Welcome To Park Lane

Our school


Welcome to Park Lane, it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to our school along with the wonderful pupils and staff, that makes it a happy, bustling place where all our learners grow. Park Lane serves the Cynon Valley catering for pupil’s aged 4-19 with a diverse range of ability and needs.

We at Park Lane provide a caring and nurturing environment where all our pupils develop into special individuals who are happy, confident, creative and well informed. Providing a safe secure environment which is person centred for all our learners and building strong relationships and trust are essential ingredients within our school.

Our committed and dedicated staff team aims to provide the best provision for all our learners, supported by extensive professional learning opportunities. We aim to ensure that Park Lane is a learning organisation for all, supporting pupils, staff, governors and parents to reach their full potential.

We aim to ensure all children develop a love of learning supported by caring inspirational staff. High expectations and aspirations challenge pupils and staff to be the best version of themselves. Our school moto of Imagine, Believe, Achieve supports this, as we prepare our pupils for the next stage of their lives, whatever that may look like. Our experience rich curriculum offered to the pupils on a day to day basis, is a key factor as we build a curriculum that we believe our pupils deserve.

We have an open door policy at Park Lane so please do not hesitate to contact the school if you require any further information.

About Our School


The well-being of all is a priority for me, and I work hard to support all involved in the school including the pupils, staff and families.


Our values are based on respect, integrity, enthusiasm and achievement, with relationships at the very heart of all that we do.


Our head teacher leads through example and holds the same expectations of all staff.

Child Centred

We are a child centred school with a curriculum which focusses on what matters for our unique pupils.

The Future Is Very Exciting!

We have a high expectation of our staff and all learning experiences need to be exceptional, our curriculum specialist, rewarding and relevant, and the professional development of our staff highly effective.

The Future Is Green

Park Lane School has been working with Eco Schools to re-new the Platinum Award again this year. We encourage everyone in our school & local community to get involved in activities from recycling to climate impact


COVID-19 has enabled us to re-focus on the things that matter and as a result we are building back better.

Our individualised Recovery Curriculum has supported our community to concentrate on what is really important for our pupils. We are coming back after lockdown with a new set of visions, value and aims to make Park Lane school even better than before!
