Our Vision and Values

Welcome to

Co-op Academy Parkland

We are a friendly, inclusive and vibrant primary academy in the heart of Greengates and Thorpe Edge. We are a single form entry and benefit from extensive grounds where our children take part in the Daily Mile.

Our ethos is found within our vision in that we believe in making sure our children are safe and happy within our community. We build strong relationships to nurture our children and empower them with the skills and knowledge to be the best versions of themselves which aligns to our Co-op Ways of Being.

A Warm Welcome
From our Headteacher

Mrs Charlotte Wierzbianski, Headteacher

Welcome to Co-op Academy Parkland, I am proud to be the Head of Academy. I have been teaching since 2001 and have enjoyed a happy career in a variety of schools. I came to Parkland in 2018 and began teaching in Year 6 in addition to being Assistant Head. I have loved my time here building relationships with our families and was thrilled to be appointed as Head of Academy in June 2022. I have a personal interest in improving the outcomes for every child within our academy; especially when it comes to careers related learning. I am determined to provide a high quality education which develops aspirations and challenges stereotypes along the way.

The Co-op curriculum supports the school’s teaching of personal, social, health and economic themes. Pupils learn about other peoples’ faiths and beliefs. They visit places of worship as well as other cultural venues in the city. There are opportunities for pupils to develop leadership responsibilities by representing their peers at the school council.

Members of the eco-warriors group attended a conference to learn about zero-carbon footprints. They have started an after-school club to find ways to reduce the school’s carbon footprint. The many opportunities available to pupils effectively contribute towards supporting their broader development.
