Year 6 Secondary School Transition
We are now entering an exciting time for our Year 6 pupils who will soon be leaving us for new adventures at secondary school.
Natalie, our Mental Health Practitioner, will be running some Transition Groups to support children with their big move...
Parking Measures - Safer Routes to School
As you may be aware, we have had few incidents of inappropraite parking at school during drop of and pick up times. To help tackle this, as part of the Safer Routes to School scheme, Bristol City Council are proposing the introduction of Pencil Bollards to the footway outside of school.
The proposal documents can be found below, and any comments should be emailed directly to Bristol City Council at email@example.com by Monday 19th June.
Administration of Medication
As you are aware, we always try to support families by adminstering medication to pupils where necessary.
If your child takes regular medication, and there is a change in dosage or timings, it is essential that you inform us and complete a new form so that staff are aware of the change.
WE CANNOT ADMINISTER MEDICATION TO PUPILS WITHOUT WRITTEN CONSENT CONSENT.
We have had reports of head lice in multiple classes across the school.
Whilst head lice are not dangerous, they can cause serious itching which can be a distraction.
If you notice your child has head lice, please treat accordingly to avoid them spreading.

As you may be aware, we have had a number of cases of chicken pox in Nursery and KS1 classes.
Chicken pox is a common childhood illness and should not give cause for concern, however it is important that if your child has them, they are kept away from school for 5 days from the onset of the rash and do not return until the spots/blisters have dried up.

Wider Community Events
We now have a dedicated page to inform parents and families about the varius events and activities available within Knowle West and the wider community.
If you are aware of any clubs, events or activities that may be of interest to our pupils and their families, please feel free to give the details to Miss Morse in the school office who will be happy to add them to the page.
