Welcome to Our School
The Dartford Bridge School opened 9th September 2009 (09.09.09!). On that day we began with thirty-nine children, three teachers, three teaching assistants, a nursery nurse and admin staff. Over eight years later and we now have 364 children across all year groups, a nursery of 52 children and many more teachers and teaching assistants. And we continue to grow.
‘Asking, Aspiring, Achieving’.
Our school motto describes our commitment to an active, inspiring and engaging learning environment on which all learning is planned and delivered. Children are encouraged to become independent learners, problem solvers, good communicators and a team player. Encouraging children to ask questions and being given the tools to find out supports the active learning we promote. In our most recent OFSTED inspection (March 2014) we were given judgements of good in all areas of inspection with safety of children being outstanding. We are located on The Bridge Learning and Community Campus, sharing our site with other Kent Agencies. We see ourselves as part of the local community and we strive to make local and international links to support both learning and citizenship at our school.
Beauty and the Beast
This past week has been quite a busy one for our Year 6 children! A total of four performances of their 2018 production of Beauty and the Beast Jr saw a technical rehearsal on Monday, a dress rehearsal on Wednesday and their two main shows on Thursday and Friday. So much hard work has gone in to the show. From finding out what show
Year 3 Recorder students recently spent an afternoon participating in the Dartford Recorder Festival at Mick Jagger Center. Children from six schools (West Hill, Holy Trinity, The Gateway, Wentworth and Maypole) met to play music from notes they have learnt before and some that was improvised at the theatre. Each school played a tune they have learnt. DBCPS played theirs beautifully you can here
With all the great weather recently we thought it would be nice to capture some moments from playtime. These brilliant photos were taken by one of our Year 6 boys, Romarni. Some great shots and captures the fun and games the children have during break times. As the weather gets warmer please remember your hats and to put on suncream. What’s your favourite thing
