Admissions for reception class, September 2018!

Parklands Educate Together Primary are offering 60 reception class places in September 2018. Applications need to be submitted through the North Somerset Council coordinated admissions scheme. To complete your application please visit the council schools website.

Due to complications the new school building will be completed for September 2019. We are working closely with North Somerset Council to create a suitable temporary solution and hope to locate the school on the field next to the Radio Wing for one academic year. Residents are invited to join us at The Radio Wing on the 22nd November at 7.30pm for a chance to see the plans, during the planning process. 

In the unlikely event that a temporary solution can not be found North Somerset Council will contact all applicants to select another school preference in place of Parklands Educate Together: this will not adversely affect your child's application for other schools. 

If over subscribed the school will operate the following admissions criteria, detailed in our Admissions Policy.

Parklands Educate Together Primary for September 2018.

Educate Together Academy Trust to sponsor new primary school at Locking Parklands, North Somerset. 

Educate Together Academy Trust is delighted to announce that it has been appointed sponsor of the new primary school which is being built for the residents of Locking Parklands in North Somerset.

This new academy will cater for two forms of entry (420 children) and include pre-school provision. It is scheduled to open in September 2018. The decision to award the sponsorship was communicated by Sir David Carter, Regional Schools Commissioner for the South West.

The Academy will be a state funded school established under the current government’s “Free School Presumption”. It will be open to all children in Locking Parklands.

In common with all Educate Together schools, it will be run on the basis of a legal commitment to “equality of access and esteem to children irrespective of their social, cultural or religious background.” It will be co- educational and committed to countering role stereotyping in the learning environment. It will be child-centred in its approach to curriculum and will be democratically-run acknowledging the important role of parents and families whilst positively affirming the professional role of teachers.

Locking Parklands is an exciting new housing development to the southeast of Weston-super-Mare, close to the village of Locking.The housing development aims to provide up to 1,400 houses in a friendly parkland setting. Details of the development are available at:

The new school will be the third academy operated by the Trust. The first, Redfield Educate Together Primary, Bristol opened its doors in 2014 in a temporary location, to move into its new home in 2015. The second, Somerdale Educate Together Primary, Keynsham opened its doors to pupils this September in a new building. Also opening in September 2018 is Mulberry Park Educate Together, Bath.

Paul Rowe, the Trust’s CEO, welcomed the RSC announcement. He stated “ The Educate Together Academy Trust is delighted to be awarded the sponsorship of this exciting new school development. We look forward to engaging with parents, residents, developers and the Local Authority in the planning for this school. We are sure we can deliver an excellent modern learning environment for children and ensure that the school fits in with the special characteristics of this development.”
