School Description

Park View Academy is one of three schools in the ALP schools group. All pupils have education, health and care plans. Most pupils have autism spectrum disorder and/or social, emotional and mental health needs. Pupils are placed in the school from a range of local authorities. At the time of this inspection, pupils on roll were aged between eight and 19. The school does not operate a separate sixth-form provision. For the purposes of this inspection report, the provision for students between the ages of 16 and 19 is incorporated into each part of the report. The school’s previous full standard inspection took place in March 2017, when it was Inspection report: Park View Academy, 30 April–2 May 2019 Page 9 of 12 judged to require improvement. In June 2018, a material change inspection took place. At that time, the inspector judged that the school was likely to meet all the independent school standards if the material change was implemented. Some pupils attend another of the ALP schools, Pier View Academy, East Crescent Road, Gravesend, Kent DA12 2A as part of their courses in construction. Additional off-site sports and enrichment activities take place at the following locations: – sports activities and physical education at Crook Log Leisure Centre, Bexleyheath DA7 4HH – swimming and sports activities at Allhallows Leisure Park, Rochester ME3 9QD.
