Background Information

“Be Kind, Be Curious, Be You”


Children are in school for 33.3 hours each week


Daily routine

The school day begins at 8:45am and ends at 3:20pm. Children in Year 1 and 2 have a short morning playtime and a snack and drink break during the afternoon. All children have an hour lunchtime where they eat with their year group, and then are supported in an outdoor play session by our SMSA team and Shine Sports coaches. Reception children have access to their own outdoor learning environment throughout the day. Every class has space outside their classroom for outdoor learning.

Class Organisation

There are two Reception classes, three Year 1 classes, and two Year 2 classes.

The Campus

We share our site with Henleaze Junior School and Claremont Special School.

The three schools have worked together to develop a Campus style of collaboration, where we can all benefit from each other’s experience and expertise. For the children, this means that there are many opportunities for pupils in the schools to work together.

Children from Claremont are invited to spend time with us during playtime and Junior and Infant children meet for various events in the year and are invited to enjoy performances. In addition, Breakfast Club and after school provision therough School’s Out Henleaze is available for children in both the Infant and Junior schools. Click below for more information.

Staff of the three schools meet regularly to ensure that there is full communication and sharing of knowledge between the three schools.

We feel that the result is an enriched educational environment which benefits us all.
