School Curriculum

We believe our children should have a sound knowledge and understanding of the national curriculum subjects. We aim to fully develop their concepts and skills through our teaching. We also try to prepare children for their future role in society by making them aware of their personal abilities.  It is also important that children have high self esteem, and we like to encourage this.

Extra-curricular Activities

After School Clubs

There are a number of clubs and opportunities available to children.  Some are organised voluntarily by staff, for others we ask for a contribution towards the cost of employing outside expertise.  Children and parents are informed in advance each term of the opportunities being planned.  Each year two or three performances are put on for parents and friends such as our most recent Christmas drama production which involved children from across the school.


Such activities include art, hockey, football, netball, cricket, athletics, table tennis, tennis, recorders, drama, dance, singing and computers.

These are the clubs which are currently on offer (Term 1&2 2006).  Please see the appropriate teacher if you would like to join.  A form must be returned to school if you wish to join one of the clubs.

The School Day


Morning session: 8.55 - 11.25am          Afternoon session: 12.45 - 3.15pm

Reception, Years 1 and 2

These children are the responsibility of Parents/Carer until received by the teacher in the classroom each morning.  Similarly, children must be collected by an agreed adult at the end of school.

Start: 8.50am      Lunch: 12.10 - 1.15pm      Ends: 3.10pm

Years 3, 4, 5 and 6

These children are supervised on the playground from 8.40am. They should not arrive before.

Start: 8.50am      Lunch: 12.20 - 1.15pm     Ends: 3.10pm


Children may have a school dinner, bring a packed lunch or go home for lunch.

School dinners: The cost of school dinners is £1.45 per day.  This should be sent to school each Monday in an envelope clearly marked with your child's name and class. Cheques should be made payable to Bristol City Council.  If you think you are entitled to free school meals, please call at the office where appropriate arrangements can be made.

Packed lunches:  These should be in a container clearly labelled with name and class.

Going home for lunch:  Children who go home for lunch must be collected from school and should not return until 1.15 pm.

During lunchtime:  We expect children to enjoy eating and playing together and to behave sensibly.  There are three separate play areas.  The car park is out of bounds.

Snacks:  Children may bring fruit, plain biscuits or crisps to eat during morning break.  Only soft, still drinks are allowed in school.


Absence:  If your child is unable to come to school, it is necessary to contact the school by 10.00am on the first day of absence, usually by telephone.  If you are going on holiday, please ask for a 'planned absence' form although it is preferable if the holiday could be arranged to coincide with school holidays.  During term time, holidays should be limited to a maximum of two weeks per year.  Please note that the headteacher can only give permission for children to be absent from school for reasons of illness, medical and dental appointments, an approved activity, a special religious day relevant to the family, or an urgent family crisis.  Absences for outings, parties, shopping etc. are not permitted.  All unauthorised absences must be reported.  It is not the policy of the school to set work for children who are absent.

Punctuality:  Children must be in school at the given time.  Children who arrive late often feel embarrassed and uncomfortable and do not know what to do as they have missed the start of the lesson.

End of the day:  Children must be collected punctually from school.  If arrangements for going home do have to change during the day, please inform the office as soon as possible.  Staff will endeavour to pass the message to the class teacher or child concerned.

Clothing and Personal Property

We have a school uniform because it: 

  • enables children to identify with the school
  • reinforces a positive work ethos
  • reduces expenditure for parents

We expect that children will wear the school uniform, with the appropriate footwear.  The school colour is navy with grey, black or navy skirt or trousers.  The styles must be plain.  Your child will also need a bag for school items and homework, a PE bag and a craft shirt.  All items of clothing must be clearly named.

School sweat tops, polo shirts, summer dresses, PE kit, homework bags and PE bags can be bought from school.

Full details of the school uniform and price list are available from the office.
