Partnership Home

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. On 1st June 2011 the Parsons Down Infant School and Parsons Down Junior School officially became partners under one Executive Headteacher. The schools continue to operate as separate entities but the ethos and learning journey flows between the two.

The shared Governing Body our Schools actively encourages and supports the opportunities for staff and children to learn together either through sharing of resources, the sharing of ideas and creations or the sharing of achievements and successes.

Parsons Down Infant and Junior Schools are larger than average schools, collated on a joint campus.  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 areas.  The standard number in each year group rose to 86 in September 2011. In September 2012 the Local Authority have requested FS2 intake to be increased to 90.

On our website you will be able to find 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.

There are a number of links from this website to documents that will give you a great deal of factual information about our schools, including our most recent Ofsted reports.

Please do have a look at our website, if you would like further details, please contact the Partnership directly.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs P Winsor
Executive Headteacher, Parsons Down Partnership of Schools


Parsons Down Partnership of schools is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment.
