Chair of Governor's Announcement - Appointment of the Principal
I am delighted to announce that Ms Spence has been appointed as the Principal for May Park Primary School, on a permanent basis. Previously on secondment from Fairfield High School where she was Deputy Head, Ms Spence has played a pivotal role in laying the foundations for rapid improvements in teaching, learning and making the most of our fantastic facilities at May Park. Her appointment is an acknowledgement of her leadership and dedication over the past two years. Her enthusiasm and motivation have helped the whole school team to rise to the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic.
As we look forward to returning to near-normality, I am sure that the whole May Park family are as delighted as the Local Governors and the Trust that Ms Spence will be leading us through the next phase of our work to make May Park the school that we know it can be, and that our community deserves.
Chair of Governors
Welcome to May Park Primary School
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to May Park Primary School, a 3-11 community academy in East Central Bristol and proud member of the Excalibur Academies Trust. We are diverse and vibrant three form entry primary school with a stimulating nursery set in fantastic grounds. Our modern, purpose-built buildings and our extensive outdoor space enable our children unique opportunities to use their creative minds as they explore the woods, Savannah, field and multi-use games area.
At May Park our highly experienced teachers and staff are committed to providing a nurturing environment so that all of our children succeed. By offering an inspiring curriculum, we expect our children to think differently: taking risks with their learning, embracing uncertainty, problem solving, making connections and playing with possibilities.
May Park joined the Excalibur Academies Trust on the 1st September 2019. The Trust aims to raise educational standards, value and develop people and to ensure sustainability form the pillars on which our new academy is formed.
The aim of our new curriculum will be to tap into our local community and expose our children to the cultural richness of Bristol whilst still keeping the focus on improving the core, Reading, Writing and Mathematics. We want to cultivate and nurture the values of creativity and curiosity – a thirst for knowledge in all of our children.
Our website aims to give you a glimpse of what May Park has to offer alongside key information. If you are prospective parent considering us for an admission place for your child, it would be my pleasure to welcome you at our school in person.
Ms Vanetta Spence
