About Parkside Community School

We are an Ofsted Good School (2022) that is continually developing and improving to move forward to provide the very best experience for our staff, pupils, and community.

Parkside Community School is a good school with sustained improvement over time. In 2022 the school achieved a progress 8 score of +0.61, following a score of +0.59 in 2019 when performance figures were last published. This makes Parkside the highest achieving school in Derbyshire for progress in three of the last four years in which performance figures have been published. 

Underpinning our success are our valued, passionate, and dedicated staff team who benefit from manageable workloads, extensive opportunities within continuous professional development programmes and a fun, driven and exciting working environment.

Our ethos and collective purpose is to ensure that pupils, staff, families and the wider community fully commit to ‘Caring about the choices that will shape your future’. We are absolutely committed to supporting every member of staff to thrive and achieve the level of performance, career progression and fulfilment their care, ambition and commitment demonstrates.

The intent of the Parkside Curriculum is to be leading edge, facilitating the best academic and personal development outcomes for our pupils. Our Parkside Support Centre is driven to provide all necessary support to ensure our pupils can learn, participate, and feel they belong to Parkside.

Parkside has and will continue to positively serve to change life chances for pupils, and we are forever grateful to all those who contribute to this process.
