Welcome!

A warm welcome to Park Street Church of England Primary School in the heart of Cambridge.

Park Street is a uniquely wonderful place for children to learn! With only 110 pupils, relationships are at the heart of the school, where every member of staff knows all our children and families well. Everybody feels part of our small ‘family’!

Personalised learning becomes possible and successful when children’s individual learning needs and interests are known well by their teachers. Children thrive through our encouraging, creative and ambitious approach, where the individuality and contribution of all is highly valued. The highly invested staff team are committed to seeing them grow to fulfil their potential, and develop a lifelong love of learning. For our global population of pupils, we provide a flexible, responsive curriculum, led by enthusiastic teachers attuned to satisfying children’s curiosity and inquiring minds.

Sarah Hawker, HeadteacherOur values are:

Honesty and Respect, Friendship and Kindness, Learning and Fun.

These are underpinned by our Christian Vision as a Church of England School, with strong links to the University Church of Great St Mary’s.

During the pandemic, because of our size, it has been possible to successfully maintain our community, keeping in touch with everybody and helping all children to continue learning through ‘live’ teaching sessions as well as with online resources. Follow the links to learn about Park Street CoE School Online and Park Street’s Provision for Learning during the Summer Term just past.

Whether you are new to the school, considering joining us, or have been a part of our community for years, we would love to share more of the life of Park Street with you here on our Latest School News section.

Head’s Message to Parents

Park Street is working successfully in a Covid-secure way. Please feel free to read our Covid-19 Risk Assessment.  If children need to be at home due to Covid-19 symtoms, self-isolation or any other reason, they can follow the learning taking place in class by logging on to Microsoft Teams (Tapestry for Owl Class). Here they can see the ‘Learning Journeys’ for maths, English, History and RE, and activities and homework linked to these. This will minimise any disruption to their learning, and allows them to slot back in successfully when they return to school.

The Latest School News page gives information and photographs of activities taking place in school every week. Look at for your children having fun with their learning!

Please check the information on the Parents’ page, regarding uniform and equipment.  Due to Covid-19 measures, please ensure that your child does not bring any additional stationery, toys or equipment to school with them.

Please read the current newsletter, self-isolation information, and local facts and figures about the virus, for further information.

The school day is staggered to avoid too many children and parents congregating at the gates.
