Welcome to
Bridgeview Special School

Specialising in teaching children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties.

We are an outstanding school for primary school aged children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. We are extremely proud of our purpose built environment which is co-located with Whitehouse Pupil Referral Unit. Staff work in partnership with families and specialists to meet the needs each child.

We are part of Venn Academy Trust. Our expert team share their inclusive teaching expertise and behaviour management skills across the Trust and further afield.

Bridgeview Special School is a dynamic and caring environment where children are at the heart of all we do. We know our children and strive for them to achieve the goals within their Education, Health and Care Plans. To achieve this, we expertly intertwine the teaching of personal development and academic learning. Our approach promotes and celebrates individuality, whilst encouraging the pursuit of excellence.

We ensure our children are prepared for their next stages in education and adulthood by promoting independent learning and igniting an ambition to succeed. Our staff will be there alongside them each step of the journey.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or to arrange a visit.

I matter…

The things I do and the words I say are meaningful.

I am important…

People care about me and listen to me when I use my voice.

I belong…

Bridgeview is my school and I am an important part of it.

Our Motto

We passionately believe in our motto, ‘I matter, I am important, I belong’. Many of our children and families have had an unsettled time in education before arriving at Bridgeview.

For this reason, staff are committed to ensuring the children understand they have a place in our school, the local community and wider world.

We teach them how to make valuable contributions to where they belong. Our curriculum and pastoral support strongly promotes the importance of being a responsible citizen.
