Nine out of ten children are taking packed lunches to school which contain too much saturated fat, salt and sugar. To help parents give their children varied and balanced lunchboxes, the Foods Standards Agency has put together some practical tips and suggestions.

Reading is the key to discovering knowledge, not just at school but throughout a child's lifetime. Reading as a leisure pursuit is also a pleasure, which is why we work hard at making the children at Parkland confident and competent readers. Every child reads at school for the first half an hour of every day and we also ask parents to read with their child at least three times a week. Here are some tips for listening to your child read.
We have several volunteer parents who come into school to listen to individual readers. We are very grateful for their help and would like to encourage more people to give a little time in this valuable way. Grandmas and Grandpas are also very welcome. If you are interested please contact the office or speak to your child's teacher.
