Welcome to Bannerman Road Community Academy.

 

Welcome to Bannerman Road Community Academy, which is an inclusive primary school in Bristol and shares its setting with the Children's Centre, providing education and caring support for our children from birth to 11 years old.
 
The two modern buildings in inner city Bristol,  Easton are linked by play areas and our developing landscaped areas are used in forest school activities for all children.
 
We celebrate our diverse and multi-lingual community and believe that all pupils are entitled to high quality, engaging and exciting teaching and learning. We have high expectations and challenge everyone to reach his or her full potential.
 
 
Our Vision
We believe that our school is a learning environment for all the stakeholders - pupils, staff, parents and the wider community.
All pupils should have the entitlement to quality engaging and exciting teaching and learning. We expect our pupils to take ownership of their learning and to assess their own progress. To do this we have high expectations and aspirations for all our pupils
Personalised learning is about helping every child and young person to do better, which means tailoring their education to their individual needs, interests and aptitudes so as to fulfill their potential and giving them the motivation to be independent, lifelong ambitious learners.
We are proud of the relationships we have with our pupils, parents/carers and believe that it is central to the making our vision come true.
 
• Every child leaving Bannerman Road Community Academy and Children’s Centre should:
• Enjoy the journey of learning
• Have an open and enquiring mind
• Know and be proud of their own skills and positive qualities in others
• Be able to recognise and value skills and positive qualities in others
• Achieve the highest levels of literacy, numeracy and Information Technology, together with social and communication skills
• Enjoy physical and emotional wellbeing
• Be aware of their rights and responsibilities
• This will enable each child to enjoy and make the very best of the next steps in their journey
 
Our Mission
 
We will work with the parents/carers and the local community to provide:
• • The highest quality environment, where each child is safe to take risks and learn
• • Outstanding teaching
• • Stimulating learning experiences relevant to each child’s present and future needs
 
Our Values
 
Our work together is built on the following foundations:
• • Respect for others and each other
• • Ambition for ourselves and each other
• • Perseverance
• • Responsibility
• • Independence

Bannerman Road Triathletes!

 

On Monday, Acacia Tree Class went to the Brislington Entreprise College to take part in the Bloodhound Supersonic Car experience day. We learnt amazing facts about 3 different cars, one of which has a maximum speed of over 1000 miles per hour. Throughout the day, we took part in 3D printing, made cars from K-Nex, starting them using a pressurised oxygen pump and learnt how Engineers observe the movement and speed of their Supersonic cars using laptops and Dyna cars. We raced out K-nex cars and one group’s car (Ahmed Ahmed, Subhaan Tahir and Ikal Warsame) managed to travel from one side of the building to the other. They were awarded posters and will have their names engraved onto the side of the real Bloodhound SSC!

How hard was it to be elected?

Very hard.  I had to use lots of persuasive techniques.

What is the hardest part of your job?

It is never ending.  I work very long hours and travel a lot.

What do you like most about your job?

Meeting lots of new people.

Who funds the Government?

Taxes.

Do people live in the House of Commons?

Yes, the speaker lives there.

How do you support the Rights Respecting Award?

I have visited schools in the Middle East and am going to Bosnia with a group of children soon.

What charities do you support?

I shop in charity shops and I support cancer research.
