At the Bridge we use evaluation forms and group discussion to evaluate the quality of the service we provide. We invite comments from students, parents, carers, schools and professionals at any time.

If you wish to feedback your comments and suggestions please e-mail or contact the Bridge for a form. Alternatively you can provide anonymous feedback to Ofsted about the Bridge Training and Development.  Please go to the Ofsted website to complete their questionnaire. Please ask at reception for  the parent view leaflet guide if needed.  Thank you for taking the time as parents and carers to provide us with this feedback.

Results of surveys are fedback to students and their suggestions are acted upon where possible.

Recent Feedback

Here is some of our recent feedback from students on the animal care courses-

” It is really good fun, a good experience meeting new people, learning how to care for animals properly especially the chickens and sheep, gain knowledge and confidence around a variety of animals, love handling and caring for the indoor animals different ones to the ones you have at home. Staff are really nice and it’s good to work as a team. It’s a good learning opportunity and it looks good on your CV, other students have used their certificates from the Bridge to help get a job.”

Here is some of our recent professional feedback-

“As a carer I have been amazed by the development of our foster child both emotionally and the change in his attitude towards education.”

“The Bridge provides a degree of flexibility and focus on the individual that can enable even those who really have struggled to feel valued, to engage and fulfil their potential”.
Educational Psychologist

I have been placing students at the Bridge for many years now. Students embrace the placement and grow in confidence every week. It benefits their self-esteem. Their knowledge of animal care has grown. Being out of the school environment has been very good and is the highlight of their week.
