Parkend Primary School

Welcome to Parkend Primary School's Website   

Hello and welcome to the website for Parkend Primary School, part of The Forest of Dean Community Schools Federation, linked with Yorkley Primary School, working together to make our community stronger. 


Parkend Primary School is a 'small school with BIG ideas', that is popular, well respected with 56 children on role. The school is set within the heart of the Forest of Dean, where children enjoy the benefits of the outdoor learning, such as our Forest Classroom, Trim Trail and a newly launched PlayPod.

I have had the pleasure of leading Parkend Primary since February 2022, together as a team, staff have a clear and ambitious vision for providing high quality education for all pupils. Parents describe the ethos of the school as warm, welcoming and inclusive. Standards at Parkend continue to improve year on year with children leaving well prepared citizens. 

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you make for them early on in their life. Limited places are still available in some year groups. I would encourage you to come, get a feel for our school and relax in the knowledge that when your child joins Parkend, they will be happy and flourish.
