School Description

This is an average-sized junior school. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for children in the care of the local authority and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals) is much lower than the national average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs on the school roll is about 9%. A similar proportion have more severe needs or have a statement of special educational needs. This is lower than that found in most schools. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. The school meets the government’s floor standards, which set minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics in Year 6. Two pupils attend Three Ways Special School in Bath on a part-time basis for one or two days each week. Another child attends L'Ecole Française de Bristol for one day each week.

Widcombe CofE Junior School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Warm and caring school”
"> My son attended Widcombe juniors, although only for a short time, but during our time there we found it a warm and caring school with a fantastic music programme and an active parent body. His teacher in Y3 was energetic and responsive to parents. He made great friends there that he still keeps in touch with. Only drawback was no school meals as there isn't a kitchen on site.
"> Victoria, nope - there is no automatic guarantee of a place at the Juniors if you are at the Infants. They are different schools with different funding; the Junior is a C of E Voluntary Aided; the infants isn't.
"> I am looking at this school for my son. Does anyone know if infant school admission automatically guarantees entry to Widcombe Junior School or do you have to reapply?
