In our school grounds we have a small outdoor swimming pool, a large football field, an environmental area where we have a bird hide, three ponds, lots and lots of trees such as Sloe, Wych Elm, Holly etc
Last year a local organisation came, to the school to help us to clear the area to make it more attractive, we also have an adventure playground where we play.
Our swimming pool has recently been refurbished but we can only use it during the summer months.
We also have a tarmac area which we use as a netball court.
These two pictures are of our adventure playground.
In the playground we have monkey bars, a slide, fireman's pole etc.
The picture below is of our " new pond " in the Environmental area.
Bridestowe Community Primary School is in the centre of the village and has been providing education to the local community since the 1860s. We currently have a roll of 58 children aged between 4 and 11.
Set in spacious grounds, the school benefits from two tarmacked playgrounds, a level playing field, an adventure playground which was constructed with the help of parents in 1995, an outside swimming pool and a comprehensive environmental area with ponds, a path that meanders among indigenous trees and plants.
The teaching areas are accommodated in the original Victorian building, which is divided into two large teaching areas, one for 4-7 year olds and the other for 7-11 year olds, the former of which is supported by a wet play area. We have a dedicated library area, the refurbishment of which was funded by the Lord of Bridestowe Sanctuary, interior cloakrooms and toilets and a kitchen where school meals are prepared on site daily.
The old schoolmaster’s house accommodates our reception, office, small group room and a Home Economics Area. A temporary classroom to the rear of the school, is used by the local playgroup.
The school is well resourced and is constantly updating buildings and equipment to reflect the demands of modern education.
At Bridestowe the staff and governors strive to provide a secure, caring community in which every child will have the opportunity to achieve their full potential socially and academically regardless of ability, race, gender, culture, religion or social background.
