Teaching & Learning

Teaching and learning is the key to the success of children at Park View Primary Academy. We aim to provide the children with an inclusive environment where everybody feels nurtured and valued and through opportunities and experiences we ignite curiosity, creativity and imagination.

Park View Primary Academy begins its learning journey in the Foundation Stage with a unique programme tailored to meet each child’s needs. In our Early Years Foundation Stage, children learn and develop in a stimulating environment where learning is led by the children’s interests. We encourage children to be independent in their learning and access the resources they need to extend their interests further. Staff support the children to explore their environment, problem solve independently and think critically and creatively. Our ‘we can...’ attitude helps develop children’s confidence to try new things and share ideas.

Throughout Years 1 to 6, teaching and learning is focused around the National Curriculum. Teachers work together to create interesting topics, which use novels and picture books to motivate and engage the children. These are then used to teach basic skills in a context and are linked across all the subjects. These topics are taught on a two year rolling programme and are carefully integrated to ensure there is a relationship between each subject. Our curriculum means that children are encouraged to think creatively, take responsibility for their learning and enhance their understanding through questioning. They are then able to assess their own and each other’s learning, which creates a deeper understanding.

Through our 3 school rules of being Proud, Productive and Positive we continue to develop children’s hopes and aspirations.

At Park View Primary Academy we nurture a joy of learning in a happy, purposeful atmosphere.
