If our school has to close due to bad weather all parents will be notified via text message as soon as the decision has been made that the site is not safe for children. However, we will ALWAYS try and keep the school open wherever possible. All of Bristol's school closures can be found on the Bristol City Council's school closure website.
Any news will be communicated by text message. If you do not recieve a text, please assume we are open as normal. This website will be updated every 5 minutes with live, rolling information. Please DO NOT phone the school to see if we are open. This blocks the line for a considerable amount of time. Instead, please check your phone for a text message, as well as checking the Bristol school's closure website. Announcements will also be made by local radio stations.

At Wansdyke, we believe in offering a wide range of clubs and extra-curricular activities to enhance children’s learning, promote positive relationships and create links with the community.
As much as possible, we endeavour to offer clubs at the lowest cost we can. When external providers are bought in, we negotiate the best prices we can. We do also contribute some of our Pupil Premium money to certain clubs, when we recognise that it will benefit FSM children.

We try and encourage parents to book medical appointments outside of school hours. If you do have to make an appointment for your child during school time, please fill out the information on the form below and return to the school office at least 24 hours before you collect your child from school.
You must provide the hospital letter, dental appointment card or Doctor's appointment card along with this form. If you have booked a Doctor's appointment over the telephone, the surgery will be able to provide you with an appointment card when you arrive at the surgery. Please then bring this into school the following day so we can keep it for our records.
Any other circumstances for removing your child early from school must be pre-arranged and authorised by the Head Teacher.
- Medical appointments in school time permission form (Pdf). As a school we need permission to be able to administer medicine to your child. Please ensure the medication is clearly labeled with the childs name, and the dosage given with a pharmacists label.
- Permissions to administer a prescribed medicine to your child form (Pdf). As a school we need to make sure we know what to do for each individual child if they were to need their inhaler. Therefore we ask that you fill out an asthma form with all the necessary information.
