CHILDREN at one of Skipton’s primary schools started the new academic year last month not only in new clothes, but in a new uniform with a logo inspired by an inspiring parable about a mustard seed.

Skipton Parish Church Primary School, in Brougham Street, now has a green uniform for its children complete with a school logo, resembling a mustard flower.

The logo - the result of school consultation - uses the parable of the mustard seed, the smallest of seeds which grows into the strongest of plants.

Headteacher, Lucy Peberdy, said: “The church, parents, pupils and staff were all involved in the design of the new uniform and it represents a new beginning for Parish Church School.”

The school is getting back on track after being graded inadequate in all areas by Ofsted earlier this year.

All children are wearing the new uniform, but with those in key stage two given the option of wearing the tie.

Meanwhile, Parish Church School is holding an open day on Wednesday, October 16 for potential new comers. The school will be open between 9.30am and 2.30pm, and there is no need to make an appointment, just turn up.
