• The Award for Teacher of the Year in a Primary School
  • Cantley Primary School
  • Norwich, Norfolk

In essence, Mr Parkhouse’s teaching is just completely inspiring. He has fabulous relationships with the children who are relaxed and completely at home in their school.  This environment is the single biggest reason why his children are so successful and happy.  He creates engaging and exciting lessons for them.

They genuinely don’t know what to expect most days, which is something they really like. He constantly tries new learning styles and methods of engaging his children.  Children and parents think incredibly highly of him.   He has helped the children in his class make exceptional progress academically.

The school’s philosophy is to make learning fun and at the same time to help the children to make outstanding academic progress and become ambitious young people.  Mr Parkhouse is a vital part of this and sets a standard for other teachers in school.
