If you were unable to make your appointment but would still like to speak with your child's class teacher, please contact the school office who will be happy to arrange something for you.

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.

Holidays during term time 

Please can we remind parents that they should not be taking holidays during term time. We are very fortunate to have multiple half term breaks spread throughout the school year and these are the perfect time for holidays. 

As well as being disruptive to your child's education, holidays during term time will also result in a penalty notice (fine) being issued to you. The current penalty notice charge stands at £60 per parent/per child. 

The school holiday dates for both this school year and next are available in the 'dates for your diary' section at the top of our newsletter, so please use this as guidance when booking time away.
