A home / school / community partnership with open communication is essential in providing each student the support needed to be successful.


All students must be understood, encouraged and supported to exceed their expectations. We employ a range of strategies, whether they are academic, pastoral or therapeutic, to ensure all students achieve.


Meeting the needs of students in our community. Outstanding teaching and support, high quality advice and support are the foundations to positive outcomes.


The safety, education and welfare of our students and our staff are our priorities and this must be reflected in our thoughts, actions and environments.

Welcome to our website. We hope that what you see and read will give you some insight into what makes Park View a happy school and one that is always looking to improve and move forward. Park View School is a small local authority special school, with a focus on providing a service for learners with an SEMH Education Health Care Plan between key stages 3 and 4. At Park View, we aim to provide our children with a safe, secure environment in which they can take risks with their learning. Every day, they are supported in developing skills and attitudes which help them to develop in confidence and independence. When children leave us, we want them to have a love of learning which will stay with them throughout life. Enjoyment, challenge and activity are at the heart of successful learning and we endeavour to achieve this through a broad and balanced curriculum which allows children to reach their potential. We want our children to be the very best they can be! This Web space will provide you with important information about Park View and will help you make the vital decision about what is best for your child’s secondary education. Should you wish to discuss matters further please do not hesitate to contact school. Together we grow stronger!

All of the staff play their part, the pupils education and welfare is of paramount importance and the main focus. The governors are dedicated and are fully behind and support the school in the direction in which we are going. They are very proactive and involved.
