Curriculum

Parkside House School aims to provide a broad based curriculum providing a meaningful learning experience delivered in a stimulating manner. Encouraging each young person to achieve their highest standard.

The curriculum is designed to encourage achievement for pupils who may not have experienced much educational success by providing individual programmes tailored to pupil's individual needs.

The curriculum aims to assess, monitor, reward, and acknowledge the pupils achievements thus allowing pupils to gain qualifications and experience as a route to further Education, college or job entry. The National Curriculum must be delivered so as to allow pupils to move proficiently from one Key Stage to another.

The curriculum is delivered by specialist subject teachers who regularly collaborate to plan and evaluate the teaching programmes. Our multi-faceted Curriculum is at the heart of concern for high quality teaching. At times in the year we collapse the curriculum to present enrichment activities including Enterprise Week, Money Week, Sports Week, Anti-Bullying, & E-Safety weeks as well as Global Citizenship.

If you require further of more detailed information  regarding the curriculum please contact Jackie Burton.
