Charlotte welcomes plans to create new primary school in Horfield

Charlotte Leslie has given her support to an “inspiring” project to create a much-needed new primary school in Horfield.

Charlotte, the local MP for Bristol North West, gave her enthusiastic backing to the scheme to merge Orchard School Bristol and Filton Avenue Infant School to create a brand new school.

The school, which expects to have its first intake of pupils in September 2012, will be located on the existing Orchard School Bristol site, which will help ensure costs will be kept to a minimum.

The creation of the new school comes as Bristol City Council continues to seek ways to reduce the shortage of primary school places.

Charlotte highlights the urgent need for increased local primary school places

Charlotte, our Bristol North West MP, has raised the imperative need for more funding to tackle the worrying school place crisis as soon as possible.

Charlotte, who has a long-standing reputation as a local education champion, recently took part in a high-level meeting with Schools Minister Nick Gibb to raise the issue of school places across Bristol.

Following the meeting, Charlotte also highlighted the need for more primary school places in the city during a debate in Westminster.

Charlotte said: “There is a desperate need for more primary school places across Bristol, and in our constituency.

“It is so important to both parents and their children that they are able to secure a local school place and not be faced with the very real worry that this may not be the case.
