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 (including the Elliot building) is designed to accommodate 270 children plus a Special Educational Needs “Resource Base” for up to 18 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.
Emersons Green is a ‘Good’ School. Pupils currently in the school make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils’ attainment and progress in reading are strengths of the school. The school’s focus to improve writing and mathematics is successfully strengthening achievement. Resource base pupils learn successfully alongside their classmates and achieve well because they are supported exceptionally well by staff and work is suitably adapted for their needs. Pupils are taught well across the school and teaching assistants consistently provide effective support for learning. Teachers provide stimulating activities and discussion in lessons is lively. These capture pupils’ curiosity and interest. Pupils, including disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, concentrate well and persevere with tasks. Governors have strengthened school leadership. They challenge leaders and hold them to account for improving the quality of teaching and pupils’ achievement.
