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.

Consultation on Changes to Local Services

We are encouraging parents and carers to respond to the Bristol City Council’s consultation on proposals to change local services. The proposals include closing both Horfield and Lockleaze libraries and cutting our school crossing patrol on Filton Avenue so we feel it is important that our school community takes this opportunity to express their views.

Follow this link to read the proposal

The survey is open now for 12 weeks, closing on Tuesday 5 September 2017. Please respond now to make sure that your opinions are heard.

 

This Friday is Den Day!

On Friday 16th June we will be supporting Save the Children Fund’s Den Day.

Our pupils will be joining children from around the UK to unleash their imaginations and transform their classrooms and playgrounds into amazing dens. To raise funds for Den Day, we are asking them to bring in a donation of £1 on the day.

The money they raise will help Save the Children give children around the world a safe place to sleep at night.
