This section of the website is designed to help parents/carers in their role of helping children to achieve their best. It can be easy to assume that by the time children have reached secondary school, there isn’t much parents can do to influence their success. There is!

When pupils come to Parklands High School, parents/carers, the pupils and the school sign a Home-School Agreement. This document sets out what we expect of each other (please click here for a copy). It is a statement of our shared responsibilities. We see it as a formal agreement that we will all work together for the benefit of every pupil.

When a pupil enters Year 7 at Parklands your first concern will be for the safety and security of your child. That is also our concern.

You will already know about how much emphasis we place upon getting to know each young person individually. Parents can be reassured that pupils from a range of different schools and backgrounds bond together well in our vertical tutor groups, lessons and other groupings. New friendships are always quickly made and initial concerns usually disappear within the first few days. If you have concerns about this, however, please contact your child’s Form Tutor or their House Achievement Leader (HAL).
