Local Clubs and Groups
Nurturing a lifelong love of reading is a central part of our role, and the support of parents is absolutely vital. Reading with children on a daily basis makes a huge impact on each child’s progress. Whilst our young people benefit from a totally refurbished school library in 2015, outside of school hours we appreciate that most parents are not in a position to buy their children expensive new books every week and rely heavily on the wide range of books available for hire at the local library. Reading develops children’s minds, it helps them discover new things, nurtures their imaginations and is a vital skill for life. The local library also provides a range of children’s events and school holiday activities that are highly valued by our parents and young people.” Headteacher, Nicola Bailey.
Filton Community Garden
The Community Garden project commenced in 2012 with a simple idea of creating a space and focal point for the community to come together to not only enjoy relaxing and playing in but also be part of its creation.
Three years on the garden has become much loved part of the community and has won a number of awards from national bodies including the RHS who described it as the best garden of its type and a benchmark for others.
Our pupils are very proud of being a part of this local project; we make regular visits to the garden, to maintain the school plot, as well as taking part in local community events.
