A very warm welcome to our school website to all of you who are already part of our school family, and to those of you visiting our site for the first time!
We hope that you find the information that you need, and that it reflects some of the really fantastic things that we do here at South Parade Primary.
It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the Headteacher at South Parade Primary School.
In my role as Headteacher, I ensure that all children are given the best chance to reach their full potential and to also ensure that they have the skills at the end of their time at South Parade to leave fully prepared for the next stage of their education. Here at South Parade we have the community, lifelong learning, spiritual, moral and cultural including British Values and eco-learning as our key drivers; we plan our curriculum to ensure that these aspects underpin the teaching and learning that we do. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom.
Although our school is quite large (there are 446 on roll including Nursery) we are a warm, supportive and friendly school, something we are very proud of. In fact, the biggest strength of our school is the relationships that are fostered here – it is what makes coming here each day such an enjoyable experience. SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) principles underpin all the work and play that goes on in school.
We have high expectations in terms of behaviour, personal and academic progress and enjoyment from all of us – our Staff and Governors, our Parents and, of course, our children.
If you would like any information about our school please feel free to contact us.
