Information about the school

Parkside Community Foundation Primary School is a small, growing, happy school on the outskirts of Canterbury. We have a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures within our school and this greatly enriches and enhances our school community.

Our pupils benefit from small classes and a high level of teaching assistant support in every class. After some testing years, we now have a new leadership team in place and the school is showing greatly improved results. We have been able to make significant improvements to, and investments in, our school site and we have an exciting future ahead.

At Parkside, we value greatly outdoor learning and are quickly improving a range of outdoor learning environments, including our own forest school area which has been established, along with a full time Forest School Practitioner. We are also benefitting from a range of new outdoor provision, with a new trim trail having just opened, alongside an artificial MUGA, built in July 2022, to further improve facilities for the children.
