A school in Nailsea is inviting former staff, pupils and governors to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

Golden Valley Primary School, in Nailsea Park, has revealed plans to commemorate the landmark by holding an open day on Saturday from 2-4pm when former staff and families will be welcomed back to school.

People will be able to view displays of photos from the archives, original log books and plans of the school.

Tours of the building will be led by house captains and the parent teacher association (PTA) will be serving refreshments.

The school has undergone a number of building projects over the years and it has upped its intake from 250 to 420 pupils.

The two previous headteachers, Richard Brock and Alan Shaw, will also be taking assemblies during the week to share memories and photos with the children.
