Curriculum

Park View School Vision

To provide our students with the confidence, skills and knowledge to make informed decisions about their future

Curriculum Intent
Our curriculum is designed to give our pupils a broad range of learning opportunities that gives them access to academic, vocational, cultural and experiential learning opportunities. Subject matter is presented to all pupils at a level appropriate to their own ability and is aimed to further develop their understanding and allow them to progress further.
All learners will have access to a range of nationally recognised qualifications that they can access at various stages of their secondary education and matches their level of academic ability and prepares learners for future success in the next stages of education.
The curriculum is not only designed to ensure learners are academically prepared for the next stage of their lives but to instill within them morals, values and a broader understanding of their cultural environment and their place within it.
The curriculum is designed to ensure pupils are prepared for adulthood, with this in mind all pupils in key stage 3 engage in personal development activities each week and Key stage 4 pupils can access work placements with local employers. To support preparation for the work place pupils can access our vocational training centre where they can study welding and engineering, motor vehicle maintenance and construction skills.

SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural)

Park View School places RE and SMSC high on the agenda. We feel it is paramount to the development of well-rounded individuals. We deliver a comprehensive programme of SMSC that encompasses a broad and balanced RE curriculum promoting fundamental British Values. This compliments our ethos to grow stronger together. Students are explicitly taught topics in RE and SMSC sessions which are supported and embedded by effective relationships throughout the school. At Park View we nurture students in a respectful safe environment to develop the resilience and tolerance required to lead successful lives in modern democratic Britain.
Under new guidance it is the role of schools to:
• Ensure that children and young people not only achieve high standards, but are well prepared to live and prosper in modern Britain.
• Deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that promotes the values of wider British society.
• Provides pupils with a broad general knowledge of public institutions and services in England.
• Assists pupils to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and other cultures in a way that promotes tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions.
• Encourages pupils to respect the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
