Welcome to the website of Bridge Integrated Primary School. We hope you enjoy this visit and that it will give you a brief insight of our busy and vibrant school.
Bridge Integrated Primary School opened its doors in September 1987 with only 75 pupils. Today the school has over 400 pupils who come from a wide range of backgrounds, creeds and abilities. Bridge IPS is a child-centred school, where the individual needs of pupils are met in an environment that is caring, positive and motivating. We promote an ethos of respect and positive behaviour in order to allow everyone to achieve their fullest potential. At Bridge IPS we value the support and co-operation of our parents. I hope that you enjoy browsing our website – we have certainly enjoyed creating it!

Bridge Takes Part in the Big Pedal
Well done to all those children and parents who have made a real effort to travel to school on bikes, scooters and by walking.
Click THE BIG PEDAL to see photos of the event and ways you can continue to travel to school more actively during the third term.
During the first week in May sixteen Primary six pupils have been selected to participate in three half day cycling workshops with Dave from Sustrans. This is an excellent opportunity for pupils to learn how to ride their bikes safely on the roads. Thanks to Dave, who came in and carried out 'health checks' on pupils' bikes to ensure they are road worthy.
Parents and Pupils: Many thanks for your continued support with Active Travel this year. We still have some more activities lined up, for example, Walk to School Week, 18th-22nd May 2015, and the Keep Safe Poster Competition.
