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 differentiate through challenge in mixed ability, fluid groups which ensures no child’s learning is capped, and the result is quite the opposite as it opens them up to new opportunities.
Our community feel strengthened as we grew in numbers allowing teams to be built within teams across the school. 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 have engaged with the European Community by securing Erasmus funding for several years, which has provided inspiring experiences for staff in Europe, which they embed back at school such as, learning about the creative processes in Bologna.
Our strong partnership with parents 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.
