For our learners to be empowered, aspirational and resilient, and to develop a range of independent and employable skills. Our bespoke five-year curriculum consists of a three-year key stage 3 and aims to naturally cultivate individuals who will foster a love of learning and have the desire to achieve. It is broad, balanced and will develop and improve both subject specific and transferable skills that are essential for life-long learning. It will assist the growth of the individual learner enabling them to make sustained progress in all subject areas that sufficiently allows them to reach their full potential. The learning climate will maintain a positive and encouraging environment supporting all students to consistently strive to do their best and achieve their end-goals.
Key stage 3 covers Year 7 through to Year 9, and all students study the core and foundation subjects. Students choose their options for key stage 4 in Year 9, ready to start them in the September of Year 10 through until they leave the school in Year 11.
All students study the same curriculum apart from a small group in key stage 3 where through study support, there is an increased focus on core skills. We are committed to ensuring equality of access to the complete curriculum for all students, through the effective allocation of resources to remove any barriers to learning. Schemes of learning are sequenced to allow steps to be taken to develop and embed knowledge. These sequences of work are further detailed in session plans that are supported by Pupil Profiles for individual SEND students. We are committed to an ethos of inclusion where expectations are high for all students.
As well as our standard operating procedures (meet and greet, do now activity, sharing of learning objectives, boy/girl seating, countdown, silent dismissal), the below are our key aspects of pedagogy when implementing our curriculum. These are our whole school expectations for lessons each day.
The vast majority of students complete a full programme of study, with the average number of GCSEs studied at 8. Our Progress and Attainment 8 scores show an upward trajectory since our 2017/2018 cohort, with both our 2018/2019 and 2021/2022 achieving well. Through our dedication to ensuring all students learn in a positive and conducive environment, we are confident that students will continue to leave Perryfields with a strong set of outcomes and the confidence and resilience to face our ever-changing world.
Personal Social & Health Education (PSHE) is taught, not only in PDM sessions but is embedded into our curriculum; it helps produce confident individuals who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives.
Our programme of study for PSHE ensures students are offered opportunities integral to their learning and enhance their engagement with the concepts, processes and content of the subject. We feel this underpins the ethos of Perryfields.
Our aims through PSHE are that students:
At Perryfields High school, we are passionate about supporting students through the process of deciding the direction they take after finishing school. We are committed to providing a robust careers programme across both key stages that prepares our young people for a successful transition into adulthood.
With the help of Connexions, we provide impartial guidance and advice on further education, training, or employment.
Across both KS3 and KS4 students have the opportunity to learn about different career paths, not just within PDM but also across lessons with the help of many outside agencies such as employers and education providers.
