South Bristol Schools Crisis
Offers for primary school places have been made for September 2014 and we are delighted that the local schools were able to accommodate all children living in the area. Many families got their first choice. Thank you to the Council and schools for their hard work.
The area now has sufficient reception places for all the children in the area. There has been strong support from the Council, with the acquisition of land for Ashton Gate and Southville to expand, and from the local schools which have expanded or taken on "bulge" classes when needed. There are also plans to create a new school on the caravan site near Spike Island, which should increase choice for BS3 families and help with the lack of places in the Hotwells and Clifton Wood areas.
We continue to monitor these developments and keep the community informed.
South Bristol Schools Campaign is a community-led group initially formed when there was a lack of local school places in BS3. It seems that long term solutions are now in place, so our role will now be limited to liaising with schools and the Council to ensure the delivery of promised new places and new sites, and to share information with the local community.For the latest information, join the mailing list - this will allow the campaign group to quickly and easily inform and keep track of all those concerned.You can also email the campaign group: email@example.com

- stay as we are, a one form entry Primary School on the current site
- consider adding a new school building a short distance away, which would be completed in 2015. This would mean Southville Primary would remain as one school but operate across two sites and eventually be three forms of entry.
