Welcome to our Website

Parkstone Primary School is proud to be a good school that puts children at the heart of all it does. We are a forward thinking school and we promote a ‘can do’ attitude. We want the best for every child in our care and provide a safe, caring environment where children achieve highly in all aspects of school life.

We believe that we are a community of learners which includes all members of the school community and we believe we provide the best opportunities for all. We actively encourage forging positive partnerships with parents and the local community. Good communication between home and school ensures a smooth transition and enables our staff to learn more about your child to help them achieve their best and be happy in school. Enjoyment, challenge and activity are at the heart of successful learning and we endeavour to achieve this through our broad and balanced curriculum which allows every child to achieve their full potential.

Hopefully the rest of the information featured in this site will offer a flavour of what we do as well as providing regular updated information for existing parents and pupils.
Do visit the school and meet the staff and our lovely children: you will receive a warm welcome!

Mrs S Waller  –  Headteacher

School Dinners

We pride ourselves in supplying our children with excellent food. We feel that it is one of the most important parts of a child’s life – to eat properly. Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round, specifically helping with their concentration levels – which in turn affects achievement. Its good to know that our children are getting a well balanced and healthy meal.

Premium Spends
Spending Money

The school is granted premiums each year to spend on supporting children in their education. Here we have information on the Pupil Premium and Sport Premiun spends.

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
