Head Teachers' Message


Dear Parents and Carers

I am delighted to be able to write my first letter as the new Head Teacher at Parkway Primary School. All the children, staff and parents I have met so far have made me feel very welcome and I feel privileged to be joining your school community. I am very keen to get to know parents, as well as the pupils and staff.

From my experience of being a teacher/Deputy/Head Teacher for 22 years, I know that a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together. Since my appointment, I have had the opportunity to visit the school on several occasions and to meet Mr. McBride, pupils and staff. I would like to say  thank you to Mr. McBride for his leadership and support in ensuring the transition to a new Head Teacher was as smooth as possible.

My priority as Head Teacher is to ensure that Parkway Primary School continues to aim to become an outstanding school. I am looking forward to finding out more about the school so that the changes we make in this new chapter of the school’s history are supported by the whole community.  This is to ensure we are able to meet the needs of all our pupils to achieve their full potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development.

Our school has developed a set of core values which will continue to underpin all the work we do. These values will have a huge impact as your child develops. They help to deepen your child’s positive values and in doing so, help them consider the implications of their choices in relation to themselves, the communities from which they are part, and the wider world.

Parents make an important contribution to children’s achievement at school, and I want to develop the relationship between the school and parents for everyone’s benefit.

I look forward to meeting many of you over the next term after class assemblies or in the morning when you drop your children off for school. These meetings will provide an opportunity to meet you and discuss the building of a successful partnership. If you prefer, you are also welcome to contact me by email, through This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

I would like to thank you personally for your continued commitment and support towards the staff and pupils of our school.

Yours faithfully,

Mr RJ Celino-Stock

Head Teacher.
