Interactive Base (KS3/ KS4)


Curriculum Vision


The Interactive Provision provides an appropriate learning environment for students whose main barrier to learning is Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD), Complex Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (CLDD), Autism, Sensory processing disorder and/or challenging behaviours.


The intent of the Interactive Provision is to provide an engaging, fun, stimulating and sensory curriculum that is flexible to the needs of each and which both reflects their EHCP outcomes and supports their wellbeing.

The students in the Interactive Provision are divided into two pathways, Pathway 1 and Pathway 2.

Pathway 1 students are provided with a more enhanced sensory curriculum and Pathway 2 students are provided with a more enhanced communication curriculum.

The curriculum is built around meeting the holistic needs of each individual student based on their EHCP outcomes in the four areas of SEND; Cognition and Learning, Communication, Sensory and Physical and SEMH. Students are stretched and challenged to ensure they achieve their potential.

Communication is placed at the core of our curriculum in allowing students to express themselves in their life beyond Newbridge and to have an active part in contributing to their future. Integral to this aim is the development of independence, resilience and life skills.

The Interactive provision recognises each student has their own preferred way of learning. Staff recognise that not all students will follow a typical development trajectory therefore the curriculum provides a framework which is fit for purpose for each individual student.


Interactive Base at New Bridge School 


An IB class offers a provision for students which provides routine, consistent specialist staffing and encourages independence and communication.

The students benefit from a structured, total communication environment with consistent staffing and routines. 

Throughout each day staff facilitate opportunities for standing, walking and seating changes following their individual mobility plans.

Sensory movement breaks are offered to promote physical well-being and to aid sensory regulation.

This helps to keep students engaged, motivated, regulated and ready to learn.
