Professional Development

At Park we are committed to developing all staff and improving teaching, learning and work responsibilities in order to raise standards of achievement for all pupils.

We believe we have plenty to learn from each other both within and outside our own school. We firmly believe in the need for continued development and improvement which is embedded in evaluative and reflective practice and which is increasingly research informed. Therefore we look to create meaningful learning communities to take this vision forward. 


Park Primary is part of the Newham North Learning Partnership (NNLP), a local partnership of schools in North Newham.

The vision of NNLP is to create an exemplary model of partnership working through which to develop in our young people a love of learning and the confidence, resilience, ambition and integrity to achieve great things and lead healthy, safe and successful lives in modern Britain.

The schools have been working together for a few years, in a variety of ways, and have decided to form a soft federation which will officially support the work of school staff, as well as share community and welfare services.
