A Warm Welcome

On behalf of the whole school community, I would like to welcome you to Platt Bridge Community School and Start Well Family Centre.

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.

We are proud of our achievements, our happy and caring atmosphere and the rich extended services available to all pupils and their families.

At Platt Bridge Community School we expect the highest standards from our pupils in all aspects of school life.

We nurture positive attitudes to learning and behavior. Our staff provide a caring, safe and supportive learning environment for our pupils.

We actively encourage strong links with our pupils, their families, governors and the community.

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.
