Changes to Bowsland Green Primary School

Consultation on the proposal to reduce the admission number for Bowsland Green Primary School from September 2023

In consultation with the Governing Body, South Gloucestershire Council is proposing to reduce the admission number for Bowsland Green Primary School.  

It is proposed to reduce the admission number from 45 to 30 with affect from 1 September 2023.

The proposal will bring the admission number more closely in line with recent and anticipated admissions to the school and will apply to new applications received for first admission to the Reception class in September 2023. The new admission number will age through the school and reach 30 across the age range over a period of 7 years.

No other alterations to the admission arrangements at the school are proposed and children currently attending the school will remain on roll.

Any comment on this proposal may be sent to South Gloucestershire Council by email to or by post at the following address:

The closing date for responses is 17 December 2021. All responses to the consultation will be included in the Council’s annual report on admission arrangements and considered by the Council’s Cabinet in March 2022. Any changes will be published in the Admission to Schools booklet in September 2022.

This consultation has now closed and we are analysing the results, which will be published here in due course.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
