Celebrating our Business Links

At Parklands we are proud to work with businesses from around the world. We work closely with businesses to organise world of work days for the children, set up volunteer reading programmes in school, and run volunteer days where staff come into school and give their time to work on projects such as painting murals, tidying the gardens and redecorating the classrooms. In 2017 we won the TES Business Collaboration Award and are very proud of the work we do to encourage our children to have aspirations in the world of work and also to make links with their local communities.

We are extremely grateful for the ongoing financial support we have received from businesses in the form of grants, sponsorship or donations of Christmas presents, furniture or resources etc.

If your organisation would like to work with us on a project, please make contact with us via our office email address:  office@parklandsleeds.org.uk
