What the school says...

Welcome to Tor Bridge Primary School, where children gain a lifelong love of learning.

At Tor Bridge Primary School, we are proud to have introduced a broad and ambitious, knowledge-based curriculum which inspires our children to be confident and kind citizens of the future who aspire to… ‘Go out into the world and do well. But more importantly go out into the world and do good’.

It is our belief that children learn best in a safe, secure and friendly environment that helps each child to develop as an individual learner and achieve their full potential.
We work incredibly hard to provide an educational setting based on these principles and feel sure that all children will be happy and thrive during their time at our school.

Our high quality and committed staff provide a first-class educational experience for our children. We aim to develop very positive and productive relationships with our community and friends. Our ‘Open Door’ policy ensures that there is always one of our team available to answer any questions or solve any problems that may develop.

Our curriculum is engaging, innovative, built on first-hand experiences and celebrates all curriculum areas, helping to ensure that our children develop the knowledge and skills they need to excel, and become creative and curious citizens that are required to achieve academic excellence at secondary school and beyond.

Our school has a wealth of resources and engages the children in activities which will prepare them for the next generation of learning.

Special Education Needs

Tor Bridge Primary School believe all children deserve the very best possible start to their education and we aim to enrich the lives of all our pupils. All children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) are welcome at Tor Bridge Primary School. Full support will be provided to each child who has SEND requirements with well thought-out strategies to overcome any barriers to learning. Tor Bridge Primary School is a fully inclusive school providing an outstanding and caring education so all pupils can achieve their potential. Parents are fully involved and the progress of children with SEND is monitored towards meeting specifically identified goals and targets. The school uses specialist strategies to support children. This includes a strong commitment towards the training and developing of all Teachers and Teaching and Learning Assistants in their understanding of SEN to ensure all are teachers of SEND. Excellent care, guidance and support contributes significantly to pupils’ personal development to make them all feel safe and secure and make the best possible academic and personal progress. If you have any questions about your child or SEND please speak to your class teacher or email Miss. Riseborough (Inclusion Leader) at [email protected]plymouth.sch.uk

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
