School Description

Pupils love attending The Parkside School. They say that it is a great place to learn and that all staff help them and make them feel safe. The school is a community, where pupils care and look after one another. A pupil who had joined the school quite recently said, ‘I like it better here because I have friends to play with.’ Parents and carers describe the school as ‘brilliant’ and ‘exemplary’. Leaders expect the very best of pupils in lessons and at playtimes. They support pupils extremely well so that they meet these expectations. Pupils say that bullying is rare at The Parkside School. They know that if it does happen, they must tell an adult, who will sort out the problem. Playtimes are happy times. Leaders carefully manage the use of the limited play space available so that everyone can enjoy time outside. Pupils like the silent disco, playing football and using the play equipment. There are lots of adults around who encourage pupils to join in games and help any pupil who needs it. Older pupils act as mentors for younger ones and take their responsibilities seriously. Some pupils like to stay inside in the nurture group for some playtimes. Here, older and younger pupils enjoy taking turns in games, chatting and drawing. Others enjoy lunchtime clubs such as computing club.
