Proposals for Frenchay Church of England Primary School

Have your say on proposals to enlarge Frenchay Church of England Primary School.

In line with the local community’s aspiration to provide one school for Frenchay, the council is consulting on the proposal to enlarge Frenchay CE Primary School to provide a total of up to 420 primary school places.  It is proposed to achieve this by moving the existing school to a new site secured on the former Frenchay Hospital site. Under this proposal, Frenchay CE Primary School would operate from the new site/buildings from 1 September 2020. Children on roll at Frenchay CE Primary School would continue to attend Frenchay CE Primary School in new purpose built accommodation from September 2020. Under Government regulations, the proposal to expand Frenchay CE Primary School requires a consultation giving parents, carers and the community an opportunity to share their thoughts on the proposed expansion.

How you can have your say:

  • Come along to a drop-in event  planned on Thursday 24 May 2018 at 4.15pm – 6pm at Frenchay Village Hall, Beckspool Road, Frenchay BS16 1NU. The drop-in event will provide parents and carers with the opportunity to discuss and comment on the proposals and ask questions.
  • You can read the proposal and submit your comments by completing the questionnaire at the end of the document and sending it by email to: or by post to Tanya Smith, Strategic Lead – School Place Planning, Department for Children, Adults and Health, PO Box 1955, Bristol BS37 0DE. Please ensure that your comments reach the council by Friday 1 June 2018

Following the drop-in session, your comments will be used to inform the next stage of the process. If agreed, the Council will undertake the legal process for enlarging Frenchay CE Primary School. It is proposed that the Council will take a final decision by the end of the current academic year 2017/2018.
