Click here to read all about our knife amnesty initiative in the Sheffield Star! 

This week has been a really busy week for staff, students and volunteers in terms of our ongoing project to raise educational awareness about the dangers of Knife crime.

All students have participated in the academy’s drive to ensure all are safe in school and we have used the security arches to great success.  We have had workshops with small cohorts of more vulnerable students with the Fearless Gang themselves.

I am delighted to say that, whilst items were confiscated, none were illegal or threatening in any way and this appears to demonstrate the success of this initiative. The most common items confiscated were energy drinks which are banned in the academy, and the most unusual was a can of dairy squirty cream- what more can I say?

Parkwood Academy recently hosted the first ever E-ACT Regional Pupil Celebration Awards ceremony! 

Students from Parkwood and partner school Pathways Academy were recognised for their outstanding artistic efforts and remarkable charitable pursuits at the celebration event.

Congratulations to all of our competition finalists!
