The Curriculum delivered in New-Bridge Integrated College centres on the development and progression of skills and knowledge as well as the values and attitudes of our learners. Outstanding Learning is at the heart of our delivery and this informs the planning and practice of all lessons in New-Bridge Integrated College

Curriculum Aims:

  • To provide a wide variety of learning experiences in which our students can connect their learning and in doing so, experience a more relevant, coherent and engaging curriculum;  
  • To develop our students’ thinking skills and personal capabilities through a wide range of classroom based and enrichment activities which challenge, motivate and engage; 
  • To improve our students’ skills and performance in Numeracy, Literacy and ICT across the curriculum;  
  • To develop a ‘Growth Mindset’ model of assessment practice which engineers success through links to achievement, attitude, effort and home learning and acknowledges that although learners may not all succeed at the same point, with structured supportive strategies, they can improve and develop as self-reliant and resilient learners. We are persistent in this and believe that students can and will do better with specific subject supportive mechanisms in place and provision of positive and meaningful feedback;  
  • To strive to develop positive relationships in our classrooms as evidenced in our strong focus on behaviour for learning ;  
  • To take risks for learning in our classrooms (teacher and pupil) and know through our aspiration and vision that the learner of the future must be flexible, adaptive and collaborative and  
  • To encourage self-belief in our learners through our optimistic and enthusiastic approach to their progress.
