Admissions Policy 2021/22 for consultation

“The governing body are consulting on new proposed admission arrangements for the 2021-22 school year. You are invited to provide any comments you may wish for consideration on the proposed arrangements by

9 December 2019. Final arrangements will be determined by 28 February 2020.

Comments should be sent to Mrs Mills at st.bernadette.p@bristol-schools.uk or contact the school.”

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We therefore recommend that you make a visit where we can show you the facilities on offer at St Bernadette Primary for your child and the care and support  we have for all our children.  Prospective parents can make an appointment to visit by contacting the school office. Each year we hold a welcome meeting for all parents and carers whose child is entering the school in the Reception class.


To apply for a school place at St Bernadette Primary you need to complete and return the Bristol application form to the Local Authority. Details of closing dates are published in advance and parents need to return their applications by the given dates to ensure that consideration for a place is given on time. Full details of our admissions can be found within our admission policy below. 

If you want to admit your child during a school year, please contact the school direct and we can inform you of the procedure.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Advice and Support Service Commissioning Consultation
Bristol City Council has a duty under the Children and Families Act 2014 to provide impartial, confidential and accessible information, advice and support to children and young people with special educational needs and/or a disability (SEND), and their parents or carers, regarding their education, and any health or social care needs related to their education. This support is currently delivered through Supportive Parents, Bristol’s SEND Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIAS service).
In partnership, Bristol City Council and Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group propose to re-commission Bristol’s SENDIAS service from 2019-2022 with an increased budget of £140,000 each year.
As part of The recommissioning process we are engaging in a public consultation ending on 8th January 2019 with professionals, children and young people with special educational needs and/or a disabilities, and their parents and carers, about how they would like this service to operate going forward.
You are welcome to feedback on the consultation using the following link: bristol.citizenspace.com/adults-children-and-education/sendias/
We would also ask that you encourage children, young people, parents and carers to complete the survey too: bristol.citizenspace.com/adults-children-and-education/sendias/
