At Park View Academy we believe that every child should have an opportunity to experience success with their education no matter what their background or special needs…
Welcome to Park View Academy
We recognise that our learners may need additional support before they are ready to fully engage in the curriculum. Therefore, we typically follow a progressive step by step approach as summarised in the mnemonic; ARRRTT
- Attendance: Focus on improving each learner’s attendance level to ensure they give themselves the basis to achieve.
- Routine: Learning Support Assistants help learners to gain a routine that is adapted to pupils individual needs to ensure they feel comfortable in the educational environment.
- Relationship: Learners are assisted in developing sound relationships with tutors and other service users.
- Respect: Working with learners and families in a holistic manner to maximize their life-chances and educational potential.
- Trust: When a pupil feels more secure and understood.
- Teach: A formal, academic curriculum takes place.
Parkview Academy takes the Health and well being of all our pupils very seriously, therefore we increase awareness and knowledge of health and well being through PHSE and PSD lessons as well as working alongside the following organisations:
Parkview Academy a Healthy School
Parkview Academy has been on a journey to demonstrate we are committed to creating a positive environment which supports physical and emotional health and wellbeing. We are proud to announce that we have achieved the Healthy Schools Award that recognises the efforts made to ensure our school community strives in achieving positive well-being for our students. To achieve this, we had to review our practise in promoting and improving our student’s health and wellbeing. We want to share with you the ways in which we do this at Parkview Academy.
PSHE: Effective planning and delivery of PSHE has been a focus of our Healthy School’s journey. PSHE education is central to helping pupils to stay healthy and safe, and to equip them with the personal and social skills to negotiate life’s challenges, opportunities and risks. We offer a broad range of PSHE within our curriculum including qualifications in Personal and Social Development, Well-Being and Employability Skills
Healthy Eating: Our school meals are freshly prepared onsite by our chef ‘Pam’. Pam is passionate about preparing fresh, healthy meals which taste great, and encourages our students to try a variety of foods from different cultures. This helps us to ensure our students are having a balanced diet which has proven to increase their ability to concentrate and learn. And of course, for those students who bring pack lunches, Pam offers guidance on how to prepare healthy meals and snacks at home.
Physical Activity: We provide all children with a minimum of 2 hours PE (including dance, games and gymnastics) every week, as well as opportunities to complete sensory circuits, outdoor pursuits, and after school clubs. Becoming a Health School has confirmed that we ensure every child has an equal opportunity to take part in PE and Sport at a level appropriate to their development.
Social, Emotional, and Mental Healthy (SEMH): SEMH forms an integral part of our curriculum. All our students have SEMH targets which are reviewed termly, and pupil achievements are rewarded individually or as a class. Our ‘Student of the School’ is presented during Assembles with parents and carers invited to celebrate success.
