Welcome to Year 3!

Welcome to Year 3 and welcome back to Parley First School after such a long time! We would also like to extend an extra special welcome to our new families that have joined Parley First School this academic year.  Things are looking a little different around school, and Year 3 are part of their own ‘Bubble’, as we ensure that adults and children are as safe as possible, following government guidance in relation to COVID-19.

We are pleased to report that the children have come back happy and quickly adapted to the new ways of operating such as one-way systems and extra hand washing. We are already very proud of them!
