Parkfield Primary School is a community school under the control of Wolverhampton LA and has no affiliation to any religious denomination. The school follows the LA Admissions Policy and the Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education. Membership of any specific religious group does not exclude a child from admission to this school.
All children who live in the locality around the school, or who have brothers or sisters already at the school are able to attend if there are sufficient places available.
For more information on School Admissions, please click here.
School Session times are as follows:
Foundation Stage, Year 1, Year 2
Morning: 8:50 am - 12:00 noon
Afternoon:1:00 pm - 3:25 pm
Years 3,4,5 and 6
Morning: 8:50 am - 12:00 noon
Afternoon:1:00 pm - 3:25 pm
A teacher will be on duty each day from 8:30am, when the playground gates will be opened. School cannot be responsible for children before this time. The Breakfast Café will open at 8.35 serving bagels and fruit juice. The school doors will open at 8.45am and the children should enter by the correct door from the playground. Parents should not come into school with children but remain outside. Playground doors will then be locked at 8.55am and late children should then use the front door of the school. It is hoped every effort will be made for children to be at school ‘on time’, as the first twenty minutes is a very important part of the day.
The school day ends at 3.25pm. Foundation Stage children are collected from their outside classroom door. Year 1 are collected from the staff entrance door (on the Foundation Stage playground). Yr 2 are collected from the KS2 playground door. Yrs 3 and 4 are collected from their classroom doors. Yrs 5 and 6 are collected from the Yr 6 classroom door. If, for any reason, a child is not collected they will be taken to the main entrance until a responsible adult arrives and the school will attempt to contact parents. In the event of severe lateness, without notification, Social Services will be informed.
Please ensure that you contact the school to inform staff if you are running late or if someone else is collecting your children.
If it is necessary for your children to leave school for any reason during the school day, the collecting adult should sign them out of school and sign them back in on their return. Under no circumstances will children be allowed to leave the premises during the day unless they are collected by a responsible adult.
There are three options you may wish to choose:
School lunch (paid/free)
Packed lunch from home
Home for lunch
Please could you inform school at the beginning of term of your intentions? Should you wish to change these arrangements please inform the school in writing. This should only ever be on a weekly basis; it will not be possible to change on a daily basis.
If the children go home for lunch, they should return to school before the beginning of the afternoon session.
It is always helpful if children paying for a school lunch could bring money in an envelope labelled with their name, class and amount enclosed.
All children in Key Stage 1 are entitled to a free school meal automatically. To learn more about the eligibility requirements and how to apply for free school meals, click the link below.

At Parkfield Primary School, the Governors and Staff believe that school uniform is important. It gives children a feeling of belonging, pride in their appearance and avoids the problem of children wearing unsuitable clothes to school.
Our School Uniform is:
Red sweatshirt, jumper or cardigan
White shirt, blouse or polo shirt
Black or grey skirt or trousers
Black sensible low heeled shoes (no trainers)
Red or white tee-shirt
Red or white shorts
Black pumps or trainers
Jewellery is not part of school uniform and should not be worn to school. It can be a safety hazard, especially at break times or during PE lessons. If children have pierced ears, then small studs should be worn, and not hoops or drop earrings.
The school stocks a selection of items at reasonable prices. Order forms can be collected from the school office. All other items are easily obtained from chain stores or the market. Each item of clothing should be clearly marked with the child’s name. We cannot be responsible for confusion over clothing if this is not the case.
All children are encouraged to take care of their belongings and to have respect for other people’s property. School cannot be held responsible for loss or damage, which may occur to pupils’ property while it is on the school premises.
At Parkfield Primary school we run a Breakfast Cafe every morning during the week.
Why do we run a Breakfast Cafe?
A hungry child is more likely to be restless, unhappy, lethargic, distracted or disruptive in lessons. We want all of our children to have a nutritious breakfast. We want all of our children to be ready for learning. We want to support and help our families. A hungry child is simply not ready for learning and will not achieve their best.
What is a Breakfast Cafe?
Our Breakfast Café gives the children the opportunity to have a free bagel and fruit juice every single day. We are very fortunate to be working with a charity called Magic Breakfast from whom we buy our bagels and fruit juice at a discounted cost.
When does it open?
Our Breakfast Café opens every day, Monday–Friday, at 8:35am and runs until 8:45am. Why not give it a try.
Who are Magic Breakfast?
Magic Breakfast are a charity who help schools to provide free, nutritious breakfasts to schools where over 35% of pupils are eligible for free school meals. Magic Breakfast came into being because evidence shows that eating a healthy breakfast helps to improve a child's concentration, behaviour, attendance, punctuality and educational attainment.
Extra curricular activities are provided for the children after school. Many of the clubs are linked to external competitions, this year, giving the children opportunities to represent their school. This Year’s clubs are as follows:
