A Weston primary school has been recognised for its dedication to pupils’ learning, well-being and self-esteem.

Bournville Primary School, in Selworthy Road, has been awarded a national accolade by Achievement for All (AfA), an education charity which aims to improve opportunities and outcomes for children and young people.

The Quality Lead award recognised the work the school had done to improve its pupils’ progress in reading, writing and maths.

The primary school has been working in partnership with the charity since 2011 and has seen a huge improvement in many aspects of its day-to-day running.

The school has worked closely with parents and carers on children’s targets and more one-to-one guidance has been made available to the pupils.

Headteacher Adam Matthews said: “AfA has played a key part in our school improvement journey. The programme has enabled us to focus on our vulnerable learners and what they need to achieve their potential.

“We are delighted and proud to receive the Quality Lead award as it represents the hard work and dedication of our whole school towards improving outcomes for all of our children.”
