We are very proud to announce that today we have gained the prestigious Mayors award of excellence in health improving schools. The school has ensured that children’s health and safety needs are put first and have particularly focused on improving the mental health and weight of our children. Children have been practising mindfulness and eating healthy lunches to help achieve our goal.
We are also very proud of Miss Kirk who won the Teachers award today.
The Food Festival 2017 was a fantastic event celebrating the cultural diversity within our school community and we’d like to say a massive thank you to all our staff, children and families who created some amazing recipes from around the world. Every class in the school, on both sites, took responsibility for designing and creating a recipe to share. Many families attended the event and enjoyed tasting a variety of foods including American desserts, Chinese noodles, Brazillian and Spanish tapas and Italian salads, pastas and pizzas. Some of our youngest children created Lion pancakes and Year 2 were inventive with their Mythical Creatures topic serving Unicorn cheesecake, Dragon dips and Mermaid macaroni!
Thank you for supporting and celebrating with us.

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.
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.
