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. Four years later and we now have 267 children across all year groups, a nursery of 42 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.

I am very lucky to be headteacher at DBCPS. It is the best job in the world!

Visually gorgeous and hugely funny, the effervescent, comedy drama opens in 1927, with screen idol George Valentin riding high in Hollywood before the dawn of the ‘talkies’. Rich and ultra-famous, he feels invincible, making
