Lockleaze Road OPAL Non Uniform Day

We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated ‘loose parts’ on our first OPAL Non-uniform Day, at Lockleaze Road last Friday. We were overwhelmed by the enormous amount of donations; they will enable us to really develop the play offer our children receive and we will be holding more events like this in the future. However, you don’t have to wait for an event, we’ll accept ‘loose parts’ anytime!  Here is the list of ‘loose parts’ we’d like to receive.

We plan to roll OPAL out at Orchard Campus from September 2018.



E Safety Day

This week in school our pupils have been exploring E-Safety and some of the issues around staying safe when using technology and the internet. This included some excellent assemblies and workshops provided by our colleagues at Unique Voice.

We know that E-Safety is a cause for concern for many of our Parents and Carers so have attached a copy of the presentation on the topic delivered by Mrs McCorry at the Community Partnership meeting. The NSPCC Net Aware website is also a great tool and allows you to review the suggested minimum and, function and security of a site, app or game to help you support your children in staying safe online.

“Our Heritage” Celebration

Our first ever ‘Our Heritage’ celebration event, held at Lockleaze Road on Friday evening, was a huge success. Our pupils, their families and friends came along to celebrate each others’ heritages and histories. With more than, 50 languages and 40 nationalities in the school, our diverse cultural backgrounds were represented though music, cultural performances, a fashion show and exhibitions of learning as well as the delicious food served at the Food Festival.  We can’t say a big enough thank you to all who were involved for making it such a joyful and memorable event.

We can’t wait to do it all again next year!

We are creating “Our Heritage” world map, if you haven’t already, please take the time to fill in our Zeemap  and follow the instructions below.

Harvest Festival success!

A big thank you to everyone who helped make our Harvest Festival celebration a great success by attending the assemblies, donating food or purchasing goods from our fresh produce sale. We managed to raise a total of £124.50 for Save the Children and all non-perishable foods were collected by North Bristol Foodbank to be donated to families in need across the local area.
