Curriculum Intent

Peacehaven Community School is proud to offer the innovative Elevate programme, specifically designed to provide a supportive and nurturing environment for students who have faced challenges within mainstream education. By utilising our school's core values, Aspire, Believe, Contribute, and Achieve, Elevate empowers these young individuals to develop academically, socially, and emotionally, ensuring a successful and rapid reintegration into mainstream education.

Aspire: Elevate raises the aspirations of all learners by providing them with tailored support plans, designed to meet their unique needs and potential. By fostering an environment of high expectations, students are encouraged to believe in their capabilities, aspire to their personal best, and prepare for a bright future in a rapidly changing world.

Believe: Central to Elevate is the belief in every student's potential to succeed. Through a combination of therapeutic thinking, ELSA, counselling, and ESBAS support, we create an environment that values mutual respect and exemplary behaviour, enabling our students to build resilience and embrace inclusivity, fostering the confidence to believe in themselves and their ability to thrive.

Contribute: Elevate not only focuses on academic success but also fosters a sense of social responsibility and active contribution to society. Through engaging extracurricular activities and our rich programme of trips and visits at PCS, students are inspired to become responsible global citizens, making a positive impact on the world around them.

Achieve: The transformative power of Elevate lies in short, intensive bespoke interventions. By equipping students with the skills to make better life choices, and providing an enriching learning experience tailored to individual needs, abilities, and interests, Elevate sets the foundation for students to achieve excellence and make excellent progress in their educational journey.
