Working with Our Community
Our school recognises its accountability to the local community. Our children are very pro-active in fund raising projects which help others. Each year they come up with good ideas to raise money to support the work of both local and international charities.
We drive improvement and relations within our community through our Diversity Forum which is a volunteer team of parents and carers who reflect the diversity of our school community. Their role is to support us to enhance the links that we currently have with our parents and the local community; to forge new partnerships locally, nationally and globally.
We regularly offer the resources and facilities of our school to local groups and charities.

Greencore Bristol – Community Support Initiative 2016-2017
We have been working closely in partnership with Mr Klos, one of our parents, who works for Greencore Prepared Meals in Bradley Stoke. Mr Klos and
Mrs Hickson, our School Business Manager, presented an opportunity to fund and support our Play Pod project to the directors of Greencore in their Dragon's Den Community Support Initiative. We are delighted to announce that they were successful in their pitch and the school has been awarded a grant of £920 to sponsor our Play Pod for a whole year. We will be inviting representatives of Greencore into school to celebrate this achievement shortly and thank them for their support. Moving forward we aim to forge links between Greencore and the Children's Scrap Store to see if any of their waste could be donated directly to them so that other schools may benefit from this partnership.
This Year we raised £91.55 at the Poppy Cake Sale and £866.06 during the poppy collections at lunchtime and after-school. Our grand total was a very generous£961.61. Thank you to all staff, parents and children for all their donations, with a very special thank you to Freya in Year 5 for her hard work collecting during and after school.
