We are proud of our community school and the part that we play in the success and effectiveness of South Essex Academy Trust (SEAT). We hope that this website provides all the information you may need to support our quest to work together to enable each and every child to be the best they can be.

Parkwood Academy is a warm, welcoming school, recently judged to be ‘Good’ in its OFSTED inspection of September 2017. Our success is founded on our collective approach to our trust values: Collaboration, Perseverance, Challenge and Innovation. Our children benefit from creative and effective approaches to learning through opportunities such as Forest Schools in our extensive green grounds and tried and tested practice such as ‘In the moment planing’ based on the practice of Anna Ephgrave. This has resulted in rapid progress in Nursery and Reception through to progress above national at the end of year 6. We invite you to look at our results on this website.

If you are considering applying for a place at Parkwood Academy, we welcome you to contact the school office using the contact details on this website. You can find out if there is a place available in your child’s year group and take a tour to see our happy and successful learning environment for yourself. A warm welcome awaits you.

With kind regards

Mrs Crystal Wiggs
