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. Three years later and we now have 220 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 first OFSTED we were judged as having an outstanding partnership with parents/carers. This relationship has been key to our success.
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!

Kingswood – Day 4
Day 4 and still having fun! The rain subsided while the children tested their brains in team riddle challenges indoors, leaving the rest of the day sunny if a little bit breezy. The competitive streak came out as they were determined to beat the opposition. Then it was time to get messy (particularly as Mr C was involved!). Dressed for the elements in waterproofs
Kingswood – Day 3
What another great day and no rain! It was a bit tricky getting the children out of bed this morning due to all of the fresh air yesterday. It was the imminent room check from Mr C that persuaded them that it was time to be up, showered and ready for the fun day ahead. After breakfast certificates and crème eggs were given to
