Curriculum

During the five years that students spend at the Bassingbourn Village College, we aim to provide a programme of study that builds upon the work undertaken in primary schools. We also endeavour to…

  • Promote a broad and balanced curriculum for all students.
  • Provide a relevant curriculum for individual student needs.
  • Promote development in all curricular areas of the learning experience, and aspire towards excellence and student endeavour.
  • Give opportunities for each student to develop individual interests and talents.
  • Enable all students to make informed and sensible choices.
  • Develop the student as a member of the community and as a future adult in society, with a range of personal and social opportunities and responsibilities.

Our Curriculum Policy can be found on our Policies page.

Letter to parents re curriculum change – letter from the Principal 2nd February 2018

 

As part of our commitment to informing our pupils of the full range of learning and training pathways on offer to them, we are happy to consider requests from training, apprenticeship and vocational education providers to speak to students.  Bassingbourn Village College also seeks to build relationships with these partners as we plan our careers information, advice and guidance programme throughout the school year to ensure that providers have a range of opportunities to speak to pupils and their parents across years 7-11, to offer information on vocational, technical and apprenticeship qualifications and pathways.  Bassingbourn Village College ensures that academy staff involved in personnel guidance and pastoral support are up to date on their knowledge of these post 16 and post 18 pathways, through a programme of Continuing Professional Development. Opportunities for providers to speak with pupils may include employer and provider engagement events and/or opportunities to speak with students and parents on a one-to-one basis supporting GCSE, post 16 or post 18 option choices. The careers programme is monitored for quality and impact by the Senior Leadership and Governance Teams and monitoring of access to and opportunities to engage with technical, vocational and training providers will form part of this process.

In the first instance, requests by providers should be directed to the Transition Co-Ordinator.  All requests will be considered on the basis of: staffing availability to support the activity, clashes with other planned activity, trips or visits to the school, interruption to preparation for examinations or rooming and space availability to host the activity.
