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!

We are encouraging pupils to go on the C2K NewsDesk both in school and at home to read a wide variety of interesting up-to-date news articles and reports written by pupils in School reporter (Current P.6 have reports published at the moment and would love for you to read them). All of the reports are written for children and podcasts read the reports to them enabling children of all reading abilities to access them.
Children can add comments of their own and even submit their own reports for a wider audience to read! Remember to stay safe online and act responsibly by only posting suitable comments. Get an adult to help by checking your comment before you post it!
Give it a try! Pupils can access this at home as well and simply have to use their C2k user name and password. https://www.c2kschools.net/
