Our School

I am delighted to welcome you to the website of Calverley Parkside Primary School and Nursery.

Our school is situated in the heart of the village, well away from the busy main roads, overlooking Victoria Park. This provides our pupils with a delightful backdrop to their playgrounds and we use it regularly for sporting activities and environmental learning. The addition of school based before and after school care has further enhanced how we meet the needs of our community.

Visitors to Calverley Parkside often comment on how friendly and welcoming our pupils are. We feel that this is very important and regularly receive complements on how well our pupils conduct themselves. This openness to new people and new ideas helps us in our primary aim of 'OPENING DOORS TO POSSIBILITIES' for our pupils. To further enhance this ambition to give ours pupils a great start, we are a partner school within the Noctua Teaching Alliance.

We hope you can find a lot of information from our website, however the best way to find out more about our school is to visit and meet our amazing pupils and dedicated staff. We are a popular school and we regularly welcome new pupils throughout the year when a space becomes available. Please contact the school office to arrange a tour with the headteacher and to find out more about how we put our vision of ‘Challenge, Pleasure, Success through Learning’ into action at Calverley Parkside School.

On behalf of our Governing Body, staff and most importantly our pupils, I look forward to welcoming you to our school community.
