The guide gives a rundown of the top primary schools in the district, which has been created by Bristol Live.

St Peter's Primary School, in Portishead, was named the top-ranking school in the
area, followed by Trinity
Primary School, which is also in town.

Schools in chronological order after the two Portishead primaries include Kingshill Church School, in Nailsea, Ashcombe Primary School, in Weston, and Backwell Junior School.

The primaries' ratings are based on percentages of attainment, teaching, progress and attendance for each school, and the guide is comprised from local government data.

Headteacher at St Peter's, Sharon Roberts, said: "We are delighted to have been recognised by the Real Schools Guide 2020.

"Our school vision strives for excellence in all we do, who we are and in our service with others, and we have certainly seen this in our results."

Headteacher at Trinity, Sandy Nickells, said: "It is such a privilege to work with our
young people and we are proud
to see them flourish and
achieve.

"A huge thank you to our partners, parents, carers, governors and churches for their involvement and support, as well as the dedication and expertise provided by the Trinity team."
