Welcome to Parkwood Academy and Nursery


Parkwood Academy and Nursery is a primary school for children that welcomes pupils aged from 3 to 11.  We aim to provide an education where the individual child is at the heart of everything we do. We hope that our website provides a sense of our school values, and the aspirations we have for the pupils in our care.  Please explore to learn more about our school or contact us to arrange a visit – we are looking forward to being able to welcome visitors, COVID-19 permitting, in the future.

It’s that time of the year when the mornings are darker and the nights are drawing in.  Click the image to view some tips for those darker days.

Visit us virtually!

Due to restrictions on the number of visitors to the school, we have not been able to welcome visitors or prospective children and parents to our open mornings as we have done previously. This is to mitigate the risk of possible transmission of COVID-19.

Instead, we have created an interactive brochure for you. You can find our prospectus here. Hopefully, this will give you a flavour of our school and the community in which we work. If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact the school directly on or where our friendly staff will be more than happy to help you. We look forward to working with you very soon.

Our latest newsletter.

We send out a weekly newsletter, the ‘Parkwood Post’ to parents and carers via email. Paper copies are held in the main office. You can find a copy of the weekly newsletter here.

Home learning resources.

In the event of school closure due to COVID 19, you can find our Blended Learning contingency plan attached here. 

If any individual year groups or the school as a whole has to close due to COVID-19, home learning resources will appear here.
