A great start for any child
A note from the Governors:
"Parkwood Primary is an outstanding school. Its success comes from the excellent and extensive range of learning opportunities for all our children. From Nursery through to Year 6 they enjoy a high quality education, led by hard working and inspirational staff. We offer a safe, caring and happy enviornment at Parkwood."
"Outstanding provision in the Early Years Foundation Stage sets children well on the way to becoming independent, responsible and caring young citizens of the future."
"Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilites are identified are early on and given exceptional care and support."
"At Parkwood we have helpful and caring staff who all do a great job. It is the best school in the world because it keeps me healthy. Parkwood is fantastic because we learn a lot about keeping safe."
"Communication with parents is good as are the varied activities for the children. Parkwood builds confidence in the children. The great teachers make learning fun."
"Parkwood has proven to be a fantastic choice for my children. The staff are so dedicated to the care, education and well-being of every child."
"The teachers are lovely and we have lots of chances to stand up, speak out and make a difference. The school helps us think about our future and what it will be like."
"My two children love coming to school. Every day sees a new challenge tht they are excited to tackle."
If someone was being bullied it always gets sorted out. We always play together and don't fall out. It's good to be good at Parkwood and we have fantastic Big Treats every half term, such as bouncy castles, disco, Magic Andy and a big play."
"We have amazing trips and going to Nell Bank in Year 6 was a fantastic residential visit. The highlight of my school year has been going to Murton Park where we lived like Vikings for the day."
Pupils' love of learning is evident; one parent reported that their child often declares,"Another great day at a fab school!"
"As a parent and governor I'm so please about the outcome of the Ofsted report. It's a warm, friendly school and the staff are all supportive of the children and parents. I've seen the school develop immensely and know it's outstanding. Parents are made so welcome and The Hub, which was built for the parents, is a fantastic addition to the school and shows how much families are valued."
