At Parkgate Infants and Nursery School we provide a caring, safe and secure environment where children are able to develop and gain the skills to become happy, healthy and independent individuals ready to take their place in a diverse community and challenging world. Based in North Watford, we feel that being an Infants and Nursery School is very special as we are able to focus on children’s learning at the start of their school journey. Staff are committed to both the children and the School, and work together as a team towards achieving the School Vision that “Anything is Possible”. Our long-standing Headteacher retired in 2017 after 26 years, and we are currently working with an Acting Head for the 2017-18 academic year.
The Governors of the School are looking to appoint a permanent Headteacher for September 2018, who will be:
committed to a culture of continuous improvement of education standards that promotes excellence for staff and pupils alike, and builds on our current Ofsted rating of ‘Good’, maintained at our last inspection in November 2014
articulate, with the ability to communicate clearly and effectively to a range of audiences, and be engaged in an active partnership between school, home, and the wider community
