“Everyone unique: caring, sharing, learning together.”
At Parkland, we are committed to every child achieving success in a happy, safe and stimulating environment. We endeavour to provide rich experiences for our children, encourage high standards of achievement and attainment in all aspects of school life, promote professional expertise among our staff and, not least, provide a welcoming and caring atmosphere throughout the school.
We believe that children should learn to care about others as well as themselves. Therefore, we try to foster not only a love of learning and knowledge, but also a regard for truth, fairness and compassion.
We believe that the success of our school depends on the contribution of each and every member of our school community. We are always looking to improve and develop through a continuous cycle of self-evaluation.
