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!

Our three-times Golden Ticket winners/recipients, enjoyed tea/squash and cake with Mr Rodeck last week. All these children have been wonderful adverts for the school’s values of Collaboration, Aspiration, Respect and Endeavour. Well done!
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.
We would like to invite you to join our Harvest Festival celebration assemblies on Tuesday 10th October at the following times:
Orchard Campus – 9.30 AM in the School Hall
Lockleaze Road Years 1,2 & 3 – 9.10 AM in the Phase 1 Hall
Lockleaze Road Years 4,5 & 6 – 10.45 AM in the Phase 1 Hall
We will be collecting goods donations. Please bring these in to school, non-perishable goods can be brought in at anytime but please only bring perishable donations on Tuesday 10th October. There will be a sale of fresh goods such as bread, fruits and cakes at 3.15PM on both sites.
We will pass the non-perishable goods to the North Bristol Food bank and the proceeds of the sale will go to Save the Children.
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.
