Welcome to Our School Website!
Our Ethos & Values
It is an absolute pleasure and honour to welcome you to the Parklee Community Primary School website.
Parklee’s Mission Statement is: “Enjoy, Engage, Empower” and this, along with the core values of:
Positivity, Aspiration, Resilience, Kindness, Loyalty, Empathy and Excellence, underpins everything we do.
We are a primary school in Atherton, Wigan which was officially opened in 1973. Prior to this the Parklee pupils attended the original Lee Street School – some of our staff who are past pupils of Lee Street remember walking across to the new premises with their equipment trays!
Our school has a positive reputation for embracing and celebrating every kind of achievement. This is reflected in our commitment to inclusion and unity. Relationships and attitudes are very positive and an ethos exists in which learning together becomes an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for all making our school a happy and engaging place to learn and work. Every member of our team here at Parklee are proudly committed to ensuring that every child flourishes. Our children are incredibly precious to us and we understand how important it is that they develop as happy, well-rounded individuals. We enjoy working alongside our parents and carers to enable their children to thrive here as they become successful and engaged learners. Our school is fortunate to serve a strong and unique community and we are very proud of our history and position within that. By working together with ambition and optimism, strengthened with local support, we provide every opportunity for the children and families to thrive and shine.
It is a privilege to serve as Headteacher of Parklee and I feel that in collaboration with you, my principal role is to make sure your children are happy, safe and achieving well. I believe children should feel secure, supported, inspired and challenged and that they will achieve well if they are cared for and clear about what is expected of them. My strong belief is that education has the power to change children’s whole lives, providing opportunities for them to flourish within and beyond the classroom so they may achieve the highest standards academically whilst developing and nurturing their unique talents, creativity, interests and personalities.
If you have any questions, thoughts or comments I encourage you to speak to me, I am always happy to listen and I am keen to hear your ideas, please feel free to email or leave a message at the office and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I hope you enjoy looking around our website to get a feeling for our wonderful school and I look forward to welcoming you in the near future,
With very best wishes,
Mrs D Roper - Headteacher
