Headteacher Welcome: Steve Davis
Welcome to Parklands Educate Together Primary Academy. The school will be opening in September 2018 for Reception pupils on a temporary site next to the location of the permanent school building. This will open in September 2019. My name is Steve Davis and I am proud to be the school’s first headteacher. I look forward to putting Parklands ET Primary at the heart of the community and providing a great learning environment for all its pupils and the wider community. I have a long career in education which includes working at five different schools and being a headteacher in two North Somerset schools. I am excited by the unique opportunity to establish a new school. The school is part of the Educate Together Academy Trust which has a long history of providing high quality education for the communities it serves.
Educate Together schools follow a unique ethical curriculum. The key principles which underpin this will enable us to create a learning environment that nurtures children and help them to develop the skills, understanding and attitudes which they will need to thrive in our increasingly diverse and globalised world. Parklands will be an equality based school where no child is an outsider and we learn together to live together. Every child and member of our school community will be valued and respected equally: we seek to develop the whole child, to foster their unique individuality and to enable children to take ownership of their own learning.
Educate Together affirms that:
1) Children of all social, cultural and religious backgrounds have a right to an education that respects their individual identity whilst exploring the different values and traditions of the world in which they live.
2) Parents are entitled to participate actively in decisions that affect the education of their children.
and commits itself to:
3) Support the establishment of schools which are,
Equality based i.e. all children having equal rights of access to the school, and children of all social, cultural and religious backgrounds being equally respected,
Co-educational and committed to encouraging all children to explore their full range of abilities and opportunities,
Learner-centred in their approach to education,
Democratically run with active participation by parents in the daily life of the school, whilst positively affirming the professional role of the teachers.
