Vision and Values

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

We believe the strength and character of our successful school lies in its ability to create an inclusive learning environment enriched by working with the wider community in the arts, technologies, humanities and sciences to offer the pupils experiences beyond these normally associated with a primary school.

Our Vision for Bridgetown

Our vision tells people what we are working to achieve.


Vision: Bridgetown will be an outstanding school and a local and national centre of excellence for learning.

We will know we have achieved the vision when:

  • Our teaching and leadership expertise is externally recognised and used effectively to support the professional development of others within and beyond the school.
  • Every child makes significantly more progress in their time at Bridgetown than national expectations.
  • Every child feels safe in school and knows how to keep him or herself safe and healthy.
  • Every child is well prepared socially, emotionally, culturally and academically for the next stage in their education.

Bridgetown Values

Our values tell people who we are and what we believe in. They determine the culture and ethos of our school.

At Bridgetown we value:



Lifelong Learning



The Value of every individual



Every child at Bridgetown will be encouraged to demonstrate:

  • Bravery to try new things, to take risks and to go beyond expectations.

  • Enjoyment: within an inspiring learning environment and Stratford’s rich cultural heritage, we enjoy an exciting and relevant curriculum, which encourages independent and creative thinking.

  • Lifelong learning: creating effective learners with the self-belief, skills, adaptability and passion for learning which will enable them to thrive physically and emotionally in an unknown future.

  • Innovation: aspiring to be ahead of the game, providing staff with high quality training and professional development opportunities to enable them to employ the most effective and innovative teaching methods, based on sound research.
  • Excellence: creating a culture where we strive for and achieve excellence in all that we do celebrating each small step along the way.

  • Value: an inclusive community, in which all members feel valued, challenged, supported and safe.

  • Experiences: providing exciting and diverse opportunities and experiences, which reveal possibilities, inspire a life-long love of learning and enable every child, regardless of their economic, social or cultural background, to be the best they can be.


At Bridgetown we believe in ourselves and in each other!
