A solid curriculum forms the foundation of academic success and our syllabus is designed to be responsive to individual students, local needs and national priorities.
Mastery Learning is a specific approach to teaching and is at the heart of the curriculum at Bridgnorth Endowed School. It sees subjects broken down into discrete units and students being required to achieve a set level of ‘mastery’ for each unit before moving onto the next.
Some students may need more time and extra support to complete the unit, but the aim is that all will get there in the end.
This method focuses on the time needed for different students to learn the same material and achieve the same level of mastery, which ensures that each student receives the appropriate degree of stretch and support.
Students are able to feel success through their individual progress, with the aim of motivating them and challenging any negative perceptions they may have about their abilities.
