In September of 2018 Chipping Ongar Primary School became a member of the Bridge Academy Trust. We did not change our name, our values or our uniform but we have become a part of a trust that values Acheivement, Enjoyment and Enrichment. The Bridge Academy Trust includes the 3 primary schools of Ongar as well as the Ongar Academy and we have joined together to ensure school improvement for all of the children in the Ongar area.
We visited many Academies over the last 12 months and from our extensive investigations we believe that converting to Academy status offers the most effective way of supporting improvements in educational standards and outcomes.
