Dear parents/ carers,

Our Perform Their Socks Off dance performance is fast approaching and I would like to let you know more about the arrangements for this after school event. 

Firstly, the show begins at 6.30pm and your child will need to be dropped off at the Playhouse from 5.15pm. The show will end at approx. 7.30pm. Tickets will be available from or 01934 645544. The doors will be open to the audience no earlier than 6:00 pm. The tickets go on sale today, Friday 1st March and we are performing on Friday 26th April. 

After the performances, you will be able to collect your child from the stage door. Students cannot leave through the theatre. The children will require a costume, which will be black shorts, leggings or trousers and a colourful shirt. They will also need colourful socks for the finale!

Thank you for your understanding and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any more questions,

Mr Farmer

It is time to ask our musicians to enter Banwell Primary School’s ‘Musician of the Year’ competition. It will take place on Wednesday 20th March 2024. Results will be given on Friday 22nd March 2024.
We are looking for children in Key Stage Two who would like to enter the competition – either singing acapella / accompanied or playing a musical instrument.
If your child would like to enter, whether as a solo or in a group with others, please email the school office on and include the following information;
• Child / children who will be performing.
• Title of the song / piece of music.
• What instrument they will be playing (voice or instrument …etc).
It is important that your child is prepared for the competition, has been able to rehearse their performance at home and brings their music / instruments to school on the day.
In order to allow us to gather a list of performers and ensure we have all accompanying music…etc, the closing date for entries will be Friday 8th March 2024.
Yours sincerely,
Sarah Dockerty

Dear parents/ carers,

Next week, year six have two exciting events happening. On Wednesday 13th December, at 1.30pm to 3pm, we will be having our geography field trip for the term. We are looking at the influence of Greek architecture and design on the village of Banwell. On Thursday 14th December, the class are going to Lifeskills in Bristol. Here the children will learn about looking after themselves and each other in different life scenarios. For this trip, we require all children to be in school by 8.30am and take with them a packed lunch and drink.


If you are able to help year six on either activity, please contact the school office or myself by Monday 11th December.

 * National Christmas Jumper Day tomorrow (Thursday 7th Dec) - Children can come in non school uniform with their Christmas Jumpers. * Thank you 
Email 10/10/23

Our Key Stage 2 field trips this term will be focusing on mapping in the local area.  We will be walking along roads within Banwell and will take part in a number of activities on the school site.  The field trips will take place on Tuesday 17th October (Butterfly Class) and Friday 20th October (Firefly Class and Cricket Class).  On those days:


  • children should come into school wearing school uniform with wellington boots or a change of shoes suitable for walking across wet grass
  • children should bring a spare pair of dry socks
  • lunch will be in the dining hall at the same time as usual - there is no need to change lunch arrangements
  • we will start and finish school at the same times as usual

All children in years 3-6 take part in field trips every term.  This is a key part of our geography curriculum offer.

Best wishes

Paul Davis
