The Chestnut Centre

Curriculum Intent

The students who attend the Mayfield Chestnut Centre exhibit a wide range of both social, emotional and mental health and educational needs, which by their nature can impinge upon their progress. We work on trauma informed principles The school provides a flexible curriculum that addresses all areas of the individual student’s needs.

The main aim of the centre is to support children to become:

  • Confident Individuals
  • Successful Learners
  • Responsible Citizens

Where possible this results in children returning to a mainstream provision or us supporting them into a specialist provision that can meet their needs.

Staff are trained to use the PACE approach supported by Thrive activities alongside a carefully tailored individual Education Provision Plan, we offer pastoral care to the children and their families. We cover the requirements of the National Curriculum, providing a stimulating, broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum, which meets pupil’s individual needs
