Admissions for reception class, September 2017!
Parklands Educate Together Primary are offering 60 reception class places in September 2017. 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 with the design of the spine road the new school building will be completed for September 2018. We are working closely with North Somerset Council to find a temporary solution for the school so will keep all families informed as plans are confirmed. 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 2017.
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 2017. 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: www.lockingparklands.co.uk
The new school will be the second academy operated by the Trust. The first is the new school in Redfield, Bristol, which opened in temporary accommodation in September 2014 and has recently moved into its permanent building on Avonvale Road. It currently accommodates 120 children and will grow to its full capacity of 420 children in the next five years.
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.”
