Hello to all Park Street parents and friends!
Welcome back to Park Street for a new academic year. A very warm welcome to all the families who are joining us for the first time. We are an open and friendly community so please make yourselves known to other parents who I am sure will be happy to make your acquaintance. Several families will be joining us from overseas, including from as far away as South Korea and Japan!
The staff will be in school for two days of training, on 1st and 2nd September, with the children returning on Friday 3rd September. Children in the Reception year will have been given their start dates for the week beginning Monday September 13th. Reception parents, please don’t forget to come to the ‘Stay and Play’ sessions on the morning of Tuesday 7th (9.30-10.30 am) and the afternoon of Thursday 9th (1.30-2.30pm)!
Please contact Kinnerz and KPA to sign up for clubs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays – details are below. Other club details have yet to be finalised – information will be sent in the first full week of term, with clubs starting the week beginning 13th September. Please email the office (at present) if you require a place for your child at ‘Before School Club’.
Our ‘Latest News‘ page will continue to be updated 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 the Summer activities that took place in July. You can view the website on a phone too, which is easier to check for updates.
I am really looking forward to seeing you all very soon, and of course, meeting some of you for the first time!

Park Street School Parents' Survey Results
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.
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.
During the pandemic, because of our size, it has been possible to successfully maintain our community, keeping in touch with everybody and helping all children to continue learning through ‘live’ teaching sessions as well as with online resources.
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.
