Our Vision


The vision of the Governors of Parkdale Primary, is as follows:

We aim to offer a rich and engaging school experience in which children are willing partners in their own learning. They should enjoy school, form friendships for life and become responsible, respectful young people. We want staff to deliver a curriculum that is diverse, thought-provoking, creative, inspirational and tailored to be relevant to the lives and interests of our pupils. We aim to provide a wealth of memorable moments and experiences. We are committed to delivering a broad curriculum and not to narrow our focus to the ‘tested’ areas. We want our school to be ‘Outstanding’, whilst maintaining this child-centred, holistic approach. We expect to see children supported and challenged to achieve the highest possible academic outcomes for them. We expect to see outcomes that compare favourably to local and national averages. This is what parents, other stakeholders and pupils have told us that they want and expect. We aim for Parkdale to be the school of choice for families and the employer of choice for staff.
