Welcome to Parkdale Primary School Moving Forward, Learning Together

School Council

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils.

It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part
of the whole school community.

Some of the things we have achieved in the recent past include:

  • introduction of a Prayer Room for our Muslim pupils
  • helping design the new school dinner menu 
  • getting the prize for the winning house made more exciting (a cinema trip)
  • choosing and buying lots of new play equipment
  • sorting problems with rotas, like table tennis and football
  • starting Friendship Stop on the playground for children who might not have anyone to play with
  • getting a pond and wildlife area
  • changing the rules on PE kit so you can wear your house colour

Our focus for this term is on making our school more environmentally friendly. We are trying to reduce our impact on the environment by using less power, less plastic and creating less waste.

Our mission from this month is to get at least one new tree planted on our grounds!


December 2019

We are working with or new school dinner caterers to feed back on their menus and to try to get them to use less plastic.
