A very warm welcome to Avonmouth C.E. Primary School.
Avonmouth Church of England Primary school is situated in Avonmouth village and welcomes children from nursery through to year six. Please take a look through the information on the website. We are extremely proud of our school and are delighted to celebrate the successes and achievements of all members of our school community.
We have high expectations for all the children in our school, both academically and behaviourally, and strive to meet the needs of every child.
Outstanding Church SIAMS Inspection Report
We are delighted to report that we were judged to be Outstanding in our Statutory Inspection of Anglican & Methodist Schools (SIAMS) inspection on Wednesday 21st March 2018. Please follow the link to read full report SIAMS Inspection Report March 2018.
We are pleased to inform you that we have introduced a new service called "School Gateway" which allows us to share information with you more quickly via email, text, online and smartphone app. It also enables parents and carers to pay for school lunches and give consent for activities through their School Gateway account.
To start using School Gateway please visit the website www.schoolgateway.com and click on New User. You will receive a text message with a PIN number which will allow you to log in. Alternatively if you have a smartphone, you can download the app from your app store which will show you the same information as the website.
We hope that all parents and carers will start to use School Gateway as it is a great way to keep up to date with what's going on at school and an easier way to make payments.
YEAR SIX CAMP
The children in Year 6 had an amazing week last week on their residential visit to Barton Camp. There was a whole host of exciting activities for the children including: kayaking, tobogganing, a falconry display, swimming, archery, shelter building and disc golf!
The children (and staff) arrived back at school exhausted on Friday! They had enjoyed a fantastic week and some brilliant weather too.
WHAT AN EXCITING WEEK!
Children across the school had a very exciting enrichment week last week! Tuesday, saw the children in Reception, Year 1, 2 & 3 enjoying tennis lessons from a specialist coach from the British Lawn Tennis Association. The children in Year 4 visited Mojo Active for the first of our 3 trips there last week.
On Wednesday, Y3 went to Mojo. The children in Y5 did a ‘Play in a Day’ with a director from Act On Info Theatre Company. This was fully funded by the school in order to provide this exciting opportunity for the children based on British Values. We hope to share some of this with parents at the Class Worship led by Y5 on 5th July.
On Thursday it was the turn of the Year 5 to visit Mojo Active. The children in all 3 classes had the opportunity to take part in the assault course and low ropes. The cost of this trip was heavily subsidised by the school using Sports Premium funding.
On Friday, we had the Explorer Dome in school. This was another amazing opportunity for the children across the whole school (reception to Year 5) to enjoy the Energy Show all about the Earth, energy, sustainability and renewables. The show took place inside a dome and was very exciting. This was fully funded by Thrive Renewables who operate some of the wind turbines in Avonmouth as it was Global Wind Day on Friday. An enormous thank you to them for providing such a brilliant opportunity for the children. I am sure your children will be keen to share what they learnt in the dome.
The children in Reception and Key Stage One have their sports day on Wednesday morning from 9.15am. The children are in different colour groups. Letters were sent home on Friday regarding what colour t-shirts children should wear if possible. Please do speak with class teachers if you are not sure which colour t-shirt children need.
The Key Stage Two sports day is at 1.45pm. We anticipate this will finish at the end of the school day. Children in key stage two are invited to wear t-shirts in their house colours.
Hopefully the sun will be shining! Please do send children with a hat, sun cream and a water bottle.
UPDATE RE. SCHOOL PACKED LUNCHES
School packed lunches were very popular option with the children last week.
We kindly ask that parents discuss the menu with children so that they know what the sandwich filling for the day is. They will also be reminded in class.
There is only one option available each day for the sandwich or wrap filling. If your child does not like the option available they should choose a different lunch
option for that day – either hot school meal, jacket potato or salad bar. Please click here for Menus.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We are starting the countdown towards this year's Summer Fair! The Fair will be on Wednesday 4th July 3.30-5pm.
If you are able to volunteer to help with either the preparations, at the fair or with clearing up, your help would be greatly appreciated.
