Lockdown Hero Award
In 2021, our whole school staff were recognised for their efforts as Lockdown Heroes by the Pearsons National Teaching Awards. Every member of staff all pulled together to ensure pupils remained engaged, families were supported and the disruption to our children's education was minimised from the day we went into national lockdown. We hope that all families felt well-supported through these tough times and continue to feel supported in our recovery period.

As part of our whole school approach to promoting positive Health and Wellbeing, we have various interventions to support our pupils. One of our ,ost successful groups is the Wee Worry Workshop that Mrs McNeil leads. This has been so successfully over so many years and many pupils have benefitted from this. it was recognised at local and national level with many colleagues coming to see what it involves and learning from our good practice.

In October 2017, Park View was awarded their first Green Flag from Eco Schools in recognition of our efforts to make Park View an 'Eco- friendly' school. Mrs. Morley and the Eco Committees (past and present) had worked towards achieving this since the school opened in August 2013.
In September 2019 we were awarded a second Green Flag. This was due to the continued hard work of Mrs Morley, the ECO committee and all staff and pupils. We continue to maintain these high standards and during COP 26 we took part in the local campaign to clear rubbish from around the local community.
Mrs Sidebotham plays a huge role in our eco-friendly school by helping the children grow fruit and veg and take part in a wide variety of eco-promoting competitions to embed this practice into their everyday lives.
