School Values: Promotes Belief Creates Success

A very warm welcome

On behalf of all the staff, local governors, trustees, children and families of Community First Academy Trust and Platt Bridge Community School, I warmly welcome you to our school and Start Well Family Centre.

The staff at Platt Bridge Community School are committed to ensuring that every child entrusted to our care achieves their full potential in a happy and caring environment. Platt Bridge Community School was the first full service extended school within the Wigan authority and as its name suggests we always aim to be at the heart of the community.

Our school motto of ‘Promotes Belief Creates Success’ encapsulates our approach to learning, and our school values are underpinned by championing the success and life chances of all children.

At Platt Bridge Community School we expect the highest standards from our pupils in all aspects of school life. We are proud of our achievements, our happy and caring atmosphere and the rich extended services available to all pupils and their families.

We nurture positive attitudes to learning and behavior and offer provision for pupils aged 2 to 11. Our staff provide a caring, safe and supportive learning environment for our pupils and we actively encourage strong links with our pupils, their families, governors and the community.

I very much hope you are able to get a flavour of our school from our website. Please do not hesitate to contact our friendly, school team if you require any further information.
