School Description

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.
