Caring, Learning, Succeeding

Vision and Values

Vision evening presentation 10.9.18.

Mission statement (created September 2018):

At Bridgetown Primary School our children, staff and families are a caring and dedicated team.  We work together to encourage, support and enthuse each other.  We respect and value diversity, creating an inclusive community.  By providing a safe, happy and nurturing environment, our children grow to become independent, resilient and imaginative learners.

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.
