This is our first time contributing to the Seaside News. We would like to share the many events happening here at The Bridge. Our school is an Alternative Provision which provides education for children who struggle attending mainstream school.
This term, we have been focusing on being a Rights Respecting School (RRS). We are currently working towards the Silver Award. In April, we are expecting a visit from the Children’s Commissioner for Wales (Sally Holland), she is going to be talking about her role of working with young people. Some of our year 11s recently joined in a webinar organised by Sally where they discussed the many issues around Islamophobia.
A short while ago, we were nominated for the green token appeal in Asda. Thanks to the generosity of the local community we received the most tokens and were awarded £500. The money is being used to renovate our common rooms.
We would also like to mention our year 11 pupils who are currently working hard and revising for their GCSE exams. We wish them all the best of luck.
