September 2013: Mr Andy Taylor the new Headteacher, joined the school at the beginning of the month and is busy settling into his new role, getting to know students, staff and local community. A blog from the Head will appear in the near future.
December 2013: As we approach the end of our first term together, we have seen a lot of progress for students, staff and the wider community, all of whom contribute to the high aspirations we now have for Parkside School and its future.
As always the school continues its fantastic charity work, raising significant sums of money for a wide variety of causes. Parents' Evenings, Open Evenings and a Primary School Harvest Festival have been hosted by us. Numerous educational visits, including trips to Berlin and Poland have impacted significantly on both the academic and social education of our students.
The school has also made significant steps on its continuing journey towards giving students the education they deserve and need in order to fulfil their aspirations and ambitions. A Bradford Partnership Review led by a HM Inspector reported very positively on the changes in school since the last Ofsted Inspection and recognised how the school is now moving forward on the journey to being judged a good school. This is in no small part due to the continuing support, attitudes and moral values we all hold as a community and the way we are working together for the common goal of Parkside School success.
May I take this opportunity to thank all members of the school community for their support of the school, the students and the staff. I continue to be excited and enthusiastic about what the future holds for us all. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all happy and relaxing Christmas break.
