Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Bridlewood! We are proud of our school, which has 270 wonderful children and a good number of fantastic educators too! High standards are important here, but so is educating the whole child. We aim to shape, guide, encourage and develop whole human beings who like themselves, like others and are liked by others. We have a family ethos encouraged by strategies like our buddies scheme, which means that every child in reception learns once a week with their year six buddy. In celebration assembly on a Friday we sing happy birthday to all the children who have had birthdays since we last met. All the children know all the other children.

If this sounds like the kind of place for your children then come and see us!

For those involved in running a support group for families who have a child with special needs

• Have you been thinking of starting a support group?
• Are you currently running an established group?
• Do you need to attract new members and link up with other group leaders to buddy up, share experiences, ideas and issues?

If so, this workshop is for you!

Nut Allergy

In Bridlewood we have always had a nut free school because we have a small number of children who are highly allergic to nuts. Recently some children have brought nuts in their packed lunches. We would be very grateful if you could leave out nuts or peanut butter in sandwiches as even proximity to nuts could trigger anaphylactic shock for some of our children.

January Housepoints

Lizards came first this week with 276 points and are the overall winners for the month. Well Done!
