It takes a village to raise a child
Our school is a specialist setting for 315 pupils with complex needs. We are a learning community of three villages for children aged 3 to 19.
The Village School caters to those with special educational needs and/or disabilities. All pupils have an education, health and care plan. Most pupils have severe or profound needs. Many have additional needs, such as medical conditions or are on the autistic spectrum. Pupils come from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds, cultures and faiths, reflecting the local community. The proportion of pupils who are supported through the pupil premium is above average.
Six classes are based at the neighbouring Kingsbury High School and three at the nearby Hope Centre.
We believe in a transdisciplinary approach to supporting learners, an exciting curriculum emphasising developing communication skills and independence, a focus on the Arts, physical development and enrichment opportunities, with a clear focus on preparation for adult life. This provides excellent opportunities for our learners to be included and contribute to the wider community.
We aim to develop personalised pathways for our pupils so that their needs and aspirations can be met.
