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. Seven years later and we now have 332 children across all year groups, a nursery of 48 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.
We have been very lucky this term as we had a special visitor, Mrs Bridget Sparks from ASDA. Mrs Sparks spent an amazing afternoon with the children showing us how to plant and care for our herbs. We hope this will encourage us to have ‘green fingers’ and our plants keep growing beautifully, so we can taste them soon. Here, we are taking turns

Dartford Football Club
On Saturday, a group of our talented footballers went on an trip to the local football club, Dartford FC! It was a brilliant day with perfect weather to let us play Football Golf (where you must kick the ball down the green and in to the hole), practice headers, passing and shooting with the amazing coaching team there and, to top it all off,
