Personal Character Qualities
At Parkfield we believe it's incredibly important to develop a child as a whole - personally and academically - so that they become lifelong learners and are ready for their next stage of education. Our approach to support each child's personal development is to focus on a particular skill each half term across the school. Although these skills are continually developed, the overview below indicates when we focus on a particular skill during the year.

Parkfield Character Award
Two pupils are awarded the Parkfield Character award each half-term for demonstrating the characteristic being focused upon. These are chosen from the selection of children nominated by all the staff.
The award is in memory of ex-Parkfielder Lance Corporal Scott Hetherington who was tragically killed in January 2017. When he was a pupil at Parkfield, Scott was as a great 'Character' that was full of life!
