Venn Academy Trust was formed in 2015 as a result of a strong collaborative partnership between two headteachers representing four settings.
This unique partnership formed the Trust with Thorpepark Academy (2-11 year olds), Bridgeview Special School (5-11 year olds), Whitehouse Pupil Referral Unit (5-11 year olds), and Sullivan Medical Unit and the Hospital Classroom (7-16 year olds).
In September 2016 The Boulevard Centre and The Boulevard Nursery joined the Trust.
In the summer of 2017 Griffin Primary School (June 2017) and Mountbatten Primary School (July 2017) became members.
Latterly, in April 2019, two primary federated schools from Thorne, Doncaster joined Venn. These were Brooke Primary School and Marshland Primary School.
Venn is proud to deliver high quality extended services that include: home tuition for sick pupils, the behaviour outreach service and the hospital classroom at Hull Royal Infirmary.
From the beginning Venn has focused on upholding excellent teaching and learning for pupils who attend a Venn academy.
Core to the vision is the relentless focus on fostering pupil resilience and outstanding learning behaviour in mainstream and specialist teaching settings. Through this model pupils make exceptional progress, irrespective of starting points.
Venn and its schools are active participants in the Tidal Teaching School Alliance.
The research undertaken in Venn has secured success in developing behaviour management to create learning behaviour that has revolutionised teaching and the culture of its schools.
An outcome of this is the development of excellent professional development and research in Reading and Low-level Disruption.
Venn is recognised within the region and beyond for its provision, support and guidance for schools and educational institutions to successfully manage disruptive behaviour.
