A Nailsea school celebrated its 40th anniversary with a thanksgiving mass.
Bishop Declan Lang, from Clifton Diocese, visited St Francis Primary School, in Station Road, to lead the celebration.
The mass was attended by past and present pupils and staff as well as governors, parents and friends of the school.
A school spokesman said: "The children read some of the prayers in different languages to reflect both the diversity of the school community and the diversity of the church as whole.
"Some of the children wore national costume as a sign that we are all different but have come together from all four corners of the world to celebrate our school's anniversary.
