Welcome to Horfield Church of England Primary School
This is the place to find lots of useful information about our vibrant and busy school.
Discover what the children have been doing in their class, the special events happening across the whole school, our staff and governors, the numerous extra curricular clubs that we run during lunchtimes and after school every day and much more essential information you may need!
As a school we are very concerned about the amount of plastic in our environment. We are taking part in a competition to engage everyone about science learning and raise awareness of global issues. So all the pupils have been challenged to make a "sea bird" out of a drinks bottle. This will be sent down a zip wire and will have a magnet suspended from it which will try and pick up the most fish (as opposed to harmful plastic).
We are going to run a Science morning where all children in the school will make a bird. This will take place on Tuesday 19th March and we would really like to have a huge number of extra hands on this day. So if you fancy doing some engineering, design or modelling in the morning (9.15am to 12 noon) please let the office know.
We are also looking for helpers on Tuesday 29th January! Year 6 are participating in an exciting Neuroscience workshop led by Dr David Turk from the University of Bristol. They will be taking part in lots of challenges and activities and the workshop leaders have requested some help to oversee the tasks - please note no science background is necessary! The help is needed from 10am until 12.15pm. Again, please let the office know if you can help - thank you!
And yet another plea for help! We are holding a school grounds "tidy up" morning on Saturday 9th February from 10am until 12 noon. We would appreciate any offers of help for a couple of hours and some garden tools would be especially appreciated!
We are rolling out a new library scanning system and are looking for volunteers to help us set up the new recording system. If you do have some spare time please let the office know. Many thanks!

If you have a son or daughter joining us this September in Reception, or are thinking of looking around our school later this year ready for September 2019, here's a lovely film made by one of our parents mapping out a day in Class 1 and 2!
