Joining our School

We are extremely proud of our school, and welcome new families. Whether you’re considering our school for Nursery (aged 3), Reception or wish to join us in another year group, we recommend a visit. We can offer 1:1 tours of the school which will give you a great insight into life at Parklands Community Primary & Nursery School. During this time you will see our engaging, high quality classrooms, our fabulous Smile Studio and Butterfly Room, and the playground facilities. You will also get a chance to meet the staff, talk about school life and ask any questions to our head teacher, Mrs Cairns. If you come during the school day, you will see calm, purposeful lessons and our incredible children who make us proud every day. Please phone or email to book a tour.

We provide excellent before and after school care which is the best value in town! For further information, click here.

Headteacher’s Welcome

At Parklands we see the potential in every child and are proud of all of our children. Education changes lives and we have high expectations for all our pupils. Our team work hard to deliver opportunities for children to exceed their own expectations and believe in themselves in a way that they might never have thought possible.

We seek to ensure this through a broad education focused on academic success, excellence in terms of care and welfare, and ensuring their talents and achievements are recognised. When children leave our school, we want them to be excited about the opportunities that exist for them and have the confidence and skills vital for success in life. We seek to create responsible, resilient and curious citizens. Each half-term we focus on one of our school values: independence, cooperation, respect, responsibility, resilience & ambition. Our ethos promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance for those with different beliefs.

We want our children to be the best they can be and have three clear school rules to be: Ready, Respectful and Safe. We provide a caring and safe environment for your child and safeguarding is paramount. The school’s governing board, SENCo and learning mentors are very supportive.

New to Parklands?

Choosing the right school for your child is crucial. We firmly believe that Parklands offers an excellent education and we always welcome visits from prospective parents, so that we can share with you our passion for learning and our commitment to our children and their families.

You will find members of staff approachable and appointments can be made easily should you wish to see a teacher for longer than a moment or two at the beginning or end of a day.

I am very proud to be the headteacher of Parklands Community Primary School and love my job. I look forward to working with you in partnership.

Mrs Kim Cairns

Headteacher
