Welcome to Bridgewater Primary School
We are a warm and welcoming, inclusive school at the heart of a vibrant community. We strive to provide inspirational learning and teaching so that every child can achieve their best.
In partnership with our parents and the community, we aim to develop children who are passionate about learning and conduct themselves responsibly in the world.

What Makes Us Unique
Our ethos is one of inclusion where every member of the community is valued and can be successful.
Nurture is at the heart of our school where support is in place and deployed sensitively, to enable everyone to feel safe, enabling them to learn
The school strives for a well-planned, vibrant and research based curriculum which builds rich schemas of knowledge and a passion for learning. We aim to teach greater breadth and depth to enrich learning and lay strong foundations for the development of future concepts. You will find that our curriculum and ethos is reflected in our bright engaging environment.
Developing a growth mindset is key to the children’s resilience and ability to understand where they are in their learning and what their next steps are
The word ‘challenge’ is integral to our approach and attitude. This sits well alongside our positivity and ability to empathise with others.
We scaffold learning in mixed ability, fluid groups with a mastery approach. This ensures no child’s learning is capped and opportunities for development remain open to all.
We are a three form entry school with our own Nursery and Out of School provision. Our children look forward to twinning with a different year group class and it’s lovely to see older and younger children engaged together throughout the school, whether this be through sharing books and developing reading skills together, supporting each other on the playground or cheering encouragement for each other on sports days.
We benefit from having extensive grounds and a dedicated Forest School area along with an established pond area with dipping platforms. The children in our School Council have raised funds most recently to enrich the outdoor environment by providing an extra outdoor classroom.
Our strong partnership with parents and the local community is key to the children’s wellbeing and success in school. We strive to work closely with parents at all times and have an active Friends Association.
You will find the Bridgewater values of Respect, Responsilbilty and Resilence threaded through our curriculum and our school.
