What is Behaviour and Safety at Parkland Infant School?

Parkland Infant School is a school which seeks to develop confident, independent, caring and enquiring individuals who are prepared to take a risk but fully understand how to keep themselves and those around them safe from harm. We will provide excellent learning opportunities for children to develop and celebrate exemplary behaviour and a thorough understanding of safety.
