Goodbye to Year 6

Goodbye and good luck to Year 6 as they leave us to move on to their new schools.  We’ll miss you all!

We hope our children and families have a great summer. The children return to school on Wednesday 5th September 2018.

Great Results

It’s been another very successful year at Filton Avenue Primary School, in spite of some of the comments in our Ofsted report, as we continue to make year on year improvements to outcomes since the merger of the schools in September 2015. As you will see from the data below we have made accelerated and sustained improvements to our Key Stage 2 outcomes; Key Stage 1 outcomes are improving too; Phonics Screening Check outcomes remain the same as last year; our end of EYFS outcomes show our pupils achieving their highest ever Good Level of Development (GLD). As you can also see, all our outcomes compare favourably with local authority (LA) and national averages. We won’t, however, be resting on our laurels, as we continue to strive to improve outcomes further next year.

Playground Buddy Assembly at Orchard Campus


Our playground buddies led an assembly to explain what it means to be a playground buddy and what help and support they can offer in the playground. They acted out some playground behaviour scenarios and discussed what different people might do to help.

Girls Football Team’s First Tournament

Our Year 6 girls football team entered their first tournament on Monday 23rd April. It was organised to coincide with women’s football week and the girls got the chance to play on the fantastic facilities at St Bede’s.



Miss Wheeler and Mr Warren were very proud of the team, this was their first tournament and they were up against much more experienced teams. They didn’t win but they did exhibit a fantastic attitude, some excellent skills and great examples of team work.  Their defence was excellent and they have started competing in a really positive manner.



Investigating Weather

Pupils at Mad Science club have been investigating weather – making tornadoes and finding out why rain does not always fall, even though there are always water droplets in the atmosphere.
