Children arriving after 9.00am will be marked late. Adults bringing children into school after this time will need to come to the office and sign the late register. A school representative will then take the child to their classroom.

Our School Visitors

All visitors must report to the office. Entry to school is by the main entrance only. Visitors will be asked to sign the visitors book if remaining on site, and sign out when leaving.

Our School Uniform

Grey trousers/grey skirts with a white shirt/polo shirt are our preferred uniform. Our sweatshirt/cardigan/fleece is maroon with an embroidered school logo.

During the warmer weather many children will change to grey shorts/red and white check or striped dress.

Our children need to be provided with plimsolls for when in school and an apron for art/craft activities.

Those items of uniform which incorporate our Park Wood logo are only obtainable via Park Wood Schools Association. A uniform shop is held on a monthly basis on the school site. Hats, book bags and water bottles can also be purchased from the uniform shop. More details of the Park Wood Schools Association and our uniform can be found at .

Our School Meals

Our school kitchen has recently been refurbished and can provide either a two course hot meal or a packed lunch for our children. This comes with a drink of water or milk.

Children can be provided with a packed lunch from home. Please do not include a drink, as these children will also be offered a drink of water or milk. It is important that all lunch boxes are clearly named.

As a healthy school we would like to ask those parents who provide their children with a packed lunch from home, to join us in encouraging the children to eat healthy foods.

Our Documents

A full prospectus for our school can be collected from our main office.
All our policies are held in school and can be viewed on request.


Mission Statement

We will create and provide a stimulating educational environment that enables each child to develop his/her individual and collective potential in all aspects of life. The curriculum is the means by which this aim is pursued. The development of self esteem and self motivation is the means by which it is achieved.


At Park Wood Infant School we have a brand new Creative Arts studio, a well equipped ICT Suite, where every child has a computer and we are lucky to have our own outdoor heated swimming pool. All our children enjoy having fun in the pool during the warmer weather.

We believe that every child should be given the best education to meet their individual learning needs. Our school culture is that of building self esteem and positive reinforcement. Each member of our school community is encouraged to take an active part in building an ethos of equal opportunities where diversity is welcomed and celebrated.

Parents in Partnership

Our educational approach is based upon establishing a partnership between school and home. We feel that you know your child best and that, working together, we will give your child a secure platform for learning.

We are keen to involve parents/carers in the life of our school. Recently, grandparents have become a most welcome addition to our school community. Adults may help with cooking, library, craft, technology, hearing children read, overseeing a group activity or accompanying a class on an educational visit.



We share our school site with Parkwood Pre-School.  The Pre-School accepts children from the age of three.  For more information please contact 01634 231425 or email at

Foundation Stage

We are taking the Reggio Emilia approach to Early Years Education, which is based upon the Italian philosophy of exploring the world through the senses. We encourage children to develop their natural curiosity into a desire to learn and achieve. We help children to make sense of the world around them and develop their social skills.

Our three foundation stage classes start in September. The eldest children are full time before the end of Term 1. The youngest children become full time before the end of Term 2.

Key Stage One

In considering a broad and balanced curriculum for our children, we must bear in mind that education is about nurturing the whole child – intellectually, physically, socially, spiritually and emotionally. This can be reflected not only in the ethos of the school but also through the topic based curriculum.

Our three year one classes and our three year two classes, place strong emphasis upon the relevance of reading and enjoying books. Writing, numeracy, mathematical concepts and an understanding of our modern technological world is the basis of our topics.
