Venn Boulevard Centre is an alternative provision with special school designation providing education for children from years 7 to 18. Over half of our pupils have an Education, Health and Care Plan.
We also meet the needs of children who have not been to school for several years, children with ACEs, young parents and neurodivergent pupils amongst many others.
At Venn Boulevard Centre, our curriculum is designed with the individual needs of each pupil in mind. We prioritise teaching the relevant knowledge and skills within the National Curriculum, while also allowing for personalisation and flexibility.
We understand the importance of a sequential approach to learning and work with families and professionals to ensure that the implementation of the curriculum is reflective of the needs of the pupil.
Baseline assessments on admission inform our teaching, allowing us to develop pupils’ understanding of key concepts by building knowledge and skills, and addressing any misconceptions or gaps in knowledge
