A huge thank you to everyone who helped at our Careers Fair

On Friday, volunteers from many different professions came to talk to our  Year 5 and Year 6 children about their careers.

The children really enjoyed having the opportunity to talk to people from over 30 different professions about future careers including; architecture, graphic design, TV production, engineering, medicine, writing, acting, photography and many more. Many of the children were unaware that there were so many interesting jobs they could do when they were older. They loved having the opportunity to talk to the adults and find out more.

The school would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came along to support us and share their experiences with the children.

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.



Darren Jones MP visits school

We were delighted that Darren Jones, our local MP, visited Filton Avenue Primary on Monday morning. After a tour of the school, he spent an illuminating and informative 45 minutes with our Year 5 Pupil Advocates, who put him through his paces with some searching questions. We now have some budding politicians within our midst.


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.
