Aspirations for all – the power of purpose

At Pewsey Vale school we prioritise knowing our students as individuals and this involves understanding their dreams and ambitions.  Through the use of the Compass for Life programme students in all year groups are encouraged to identify their big dreams, goals and ambitions.  They are given opportunities to explore options for their futures with the aim to raise aspirations for all.  We use the compass as a model for then helping the students to develop the ethos and characteristics they will need, to plan their journey strategically and also helping them to develop physical and mental resilience strategies so they have the confidence to take action. This enables us to provide personalised guidance to help students achieve their full potential. 

Throughout the year in addition to PSHRE lessons covering these themes students will undertake, year group specific, drop down days such as the careers fair, take your child to work day and work place visits to provide further opportunities to explore ideas.

Year 11 students will also all have one to one guidance interviews to help them in decision making for next steps.
