Parkwood Primary School

A great start for any child

 You might be able to get a payment of £500 if you’ve been told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace, or you’re the parent or guardian of a child who has been told to self-isolate.

If you’re eligible for either the Test and Trace Support Payment or a discretionary payment, you’ll receive the £500 payment in addition to any benefits and Statutory Sick Pay that you receive currently.


 The Council has produced a useful Self Help Booklet that cover everything to do with COVID.  If you would like a paper copy of this please ring school.


Sign up your under-5s for free books with Keighley Imagination Library 

Sign up your children aged under five to singer Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library free monthly book scheme! Children living in the Keighley Central, Keighley East and Keighley West wards can be signed up via to receive a free age-appropriate book every month through the post addressed to them.


The books are carefully selected and tailored to the age of the recipients, who will get a library of 60 books until their fifth birthday if they are signed up from birth. The library includes traditional stories and rhymes, books by well-known authors and illustrators and a mix of non-fiction and newly published titles.


Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child's future success - more than family circumstances, parents’ educational backgrounds or income. Even just looking at pictures and sharing a book together for 10 minutes a day increases bonding between families and the literacy levels of children, making them better prepared for school and ensuring they have better life chances.





Parkwood Primary School - Good - Ofsted 2020  

The Talk topic this week is:   Can our kindness and compassion make us stronger?


It is a great pleasure to welcome you on behalf of all of our staff, Governors, parents and of course children to our website for Parkwood School in Keighley. West Yorkshire. Our website provides a range of information about Parkwood, which we hope you will find useful.

We are proud to be one of the four founder schools of the Nurture Academies Trust. We converted voluntarily in February 2017 and our other schools in the Trust are Denholme, Lapage and Victoria Primary Schools.  Byron and Fearnville are also part of our Academy Trust.


At Parkwood we provide our children with the best possible education which develops the whole child. Our aim is to serve our community by providing an ambitious education of the highest quality. This is achieved through a happy, stimulating learning environment where excellent staff and resources ensure the children achieve their full potential. We believe that this is achieved through a close trusting relationship between home and school, staff and pupils and between the pupils themselves. We work together at all times to promote the vision, aims and ethos of the school and community.


 Our children are prepared to be self-regulated, independent and imaginative lifelong learners.  We are a community with a Growth Mindset. Everyone is encouraged to be co-operative, curious, persistent, resilient learners who are able to plan and evaluate.  We use a dialogic approach to the curriculum and to the resolution of conflict.
