Welcome to Olveston CEVC Primary School

Rooted in Love

Kindness, Friendship, Happiness, Respect, Courage and Success 

Olveston CEVC Primary School sits at the heart of the South Gloucestershire countryside, in the quintessentially English village of Olveston. The school is surrounded by rolling green fields and farmland, yet is only moments away from major commuter links such as the M48 and M4. The school has a rich history and has been part of village since 1836.  The school is proud to have retained its character, from the old school bell that sits above the original infant school to stonewalls that hug the school boundary. 

As a Church of England school we are proud of our role in helping guide our children through their educations and lives.  The school has strong links with our local church - St. Mary's, which ensures that the school remains at the heart of village life. We are a Christian community; happy, welcoming and caring and our children understand that mistakes are part of getting it right and sometimes you need to forgive and try again.

Olveston is a school where children have a love of learning, where expectations are high but more importantly every child and adult is valued as an individual; each recognised for their uniqueness.  During their time with us, interests and talents will be developed. Our goal is that children leave us with 'the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence'. They will be empowered to live their own lives and have resilience to face a rapidly changing world.

Teaching staff at Olveston CEVC Primary School are dedicated to providing creative yet purposeful learning experiences which are steered by the children - pupil voice is at the centre of decision making; greater ownership, greater engagement.

In our 2018 Ofsted Inspections we achieved the   grade of  'Good +'. In 2016, the school also received a SIAMS 'Outstanding' rating (click the logo below).We pride ourselves in developing very good relationships with our parents and families. We believe that children learn best when parents and school work together in partnership.

School Closure for Face-to-face learning

Due to the Governments announcement at 8.00pm this evening the school must close for face-to-face learning and switch to remote learning from Tuesday 5th January 2021. (School will not be open on the 5.1.21)

Please check your email as we are likely to be sending updates over the next few days regarding Key Worker provision and remote learning.

Can we remind parents that our core offer for remote learning will run through Google Classrooms. You will have received an email from the school office earlier this term with all of your individual log on details.   

For urgent issues please email the school office but please be aware we are likely to take a little time to respond to non-urgent queries. 

Thank you for your support during this very difficult time.



Reception class: 2021 - 2022

In-line with Covid -19 measures the school is currently unable to hold tours.  Prior to the latest Government lockdown we were able to offer families one-to-one tours of our beautiful school. Unfortunately, guidance states that schools are not to offer any sort of in-person tour at the moment. Our hope is, that once it is safe to do so, we will continue with our socially distanced tours.


While we are unable to hold tours in person we have set up a page on our website for a 'Virtual tour'. Click the link below for more details.
