The school was opened in 1972 as Park Gate Junior School. In 1995 the school changed status from a junior school to a primary school, due to the growth in pupil numbers in the area. The school now has pupils aged 4–11 years of age. The school is able to accommodate 420 children in total, organised in 7 year groups of 2 classes.

The School Governors

Every school has a governing body. This is a voluntary group of people who work with the headteacher and other school staff to help manage the school. Governors are involved in monitoring the work of the school and ensuring that the highest standards are achieved.

To enable the governors to function in an efficient and appropriate manner, the whole governing body meet once a month.   Any correspondence for the governors should be addressed to the Chair of Governors.

 Complaints Procedure

 If a parent has a concern that they wish to raise this would usually be addressed to the class teacher in the first instance. If the concern is of a serious nature or the matter is not resolved, the headteacher should be contacted.

 If there is no resolution to a complaint at this point, parents are advised to contact the Chair of Governors.

 For further information about the complaints procedure please contact the school office or our full complaints procedure can be found on the website.

 The School Office

The school office staff team hope to be able to help parents with any queries and concerns. The office opens each day at 8.20am and is staffed throughout the school day.

 It would be extremely helpful to the office staff if any monies coming into school could be sent in on Mondays. This makes collation and banking of any funds more manageable. All cheques coming into the office should be made payable to ‘Hampshire County Council’.

 If you would like to talk to a member of the teaching staff, please ensure you enquire at the school office first and make a member of the office staff aware that you are in the school building.

 If you would like to leave a message for a member of staff or for your child, concerning arrangements for collection at the end of the day for example, the office staff will be more than happy to help with this.

 There are times when the school office is very busy and we ask parents to be patient at these times.

 If you would like to contact the school office please telephone 01489 575444 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
