Welcome to Park.
Dear Parents and Carers,
Thanks for showing interest in Park Community School. We are a forward thinking state-funded Free Primary School. We welcomed children for the first time in September 2014 and we now have four classes of up to thirty children from Reception to Year Three. I am thrilled to be leading the school at this exciting time in its journey. I enjoy the opportunity to work with aspirational and highly effective teachers, wonderful, curious and creative children and supportive and engaged parents and carers.
New parents to the school always comment on the calm and happy atmosphere for learning within the school. The children are proud of their school and their achievements and all children conduct themselves with impeccable manners and they show kindness to others and respect to all. The core school vales of Love, Grace and Fellowship thread through the very heart of the school and a great deal of emphasis is placed on the key life skills of kindness and respect which serves the children now and for the rest of their lives.
We follow the core national curriculum, with a key focus on visual literacy units, where children are more inspired and excited to write. Children will study key authors such a Jacqueline Wilson and Roald Dahl as well as explore non-fiction writing drawing on key events in history such as The Great Fire of London. We now follow the Mathematics Mastery programme in Years Reception and Year One. This programme follows the Singaporean approach to mathematics which is a method with proven success. We value trips to enhance children’s experiences, so children will attend many exciting places like the Florence Nightingale museum or the London Zoo.
Park Community School is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all its pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. The school takes seriously its responsibility to protect and safeguard its pupils. Ours is an ‘open school’; this means that anyone who has worries about another pupil in the school should speak to the Headteacher or a member of staff about their concern.
Children are given the opportunity to build links with the local community and the children work in House groups weekly in Community Time to decide how they can further enhance and connect with the people around use. We also work with children on developing ‘mindful’ skills to support them to understand how they can best manage their feelings in the most effective way.
I strongly recommend that you pay a visit to the school as visitors are always impressed by the quality of the work the children are producing, the happy learning atmosphere and the tidy and organised learning environment. You may choose to attend the Friday Celebration Assembly at 8:45. This is a fun end to the week where we all enjoy sharing and celebrating children who have achieved a personal goal or target, or perhaps they have been an extra loving and caring friend to others.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
