Thrive setting embraced digitalPark House offers an alternative setting and provision for young people for whom the school has not worked. Our school and our practice are based on ‘Thrive’ principles, giving young people every chance to re-engage and succeed.

Mission Statement and Ethos

Our vision is to develop well rounded, confident and responsible individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential. We will do this by providing a welcoming, happy, safe, and supportive learning environment in which everyone is equal, and all achievements are celebrated.

We believe that a happy child is a successful one. We are committed to providing a positive, safe and stimulating environment for children to learn, where all are valued. We intend that all children should enjoy their learning, achieve their potential and become independent life-long learners.

Our Vision is to create and deliver a safe and high-quality educational experience for every student, by:

  • Valuing every student as an individual, ensuring they realise their potential by providing an aspirational and engaging curriculum.
  • Ensuring no matter what the starting point, they can achieve
  • Delivering the highest standards of teaching and learning to ensure excellent progress and achievement that inspires all our students.
  • Providing a learning environment which is both stimulating, supportive, fosters excellence and independence.

“Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the quality of education and care their children receive at Park House.”  – Ofsted 2018

Assessment

Park House has a holistic approach where our young people are truly at the centre of their provision. We design bespoke packages that are flexible to respond, as the young person changes and develops.

All our programmes are delivered by qualified and experienced teachers alongside Specialist Higher-Level Teaching Assistants. We work with our young people to help boost their confidence and self-esteem, and address barriers to learning and success. We enable them to identify who they are, where they want to be and to see a pathway to achieve success.

We carry out the academic assessment alongside emotional profiling to ensure that each programme is meeting the needs of each student in our care. Pupils have access to a full curriculum, alongside achieving the academic qualifications identified in their plan.

Next Steps

There is also a very sharp focus on the next steps. A combination of targeted work and relevant qualifications, advice and guidance, college placements, work experience and volunteering not only develops a sense of self and belonging; it sparks powerful aspirations within our pupils for their future, and what they can achieve.
