At Venn Boulevard Centre, we understand that every pupil comes to us with their own unique educational journey, including those with special needs, adverse childhood experiences, and social, emotional and mental health needs. As a result, we are committed to providing a positive and stabilising setting that bridges to continued education, whether that be to another mainstream school or a specialist setting.
Our curriculum is designed to be flexible and personalised, enabling pupils to progress to the next stage of their educational journey. Our aim is to provide a curriculum that allows each child to shine, nurturing their individual talents and raising aspirations.
We believe that all pupils have the entitlement to be educated in line with Article 28 of the UN Convention on the rights of a child. Our curriculum is designed to re-engage all students as learners, enhance their self-perception as learners, and inspire and motivate them to foster a curiosity to learn.
We place a strong focus on developing pupils’ social development, emotional wellbeing and mental health, with a strong curriculum focus on the facilitating subjects of reading, English and mathematics. In addition, pupils are encouraged to explore subjects beyond the core curriculum and to lead healthy and safe lifestyles.
At Venn Boulevard Centre, we understand the importance of transition in children’s lives, and our pedagogy is underpinned by a deep understanding of attachment theory and child development. We believe that relationships are key, and all behaviour is communication.
Our PSHE curriculum and embedded British Values & SMSC ensure that we fulfill all our statutory obligations under equality legislation. We are committed to providing a nurturing and supportive environment that enables our pupils to thrive.
pupils’ emotional well-being deeply and give them space when they need to refocus.”
