Where classes will be closed, we have been able to offer a small number of places following the government's guidance on ‘Vulnerable Children and Young People’. In these small number of cases we will be contacting parents to organise this care. 

We can confirm  that we do intend to open for certain classes, due to expected adequate staffing. The classes that will open as normal are:

Building Works - Filwood Broadway 

As you have probably noticed, there's lots of exciting work going on in the area with the redevelopment of Filwood Broadway. 

Next week, the demolition of the old cinema will begin and whilst we have been assured this should cause minimal disruption to school, there will be increased traffic around the site so we would like to remind families to be vigilant whilst travelling to and from school. 

The development also means that the lane that runs behind the buildings on Filwood Broadway (from Hartcliffe Road to Barnstaple Road) will be closed for a period of time during the works. Whilst we don't know exactly when this closure will happen, please keep an eye out as we know many parents use this lane to access school and you may need to allow extra time to plan an alternative route to school. 

After School Clubs / Lunch Time Clubs 

As we now have Choir running after school every Monday, Ukulele club has now moved to a Tuesday lunch time. If your child is interested in joining, please ask them to speak to Mr Condon. 

We also have Spanish Club running with Mrs Jordan on a Thursday lunch time. Spanish Club is available to Children in Years 1 & 2, please speak to Mrs Jordan if your child would like to join. 

Please can we remind parents to book their children in to afterschool  clubs using the School Gateway App before 12.00noon on the day of the session. 

For more information on the clubs we have on offer, head to our After School Clubs page 

Girls Netball 

The Year 5 and 6 girls netball team went out to a friendly tournament at Ashton Park School this week. The afternoon was a fun mix of drills and competitive matches - the girls showed great teamwork and determination. They were passing the ball into space and making lots of interceptions all down the court. Well done and looking forward to going again in a couple of weeks time.  

New Guests in EYFS!

Governors update

We currently have no vacancies for school governors, however if this is something you may be interested in the future, please speak to the school office.
