NEW TERM IMPORTANT INFORMATION
From Tuesday 5th January, The Bridge will continue to be open for students but due to Tier 4 restrictions, students will only be on an academic timetable only, therefore, am or pm only. If your child is unsure which timetable they will be on for the new term, please confirm with your child's tutor. Yzone students will be unaffected and will attend on their own respective scheduled times.
You will be aware the Government have recommended all staff and pupils be tested in schools to help prevent the spread of the virus.
We have set up a weekly program of testing for staff at the Bridge Education Centre, which will happen outside of school hours in order to limit the impact upon your child's education.
We would like to offer testing to pupils who attend the school however, to do so we require your consent. Testing is not mandatory and so either you or your child can decline taking part in the testing program at any time.
For more information on the testing and to download a consent form, please go to our Covid-19 page or click here.

It also gives full details of how this will affect your household.
