“You must never feel badly about making mistakes ... as long as you take the trouble to learn from them. For you often learn more by being wrong for the right reasons than you do by being right for the wrong reasons.” ―
Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

Ethos and Values

Our Vision
At Parkfield Community School, our children come first and our priority is to deliver outstanding teaching and learning whilst at the same time providing rich and truly enjoyable learning experiences for our community of children.


Our Ethos

Everything we do as a school is to ensure that the children achieve their very best, make outstanding behavioural choices and show tolerance, respect and an understanding towards others, no matter their race, religion, gender orientation, age, disabilities, gender or sexual orientation. We are deeply aware that children only get one chance at their primary education and it is our job to ensure that they all reach for the highest levels of personal achievement and development.

We want every child to be successful; to reach for success from the very first day they join us and throughout their school lives so that when they leave us, they have a love of learning for the rest of their lives.

Our Values

At Parkfield Community School, we believe in:

  • Succeeding together
  • Engaging learning
  • Ensuring equality for all
  • Aspiring from the start
