travelled to London to the awards ceremony, where singer Gareth Gates did the honours.


We have since held a celebration in school, which was attended by representatives of Notts County Council and Gedling Borough Council. 


After Easter, our local MP, Vernon Coaker, will be coming along for a further celebration with us.
