Parkland Primary school is a large primary school, with 506 children aged 4 to 11. It is also a pretty happy place with children who on the whole are willing to learn, friendly and easy-going. Our intake is mixed in socio-economic terms with nearly a quarter of the children on free meals. Parents are supportive regular volunteer helpers in school.
Staff range from very experienced to NQTs, with a generous allocation of support staff including HLTAs, a nursery nurse, teaching assistants and an ICT technician.
Premises are modern with open-plan areas for younger children and closed rooms for older ones. We have good resources and excellent facilities including an ICT suite, field, studio, resource room, and separate Year 6 building. We share a campus with South Wigston High School. A state-of-the-art sports centre has been built at the High School with community access and timetabled slots for our school's use.
Our school is part of the Discovery Schools Academies Trust. Discovery Schools Academy Trust is dedicated to improving learning and teaching by creating a culture that promotes excellence. The needs of all children are placed at the heart of all decision making regardless of the school they attend. Teaching and learning excellence is shared through learning networks, sharing of ideas and materials as well as leading practitioners between schools. Discovery has developed a school improvement system which focuses on improving outcomes for all children. It also places staff development, talent management and succession planning at the heart of achieving outstanding organisations.
