Thank you to all our pupils, parents, staff and governors who helped us select our new school emblem. The design showing the swan and the cygnet received the highest number of votes and has been selected as the new PDP emblem.
Welcome to the Parsons Down Partnership of Schools.
Parsons Down Infant and Junior Schools are larger than average schools, situated in Thatcham on the eastern side of Newbury. Pupils are organised into three classes per year group. Foundation Stage children are taught separately in a Foundation Stage Unit which has its own secure outside learning area.
Both Schools work closely together for the benefit of our children and families. With this in mind we share Core Framework: a vision, mission and core values which we believe will enable us to achieve our goals and aspirations for the future.
Our vision, ‘Inspiring Excellence’ and mission statement, ‘ Making a difference together’, underpin everything we do.
Our core values – Challenge, Enjoyment, Pride, Respect and Safety, are evident throughout our school, our children and our staff. Our children are confident young individuals who enjoy their learning and rise enthusiastically to the challenges set by staff to support and extend their learning.
Our Partnership has a shared Governing Body which actively encourages and supports the opportunities for staff and children to learn together either through the sharing of resources, the sharing of ideas and creations or the sharing of achievements and successes.
On our website you will be able to find a great deal of information about our daily school life. A visit to our Schools would be the most effective way to see for yourself the life and learning that makes the Parsons Down Partnership the exciting learning environment that it is.Please do have a look at our website, if you would like further details, please contact the Partnership directly.
