The New Bridge Academy is an average-sized secondary special school. It provides education for pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. The majority of pupils have additional special educational needs and/or disabilities. The majority of pupils have an education, health and care plan. In 2015, Springwell Dene and Castlegreen joined the Ascent Trust and amalgamated to become The New Bridge Academy. The school has not had a previous inspection. The school is in the process of re-brokerage to another trust. The acting headteacher is a senior leader of Trinity Academy Trust, proposed as the new trust for the school. There is a school-to-school support agreement between the two trusts. Most pupils join the school following a referral from the local authority. They join at times other than usual transition from Year 6. Many have started their secondary education in other schools. Many arrive at school in Years 9 and 10 and have had significant disruption in their education prior to their arrival at The New Bridge Inspection report: The New Bridge Academy, 13–14 June 2018 Page 8 of 11 Academy. A small number of pupils are on shared placements with the pupil referral unit while undergoing statutory assessment to attend the school. Three quarters of the pupils are known to be entitled to pupil premium funding. This is much higher than the proportion found nationally. Most pupils are White British. No pupils speak English as an additional language.
Trinity Academy New Bridge Parent Reviews
Average Parent Rating
“Very badly run school”
10 October 2022AUTHOR: Y8 parent/carer
I am a parent/Carer of a child that attended that I subsequently removed from this school.
This school is inadequate in every aspect in my opinion.
There is no structure, and pupils are running around in full view of staff who appear to have little to no control over the situation.
Children as young as 11 with a EHCP can walk off the premises at any time in an area they not familiar with as most get taxis from all around city of Sunderland to attend this school, all the children need to do is press a button at the gate and exit the premises without having to ask to leave.
Communication between home and school is none existent, you have to rely on the child to let you know of problems they are having in school.
If you have a fussy eater, expect them to come home hungry every day as they do not cater for all needs at dinner time.
2015 GCSE RESULTSImportant information for parents
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
