Headteacher’s Message

rebeccaOn behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Worsley Bridge Primary School. Our website aims to give you not only an insight into our school community, but to also experience the happy atmosphere and sense of purpose evident in our school.

Our school is a large primary, set in very spacious grounds close to Beckenham Place Park. We provide a high quality education for all our pupils, enhanced by a caring and positive atmosphere in our school. We know that pupils learn more effectively if they feel valued, happy and secure. Our children work hard and we have high expectations and aspirations! We offer a broad and balanced curriculum which is further enhanced by having specialist Science, Music and Language teachers, as well as Forest School.

We also offer a wide range of enrichment activities before and after school. Because we place high expectations on our youngsters they develop into independent and responsible learners. We are proud that our children leave Worsley Bridge with a positive self-image and the motivation to achieve.

At Worsley Bridge we also believe that parents have a very important role to play in the education of their children and we actively encourage close co-operation between home and school. We value and build on the knowledge and experiences which the pupils bring from outside of their school life, and we hope that you will share with us in making your child’s time at Worsley Bridge Primary School enjoyable and successful.

In response to the demand for school places in Beckenham, the school is undergoing expansion from two forms of entry to three.  The future is exciting – our current high quality provision has been enhanced by a brand new building in Key Stage 1. Over the summer we saw the refurbishment of many areas in our Key Stage 2 building and the development of a new outdoor learning area for pupils in Reception, providing our children with the very best learning environment.

We would love you to come and visit to see for yourself all the wonderful things our school has to offer. We provide tours to interested parents, which you may book through the school office. The children of Worsley Bridge enjoy talking about our school and sharing their achievements and look forward to meeting you.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
