At Bridge House Independent School, the mental wellbeing of all our children and staff is at the forefront of all we do when planning our curriculum content. Our intention is that when pupils leave Bridge House, they will do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active, positive and successful role in today’s diverse society. We want our pupils to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it. Our intention is that our students will follow a curriculum that enables them to excel and exceed as well as giving them the opportunities to explore the world around them locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
In an ever–changing world, it is important that they are aware, to an appropriate level, of different factors which will affect their world and that they learn how to deal with these so that they have good mental health and well-being.
The curriculum is intended to provide challenge, which is a precondition for learning to take place, and the opportunity to enable students to receive the necessary support they require to be successful throughout their lives. With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, we intend to provide, vocabulary rich, engaging and relevant lessons, promoting growth mindset.
