Recovery Plan / Catch Up 2022/23


Closing the gap at Parklands is one of our greatest priorities. Parents will be informed if their child is in need of additional tuition.

We all want bright futures for our children and success for our schools. Wanting this is easy. Delivering it is

Now we must do more to ensure every child can access cornerstone literacy and numeracy skills, wherever they live and learn. We must do more to ensure that children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and children with a social worker have the same opportunities to thrive as their peers. We must continue to address the educational and emotional impact of the pandemic, particularly for more disadvantaged and vulnerable children.


  1. introduce and implement standards that will improve children’s education
  2. deliver the right support if they fall behind
  3. give them the tools to lead a happy, fulfilled and successful life.


We need to go from roughly seven in ten children achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and maths by the end of primary school to nine in ten children by 2030.

A flourishing school system can only be achieved by schools working in partnership with each other, so that the achievements of the very best schools can reach every corner of the country.


Parklands Summary

  1. This government’s Levelling Up mission for schools is that by 2030, 90% of children will leave primary school having achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths, up from 65% in 2019. These ambitions will be the measure of this white paper’s success.
  2. The best schools are realising these standards already, but our aim is to achieve these excellent outcomes for children and young people nationally.

We will do this through two key principles:

  • a rigorous commitment to using, building and sharing evidence so that every class knows ‘what works’ for all of their children (linking with the Tutor Trust and the Outwood English Hub);
  • a focus on enabling collaboration between teachers, other schools and wider children’s services so that every child is supported to realise their full potential.


  1. At the heart of these ambitions is the need for an excellent teacher for every child in classrooms at Parklands. Improving the quality of teaching is the single most important in-school factor in improving outcomes for children, especially for children from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).


The Facts

Literacy and numeracy are the bedrock of a great education, unlocking the whole curriculum and turbocharging social mobility. They are the essential tools which allow children to go on to further training and employment, and to live fulfilled lives.

Working closely with the Education Endowment Foundation and The Tutor Trust and the Outwood English Hub, Parklands will build the evidence base on effective teacher development, and thus driving standards of teaching even higher.
