Welcome to – 
Parkstone Primary School

At Parkstone, we aim to provide our children with a safe, secure environment in which they can take risks in their learning.

Every day, they are supported in developing their skills and attitudes which will help them to develop in confidence and independence.

When children leave us, we want them to have a love of learning which will stay with them throughout their life. Enjoyment, challenge and activity are at the heart of successful learning and we endeavour to achieve this through a broad and balanced curriculum which allows every child to achieve their potential.

We want our children to be the very best they can be!

Do visit our school and meet the staff and our lovely children: you will receive a warm welcome.
