According to Ofsted:
Parkfield is much larger than the average primary school. Over a third of pupils are known to be eligible for free school meals, which is well above the national average.
Almost all pupils come from a wide range of minority ethnic groups, which is a high proportion. Of these, just over half are of Pakistani background. The vast majority of pupils speak English as an additional language.
The proportion of pupils with disabilities and special educational needs, including those with a statement of special educational needs, is above average. The school manages a specially resourced provision on site for up to 6 pupils with behaviour, social and emotional difficulties.
The school meets the current floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for pupils’ progress and attainment. The school has received many awards in recognition of its work; A Leading Aspect Award for ICT, A Leading Aspect Award for the Early Years Foundation Stage, A Leading Aspect Award for Behaviour Management and the 10 year Basic Skills Quality Mark award.
