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!
A very fond farewell to all of our P.7 Leavers 2017!
The staff in Bridge would like to say a huge thank-you to all of our parents for your kind words, cards and gifts. We really appreciate your kindness and wish you and all of our amazing kids a fantastic summer!
Stay safe, have a wonderful break and we look forward to seeing you all at the end of August!

Film Club of the Year
Huge congratulations to Mr Scowcroft and his film club members who are the first film club in the UK to achieve Into Film Platinum Film Buff status. Film club members enjoyed watching a wide variety of movies throughout the year and wrote some excellent reviews to earn this award. They received their Platinum Film Buff award in the IMC Cinema today, where INto Film presented Mr Scowcroft with the award and club members received their Platinum Award certificates. Club members and P.6 enjoyed a free viewing of Diary of a Wimpy Kid; The Long Haul.
P.7 Nerf Wars
Primary 7 pupils are on a high as they celebrate their last days in Bridge Primary. Having just finished their amazing show Annie, enjoyed some fishing and today they enjoyed a lovely surprise with an energetic Nerf war party. Pupils had lots of fun and hopefully more special memories of great times with their friends will be remembered.
As P.7 approach their last day in school tomorrow 28th June they look forward to our annual awards ceremony and of course a fun afternoon with bouncy castles, ice-creams and a barbecue! Here's hoping they have an amazing last day in Bridge. Pupils have had a great time throughout their seven years in Bridge with lots of fun and laughter with friends and no doubt there will be tears tomorrow as we bid farewell to a wonderful set of amazing kids. Best of luck in your new schools P.7s - they will be very lucky to have you!
P.7 Dress Rehearsal of Annie
On Friday 16th June P.7 performed their dress rehearsal of Annie for the rest of the school community. To sum it up in one word it was AMAZING! The talent and the confidence of the pupils on stage was outstanding! As staff, we are so very proud of all of the pupils involved. It is heartwarming to see these children shine on stage as they celebrate their final term in Bridge and get ready for their transition to 'big' schools.
Parents are in for a real treat when they come to see the shows for the big performances on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd June.P.7 parents be prepared to feel very proud and bring tissues, just in case you need them!
P.7 you are all stars! Enjoy the limelight - you deserve it after all of your hard work!

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!
