Head Teacher's Welcome
Welcome to Parkfield Primary School website, which I am sure you will agree is informative and gives you a flavour as a potential parent of what we have to offer at our school.
If you are an existing parent / carer then I am sure that you will enjoy celebrating pupil achievement and accessing key information easily.
Parkfield Primary School formed a hard federation with St Stephen's Church of England Primary School where I was the Headteacher in September 2012 and I am very proud to be the Executive Headteacher across the federation.
I hope that as you explore the website you will find the information that you need and you will get a flavour of our school. Should you require any further information or wish to visit our school please feel free to come and see us at Parkfield.
We are very proud of children, their achievements and the progress that they make and I would love to show you around.

We are committed to making sure all children receive the best educational experiences possible, allowing them to achieve their individual potential in a safe, exciting and nurturing environment. We also understand and work hard to make sure we are fulfilling the 3 main roles required of all Governors:
Ensuring there is a clear vision, ethos and that the school knows where it is heading
Ensuring that we ask the right questions to ensure the school is doing what it should
Working closely with Trustees to ensure the school spends wisely, always with the best interest of children in mind
We do everything we can to support the ethos of the school – The Parkfield 6.
We believe that everyone’s uniqueness should be recognised and celebrated
We encourage everyone to have the highest aspirations, ensuring children and adults discover their own potential and reach for the stars
We understand that sometimes life can be difficult, but we encourage everyone to work together, to persevere and to flourish
We are committed to ensuring that children receive the best school experience possible so that they can achieve academically, spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally
We recognise the right of children and adults to be respected and to show others the respect they deserve, in school and outside, offline and online

We try hard to use every opportunity to work closely with the school, supporting and asking the right questions, to ensure:

teaching is the best it can be, always placing the child at the centre
that resources are chosen and used wisely

the school’s effectiveness is benchmarked, and that the school continues to aim high
the school remains up to date with educational thinking, and that new ways of working, including the use of technology, are taken on if they have a benefit
that everyone has the chance to have their say and to contribute to the way in which the school works – this includes children, their families, the school workforce and the community
that everyone’s wellbeing is at the heart of what we do, so that all children, staff, parents and families feel happy, welcomed, included and valued
that Governors are visible, approachable, accountable, knowledgeable and a part of everyday school life
We truly believe in the children, the families, the staff and the wider community at Parkfield Primary School and look forward to continuing to help lead the school so that it can be the best it can be.

PE & Sports Premium
What is the Sports Premium?
The Government has provided substantial primary school sport funding since academic year 2013/14.
This funding has been jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Purpose of the funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. The amount of money a school gets depends on its size.
The Government has suggested possible uses for the funding and these include:
Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
Providing places for pupils on after school sport competitions and school staff support

What is Pupil Premium funding given for?
Pupil Premium funding is given to schools for children who have/ have been registered for FSM (Free School Meals) in the past 6 years, are the children of members in the armed forces, are being looked after or have been adopted from care.
What is Pupil Premium used for?
Pupil Premium is used to help close the attainment gap between children of low income and of disadvantaged families, and their peers.

Special Educational Needs & Disability
Assistance is available for those children with learning or behavioural difficulties. This help is generally provided as a matter of course by the teaching staff of the school, however, children with special difficulties are referred to specialist teachers who are provided by the Local Authority. The use of these teaching specialists always follows discussions with parents, in conjunction with our Special Needs Co-ordinator.
All children starting in the Foundation class in September will receive a home visit during which information from parents can be shared regarding their child’s needs and education.
All children who join our school mid-year, regardless of their age, are invited into school with their parents for an induction meeting and tour. At this meeting information from parents can be shared regarding their child’s needs and education.
All children are assessed when they join our school, so that we can build upon their prior learning. We use this information to provide starting points for the development of an appropriate curriculum for all our children.
The Wolverhampton Local Offer sets out all services available to support children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities, from birth to 25 years, and their families.
