Overview

Bristol City Council is proposing to close St Michael’s on the Mount and St George Primary Schools and open a combined school on the site of St Michael’s.  The new school is proposed to open on 1st September 2020.

The full proposals and associated statutory notice can be viewed at the bottom of this page.

Why We Are Consulting

The law requires the publication of statutory proposals in order to close the existing schools and replace them with a new school. 

Both schools have experenced falling rolls and pupil forecasting suggests that this will not change in the short to medium term.  School governors have consulted parents and staff of both schools prior to the publication of these proposals. 

Following consultation, governors have concluded that maintaining both school sites is unsustainable. A one form entry school on a single site will help to protect future education provision in the area.

What Happens Next

Views submitted in response to the proposals will be considered by Bristol City Council.  A final decsion will be made by the Cabinet in March 2020.
