Covid-19 Statement:

Swale Academies Trust is following all Department for Education (DfE) and Public Health England (PHE) advice throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

All Trust schools have undertaken rigorous risk assessment processes in close consultation with staff, Trust leaders, governing bodies, and union representatives.  Our comprehensive assessments are regularly reviewed and updated as guidance changes.

All schools have put in place a number of protective measures, based on the available guidance, to manage the identified risks and protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our children, staff and families.  These measures are underpinned by the DfE guidance and are primarily based on the five essential measures of:

  • a requirement that people who are ill stay at home
  • robust hand and respiratory hygiene
  • enhanced cleaning arrangements
  • active engagement with NHS Test and Trace
  • formal consideration of how to reduce contacts and maximise distancing between those in school wherever possible and minimise potential for contamination so far as is reasonably practicable

If you wish to discuss the risk assessment approach or specific protective measures in place, please contact the school office for further information.


It is a privilege to welcome you to our website. Parkland Infant School is at a very exciting stage in its development and it is with great zest that we continue our quest to deliver an outstanding education where we hope to ignite imaginations and inspire our learners. We have also been working very hard to improve the school environment.

In December 2015, Ofsted rated us as a ‘good’ school with high standards, high expectations and warm, positive support for our learners.

The results achieved by our pupils in July 2015 bear testament to the hard work of our learners, teachers and parents. Our reading, writing and maths results were all above last year’s national averages. I would like to congratulate all of the children, staff and parents for their hard work and very much look forward to building on this during 2015-2016.

A central theme of our work this year will continue to be high expectations in everything that we do. Insisting on the highest standards of uniform and behaviour has a very direct link to pupils' achievement, attitude to learning and future life chances.

I very much look forward to working with you to ensure a school where pupils make rapid progress, develop a lifelong love of learning and have inspiring experiences that will ensure they remember their time with us for many years to come.

Best wishes,

Ms S Simpson

Head of School
