The Autumn Term is really getting underway now, as it gets cooler outside. Please see the Latest News page to find out about what has been happening in school – and out! Featured at the moment are photographs of our whole-school well-being day, and Eagle class’ sporting opportunities.

It has been a great pleasure to welcome all our new families to Park Street; the 17 new children in Owl Class are really settled in now. Please make yourselves known to them and welcome them to our school. The PTA organised their amazing bake-off last month, which was so well supported by you all – thank you! They are now planning the Christmas Fair (Friday 2nd December), and discos for the children, which will take place in December. Please offer to help if you can!

Keep checking the key dates list, on a link on the right here, and please remember our new starting and finish times. Teaching starts at 8.45am every day, so please don’t be late!

After School Clubs

Please continue to contact Kinnerz and KPA to sign up for clubs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays – details are in the attached link below. Kinnerz are hoping to have a later finish time from September, of 5pm.  KPA will now welcome children from the age of 5 to 11. We also have a new provider of after-school care: following a successful trial in July,  KidsRus will be running after school provision at Park Street on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, from September 26th. Please sign up by emailing office@kidsrusoosc.com.  Coding (for KS2) continues on Fridays. Please contact the office to book this or if you require a place for your child at ‘Before School Club’. All the details can be found by clicking on this link to open the pdf document.

The ‘Latest News‘ page of  the website will continue to be updated at least every fortnight this term, as this has now replaced our newsletter. It is easy for you to find out about the children’s learning, as well as notices and information to keep you ‘up-to-date’, all in one place!  If you haven’t already, please take a look to see the photographs of activities taking place, and examples of the children’s work. You can view the website on a phone too, which is easier to check for updates. If you have any concerns or questions, please email office@parkstreet.cambs.sch.uk. This will be monitored most days for the rest of the holiday.

Best wishes,

Sarah Hawker
Headteacher

Welcome!

A warm welcome to Park Street Church of England Primary School in the heart of Cambridge.

Park Street is a uniquely wonderful place for children to learn! With only 120 pupils, relationships are at the heart of the school, where every member of staff knows all our children and families well. Everybody feels part of our small ‘family’!

Personalised learning becomes possible and successful when children’s individual learning needs and interests are known well by their teachers. Children thrive through our encouraging, creative and ambitious approach, where the individuality and contribution of all is highly valued. The highly invested staff team are committed to seeing them grow to fulfil their potential, and develop a lifelong love of learning. For our global population of pupils, we provide a flexible, responsive curriculum, led by enthusiastic teachers attuned to satisfying children’s curiosity and inquiring minds. This approach has been validated by our children’s excellent results in their statutory assessments this year (2022), which can be found here (please click the link).

Our values are:

Honesty and Respect, Friendship and Kindness, Learning and Fun.

These are underpinned by our Christian Vision as a Church of England School, with strong links to the University Church of Great St Mary’s.

Whether you are new to the school, considering joining us, or have been a part of our community for years, we would love to share more of the life of Park Street with you here on our Latest School News section.
