After lengthy discussion with stakeholders of the school, we have replaced the concept of a vision for the school with that of a mission. It is our mission to continue to develop as a school and community to the point where all pupils leave us as confident individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens. The key skills, qualities and attributes inherent in achieving our mission have been selected with pupils, parents and Governors. They are divided in to five areas - Safety, Health, Achievement, Responsibilityand Enjoyment. The initial letters of each area contribute to our school mission statement:

We try and link everything we do to our mission. The annual School Development Plan makes clear reference to it, and the priorities we set are aimed at bringing us closer to achieving it.

About Us

Welcome to Brentry Primary School!

It is a unique and popular school, based in the close knit community of Brentry in North Bristol. It has up to 210 pupils on role, aged between 4 and 11. It is a very special place that combines a hard working, determined and aspirational ethos with a happy, friendly and fun atmosphere.

The pupils are a delight; bubbly, motivated, creative and respectful. We are well supported in our efforts to educate them by an ambitious and appreciative set of parents and carers. The staff, both teaching and non teaching, are superb; dedicated, diligent and caring. They take their jobs very seriously, but not themselves, and the school is always full of laughter. Combine all this with an excellent Governing Body, a wonderful parents' association (POMs), an invaluable group of Reading Volunteers and beautiful, spacious grounds, and you can see why the school very quickly gets into your blood.

We work as partners towards achieving our Mission: Learn Together - SHARE Success. We have agreed outcomes we aspire to for our pupils in terms of academic ability and personal growth, that when achieved, will ensure they are informed and contributing citizens by the time they leave us.  

We are very proud of our consistently high standards in terms of pupil achievement and results. We are equally proud of the recognition we have gained in other areas through initiatives such as the International School Award, the Basic Skills Agency Quality Mark, the Primary Science Mark, Healthy Schools Plus status and the Eco Schools Awards. We were judged to be outstanding by Ofsted on their most recent visit. 

Brentry Primary School is a great environment in which to learn and a fantastic place to work. Please feel free to come along and visit us to find out for yourselves what a lovely school it is!
