Welcome to the Parkview Primary School Website.


Developing happy, healthy, confident and articulate learners is at the heart of everything we do at Parkview Primary School. From the first steps in the School Nursery or Reception Class, right through to Year 6, we focus on developing the life skills of our pupils, as well as their academic ability.

We pride ourselves on the happy family atmosphere, and the stimulating learning environment in which friendships flourish and pupils achieve. We provide the excellent standard of education our pupils deserve, and a warm mix of experiences that enrich their daily learning.

Our commitment to the pursuit of excellence is demonstrated by the dedication and hard work of everyone involved in the School teaching and support staff, pupils, parents, governors and community groups.

Parents and pupils who wish to join us for a visit to experience the learning environment at first hand will be very welcome.
