Resilience ~ Responsibility ~ Collaboration ~ Success
Parkwall Primary School is situated on a large green site on the eastern fringe of Bristol which draws children from Cadbury Heath, Longwell Green and Barrs Court areas. The school is part of The Park and Parkwall Federation which serves communities in Kingswood and Cadbury Heath.
At Parkwall and across the Federation we have created an ethos that promotes and expects high standards in learning and behaviour and strives for excellence. Through our interesting and vibrant curriculum, and the celebration of success, we believe that our children will develop our vision of lifelong learning.
We are very proud of our school, its committed and professional staff team and the positive caring environment at Parkwall where all members of our partnership are valued; children, parents and staff. We would be very pleased to show you around either of our schools.
‘Working together to empower children to become aspirational, global citizens’
“Talented senior leaders’ clear guidance and support for teachers have been effective in raising the quality of teaching, learning and assessment in the school.
All staff consistently provide the highest quality of care and fully safeguard the pupils’ welfare. Pupils say that they feel extremely safe and secure at school.
Pupils are proud of their achievements. They take great pride in their learning. This is reflected in the high quality of handwriting and presentation in their books.”
