More About Us                                                             

Bradford Pre-school dates back to 1985.

The opportunity to open Bridgerule in April 2011, came about because of the close working relationship between Bradford and Bridgerule Primary Schools, who are in the Holsworthy Federation of Schools. Proving the positive outcomes of communities working together.

Both our pre-schools are registered with OFSTED (Bradford – 106301 & Bridgerule – EY416736). We are regularly inspected, to assure parents / carers that what we offer meets the standards laid down in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and curriculum. Bradford’s last inspection, in May-2015, judged our quality & standards of care & education to be “Good”. Bridgerule’s last inspection, in Dec-2015, also judged our quality & standards of care & education to be “Good”.

We are registered as a charity (no.1027477) and are managed by a voluntary committee made up predominantly of parents from both settings. We have adopted the standard Pre-school Learning Alliance constitution 2011. The Annual General Meeting is held each June. We encourage parents / carers to join the Committee as this is a really effective way of steering the group. The group is dependent on a full active Committee and cannot operate without one.

Our charity aim is:

  • To enhance the development and education of children under school age in a parent-involving community based project.
  • To provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment.
  • To work within a framework, which ensures inclusion for all children and their families. 

We offer your child:

  • Access to a wide and varied range of activities and resources tailored to their needs and interests, working through the Early Years Foundation Stage.
  • Individual care and attention made possible by a high adult to child ratio.
  • Fun and friendship with children and other adults.
  • Support of a key personSmooth transitions onto the next stage of their education.

All parents and carers are encouraged to be fully involved in all aspects of their child’s care and education whilst in our setting, through regular keyperson meetings, passing of information within their communication books and verbally on a day to day basis. We survey our parents / carers on their childcare and education needs so that we can provide them with the best possible services.
