Netball Match – Staff vs Children
On Thursday 28th March, there was a staff vs children netball match organised by Mrs Walker. Children from KS1 and KS2 gathered on the bottom playground at 2:30pm where the fun began! Both staff and children were highly skilled in attacking and defending and Mrs Walker was an excellent referee! The children who were watching acted as cheer leaders for both sides, but in the end the score was 8 – 0 in favour of the staff!!
Police Dogs Assembly
We were delighted to welcome Greater Manchester Police Force into school on Tuesday 19th March 2019. They provided a wonderful insight into how police dogs are trained as part of law enforcement. This was a wonderful opportunity to build upon and enrich the children’s curricular learning. The police officers and their faithful companions: Blue and Rodney who are drugs, firearms, cash and ammunition detection dogs and Krank and Gromit who are general purpose Police Dogs, conducted an assembly that the children found highly informative and entertaining!
A display followed on the playing fields demonstrating how Krank and Gromit would apprehend and detain people who were up to no good!
Many thanks to Mr Kay, our Site Supervisor, for his support and hard work in organising this event.

The children in KS2 have been attending Mindfulness Club at lunch times on a Monday. They have enjoyed activities such as meditation, yoga, guided imagery, colouring and origami. They have discussed dealing with anxiety and created ‘positive thought boxes’ as a strategy for coping with life’s difficulties.
World Book Day 2019
The children at Park View took part in a costume parade, where they displayed their wonderful World Book Day outfits on the catwalk.
Lest We Forget
On Friday 9th November 2018 at 11am the children and staff at Park View Primary School held a ceremony in memory of the fallen soldiers of Prestwich during WW1. The children made poppies to commemorate each of the soldiers who lost their lives by planting a poppy inscribed with their name. The poppies were planted in the school field and all the children and staff observed a silence for 2 minutes.
Mrs Yardley, our Office Manager, played a wonderful rendition of the Last Post on the flute and Mrs McClean, Assistant Head Teacher, read three stanzas from the poem ‘For The Fallen’ by Laurence Binyon. This was a very moving ceremony and children returned to their classes in silence as a mark of respect.
We were extremely honoured to welcome Mr Delbridge-Smith, Assistant Director, Education and Inclusion, to our ceremony.
Mr Stephens, Head Teacher said “It is essential that the younger generation remember the sacrifice given by so many and learn lessons from the past to ensure a better future”
