Emerson Green is a village situated on the north east outskirts of Bristol. The area was built to give a ‘village style’ atmosphere by including schools, shops, village hall, library and sports facilities.
Emersons Green Primary School opened in September 2000. The school is a community co-educational primary school and takes children from the age of four to eleven years. The building is designed to accommodate 240 children plus a Special Educational Needs “Resource Base” for up to 15 physically disabled and/or visually impaired children. The school is organised into 8 classes. The Resource Base provides specialist teaching and children are included in mainstream classes as appropriate.
This is an outstanding school where pupils enjoy learning and are very well cared for. An exciting curriculum, with a fully inclusive range of opportunities, helps pupils develop into responsible youngsters, well prepared for the next step in their education. Consequently, pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities acquire skills which lead to greater independence in learning.The harmonious school community is the result of excellent relationships between pupils and staff. Parents and carers, staff and pupils all say that behaviour is very good. Much emphasis is put on the emotional well-being of pupils and this means they feel confident to share any concerns or worries with the adults in school.Parents and carers report a high level of confidence in the work of the school. They particularly praise the inclusive nature of opportunities and how well their children are prepared for life skills. As one parent put it, ‘The school brings up a better generation.’
