About Us

At Shirehampton we pride ourselves on our ‘open door’ policy; fantastic and hardworking staff and governors plus extremely supportive parents.

The school is very well respected within the North Bristol community for its caring, inclusive and welcoming atmosphere. Everyone involved with Shirehampton Primary is focussed upon high standards and there is a special team spirit committed to developing the whole child by ensuring learning is fun, children feel safe, self-esteem is high and everyone is happy.  We strongly believe in having appropriate challenge for pupils within the core subjects, and pupils are set in Mathematics from Year 1.  The teachers in each phase work closely together in their planning and are very supportive of each other.

We have a rich, creative and experiential curriculum, which makes learning relevant and irresistible for our children and their families particularly when everyone comes together for our ‘Family Challenge’ activities.  Our skills-based learning is designed to equip children with the key skills they will need to be successful in their lives going forward, as well as provide many first-hand experiences and whole school trips.

We recognise working in partnership with parents is crucial to children’s learning experience and we work hard to develop strong home school links and provide support where it is requested; this has been enhanced by our Parent Council.
