Thank you for visiting Parkland Primary school’s website. We hope you find all the information you are looking for; this is the place where you can gain an insight into all the things that happen at our wonderful school. It is with both pleasure and pride that I write to you as the new Headteacher at Parkland and to have the opportunity to build on what we already do well as a school.
Parkland Primary is a large school in South Wigston positioned on the Leicester City/Leicestershire border. We are an academy and enjoy the benefits of being part of Discovery Schools Academy Trust. We work collaboratively with other schools, sharing practice and resources. We are a growing school with 3 classes in each year group and our own pre-school which opened in 2015. It is our aim to give all our pupils the very best start in life.
Our school vision is to provide every child with an outstanding education and high aspirations for their future. At Parkland Primary we are incredibly passionate about our pupils and believe that every child should have the opportunity to succeed. The children are always at the heart of every decision we make, we have high expectations of them. We pride ourselves on providing a high-quality education and in our strong pastoral support. We aim to instil values in our pupils that provide them with the skills they need to be successful in life.
We are lucky to have a highly dedicated and enthusiastic team of staff who want our pupils to achieve their very best. Our curriculum provides our pupils with a broad range of opportunities and experiences that are relevant to their needs now and for their future. We want to foster a passion for learning that will last a lifetime.
We believe that education is a partnership between home and school and we value your input and support. We enjoy working with the community and have many links to support our families. We are proud of our learning environment and our extensive grounds, but don’t just take my word for it, arrange to come and see our amazing school for yourself.
