This week in our values assembly the children looked back at all the fantastic VPPS Passport Opportunities they have experienced this term. It was fantastic to see photographs of our school camps, trips out and visitors to school. To share in these memories, don't forget to look on Instagram and search for VPPSBristol.

Congratulations Mrs Heath

Over the half term break, our wonderful School Business Manager (and friend to everyone) Mrs Heath will be getting married! We wish her a fantastic day, and will welcome back Mrs Templar in June.

Curriculum Newsletters

Each term, we provide a curriculum newsletter per year group. These are written by class teachers and give an overview of the learning that will be taking place each term in your child's class. Here they are for Term 6:


Thank you to everyone who donated an item for our food bank drive. We were overwhelmed with your kindness and generosity. This morning some of our school council members took the donations down to the food bank at Victoria Park Baptist Church. The volunteers there were very grateful for our huge collection and talked to the children about the work they do at the food bank. It was lovely to see our children showing kindness towards members of our wider community.

Let's Go Zero

We’ve taken the Let’s Go Zero pledge, declaring our aim to become zero carbon by 2030. We’re joining schools across the UK in this national campaign to show the overwhelming support for zero carbon schools, and inviting government and local councils to work with us to reach this goal.

We know that schools can be the trailblazers for their community, responding to young people’s calls for action.  In fact, they can inspire whole communities to tackle the climate crisis.

By joining the Let’s Go Zero campaign, we’re taking a positive step on a local level to help combat the climate issues we all face globally. It sends a strong message to our whole school and community that together we can safeguard our planet for future generations.

Award-winning theatre this half term for £1!

Our partner theatre company Tiny and Tall Productions - whose previous shows include The Tap Dancing Mermaid, The Selfish Giant, The Detective Dog and The Anarchist's Mobile Library - are bringing their award-winning show A Strange New Space to The Wardrobe Theatre in Old Market this half term. They've very kindly given VPPS pupils a special discount code that means all tickets will cost just £1! It's a beautiful non-verbal show about a girl's journey to find a safe new home, told through an imagined adventure into space. KS1 enjoyed watching the company's dress rehearsal last week and we strongly urge you to take up this ticket offer for an unforgettable half term treat. For more information and booking, go to and use the code SPACE1 for £1 tickets. 

Summer Fair Donations Needed

The PTFA Summer Fair is coming up soon: Saturday the 15th June at 12pm! The PTFA needs your help to make the Fair a success - we're collecting donations after the half-term holiday of the following items for the Fair:

  • Friday 7th June - Bottles (full, unopened bottles of anything you wish - although no energy drinks or Prime please!)
  • Tuesday 11th June - Teddies needing a new home, clean and in good shape
  • Friday 14th June - Jolly Jars and a non-uniform day
  • We will also be collecting Cake donations on Friday the 14th June. 

Please bring your donations to school at drop-off for our PTFA volunteers to collect. 

We also need Summer Fair volunteers! If you can spare some time to help set up, run a stall, or clean up, let us know through the Classlist app or by signing up to the Classlist app (if you don't have it already) here:

Attendance Week

During the first week back after half term, we will be having an attendance week in school. We will be sharing lots of information with you during the course of that week in relation to school attendance. In an attempt to increase punctuality we will be holding a raffle each day where children who arrive before the gates close at 8:50 will be given a raffle ticket to go into a daily prize draw for each phase. This is just for fun and to raise the profile of being on time to school. 

Moose AGM

Moose will be holding their annual AGM on Thursday 13th June 2024.

Meet time: 7.30pm with an 8pm start.

Venue: The Star & Dove, 75-78 St Luke’s Road, Totterdown, Bristol, BS3 4RY.

Moose are appealing to parents/carers to join this meeting as they are currently still looking for, and urgently need, new volunteer Directors to join their team. The current volunteer Directors are parent/carer users of the setting and work alongside the fantastic Moose staff to ensure they have the facilities, finance and operational oversight to continue providing a fun, nurturing and safe place for our children. The roles are varied; skills from many areas of employment are extremely valuable to the running of Moose. If you can spare 2-3 hours each term and are interested in becoming a future Director/would like to attend the AGM, please get in touch with Sam at , or talk to one of the Playworkers when collecting your child/ren. Without the team of Directors, there simply will be no Moose!
