“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!

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.
