At Parkfield, we believe that every child should be given the opportunity to find out what their special talents are and to develop skills which will make them a successful and confident learner. Our amazing staff and pupils can speak 58 different languages between them and we enjoy learning about each other's backgrounds, experiences and traditions.
We believe that at Parkfield we provide a positive, friendly and calm environment which promotes high expectations in a learning culture that values everyone. We use "monster thinking" to help children understand how to be successful learners.
We are proud of our achievements and the fantastic behaviour of our pupils. Ofsted judged us as a good school with outstanding early years provision in July 2015. We have nursery classes for two year olds and three year olds with some part time and some full time places for those entitled to free provision and parents who choose to pay. In August 2013 Parkfield became an Academy sponsored by The Elliot Foundation. We have close links with Parkfield Children's Centre which is next door to our school.
Our modern building has lots of beautiful spaces for learning in, both indoors and out of doors. We are especially proud of our fantastic library - we believe all children should love to read. Each year group plans their work around a theme and many of those are inspired by books and stories.
