Welcome to Fishponds CE Academy

Thank you for visiting Fishponds Church of England Academy's website. We hope you enjoy browsing. We are a large and exciting inner city Church of England Primary School in the vibrant city of Bristol. We are a rich and diverse community, with many different religions, cultures and languages and it is this diversity that complements and enriches our inclusive ethos. Children and families of all faiths and of none, and of all backgrounds are welcomed equally. We work closely with families and the community as partners in a child’s education to enhance outcomes together and firmly believe in the education of the ‘whole child’ .

Progress and achievements in many areas are valued and celebrated, underpinned by good behaviour and our strong pastoral support by our fantastic staff, which enables children to feel safe and secure.

The BLM inspired Covid recovery unit was very impactful. The children spoke confidently and  clearly about what they had learnt and shared their opinions. There was a close alignment with the vision and values and ethos . History is a making a strong contribution to children’s personal development.

Highly aspirational history curriculum. This would look impressive in KS3!

Quality of recorded work in books is really impressive.

Excellent differentiation for SEND pupils.

Highly effective use of skilled reading assistants supports children who are falling behind or could be at risk of falling behind. This supports closing the gap for vulnerable children. The reading culture in the school is well established. Children are able to talk about books and reading. Children enjoy reading and the library provides high quality texts.
