Welcome to May Park Primary School
Dear Parents and Carers,
It is my pleasure to welcome you back to a new school year. Following quite a long and occasionally
difficult conversion, we officially became a part of the Excalibur Academies Trust on the 1st of
September. This now makes us the 12th school in a trust that spans Bristol, Wiltshire and West
We begin our journey this year by working on an exciting new curriculum with our partners:
Lighting Up Learning. The aim of our new curriculum will be to tap into our local community and
expose our children to the cultural richness of Bristol.
Over the last year, May Park has seen some significant improvements in academic achievement —
especially in Year 1 and Year 2. Now, as a part of the Excalibur Academies Trust, we will benefit
from the shared expertise of our primary and secondary school colleagues in order to further
accelerate our progress. In particular, we will focus on getting our pupils 'secondary ready' in order
to build their resilience in the transfer to ‘big' school.
In addition to working with our children, trust schools, and partners, we are looking forward to
working closely with you. As our passionate school champions, we will look to you for support and
ideas on how we can improve and celebrate everything that makes May Park unique.
I look forward to meeting you all soon!
