Children and staff at Horfield Church of England Primary School are celebrating because they have been shortlisted to receive an award. 

The UKLA Literacy School of the Year Roll of Honour celebrates schools providing rich, exciting, innovative curriculums in English whilst achieving really good outcomes for their pupils. 

From a number of strong submissions, Horfield was one of only four schools in the country to be selected for the Roll of Honour 2017.  

 Other schools shortlisted were from Aberdeen, Brixton and East Ham.

Jenny Taylor, head teacher at Horfield, commented: “The whole staff team is committed to inspiring one another by sharing innovative practice. This enables a thriving, embedded approach across the school which includes extensive use of all that we have available to us, such as our school grounds; these are used by staff to provide stimulating, inspirational language experiences for all of the children.”

The winning school will be announced on 1 July 2017 at the UKLA International Conference, University of Strathclyde.
