At The Key Education Centre, we are committed to ensuring that our provision enables pupils to learn the skills that they will need in order to thrive and not just survive. Pupils’ personal development is underpinned by our school values of ‘Respect, Resilience and Aspiration’.
We are passionate about promoting self-efficacy in our young people and supporting them to understand how the development and workings of their brain can impact their responses to a range of different situations. At the core of our work we seek to develop emotional literacy, empathy and self-regulation skills in our pupils. Only when pupils are able to reflect effectively can they accept responsibility for their mistakes and learn how to take positive ownership of their life choices. These self-regulation skills are also fundamental to their ability to access learning.
