‘The magic and wonder of childhood’ at Frampton Cotterell C of E Primary School


A hive of activity during the summer months at Frampton Cotterell CE Primary School has ensured that the outdoor learning spaces have been enhanced with the addition of new play equipment.

With generous funding from South Gloucestershire Local Authority, the Friends of Frampton Parent Association and the Oscars Before and After School Club the existing play spaces have been transformed. A new and impressive climbing zone, offers a variety of climbing, traversing and physical activities with a weather friendly astro turf enhancing play opportunities in damper conditions.

In addition, the outdoor area for Early Years and KS1 children now features a wooden ‘Cotterell Castle’ for our knights and princesses as well as an additional teaching and learning space. This is an exceptional space for the children to learn in the natural environment and embrace the magic and wonder of childhood.  A rustic nature kitchen created by one of our parents, from the willow tree stump ensures our little chefs can serve yummy mud ‘fairy’ pies and magical potions. One child has even started his own ‘Bug Club’, where they share their fascination and interest for observing wildlife with their friends.

To the delight of our budding actors and actresses we also have created a wooden stage and seating area around a tree for performances. The ground has been covered in safe matting which will extend the use of this extraordinary natural play space all year round.

Please take a look at our School Prospectus which I hope will give you lots of information to help you choose Frampton Cotterell CofE Primary School for your child.
