The Bridge is please to announce we have achieved Rights Respecting Schools Gold Award!
The assessor said about her day at the Bridge:
The assessor would like to thank the children, the Senior Leadership Team, staff and governors for their warm welcome to the school, for the opportunity to speak with adults and children during the assessment and for the detailed evidence provided to support the process. Prior to the assessment visit, the school completed a comprehensive School Evaluation: Gold form.
It was evident that children’s rights are embedded across the school and underpin every facet of school life.
Particular strengths of the school include:
The commitment to use the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child (CRC) to underpin the school vision to ensure the voice of the child is heard in school development and to underpin each child's personal educational journey within the school environment.
The imaginative use of drama, art and creative writing to encourage young people to understand and debate their rights and what it means to them.
The strong sense of children being at the centre of the school with the staff supporting their individual needs.
