Covid-19 Update: Following the Prime Minister's announcement on the 31st October, all education settings remain open to pupils. Pupils are expected to attend school as normal unless they are required to self-isolate.

As of Monday 9th November, pupils and staff are required to wear face coverings in corridors and other communal areas. Some staff and pupils may be exempt from this guidance.

Visitors and parents/carers are required to wear face coverings on entering the building. We request that all visits to the centre are by appointment only.

Our Ethos

We provide a safe and caring environment, which effectively removes barriers to learning and engagement through respect and resilience.

Our aim is to raise aspirations and achievement for every child


About The Key:

The Key Education Centre offers education for children who are temporarily unable to attend school because of the following reasons:

• they have been permanently excluded from school

• they are at risk of being permanently excluded from school

• they are unable to access school because they are emotionally vulnerable

• they are unable to access school because they are facing an absence of 15+ continuous school days due to ill health.

All referrals to The Key Education Centre are made by Headteachers

Our Values

At The Key Education Centre, we have decided to focus particularly on embedding the following three values throughout our practice. We encourage our pupils to incorporate these values in their everyday lives.

Respect Resilience Aspiration


The Key was last inspected in February 2018 and was graded 'Good' by inspectors.
