School Relevant Area Consultation

Bristol City Council is required to determine the area that admission authorities in Bristol should use when consulting on school admission arrangements for 2020 until 2022.

For Bristol, as an admissions authority, the ‘relevant area’ being consulted on is the whole city (City of Bristol Local Authority area). 

For primary academies and other own admission authority primary schools the Relevant Area will be the School Places Planning Area in which the school is located.  Included below is a list of all Bristol primary schools according to their School Places Planning area.

For Secondary schools it will be the whole city (City of Bristol Local Authority area).

Further details, including a list of the primary school areas along with a map, can be found on the attached document.

Advocacy and HealthWatch Commissioning consultation

Bristol has a range of formal and informal advocacy services delivered across the city. These advocacy services help citizens say what they want from services such as adult care & support, children’s services and health and mental health services and it helps influence how these services are delivered to meet citizen’s needs.

Advocacy services are due to be recommissioned for the period April 2019 to March 2024. The  proposed Commissioning Plan for recommissioning Advocacy services sets out Bristol City Council’s (BCC) requirements and expectations of providers relating to this commissioning process. The audience for this paper includes general public, stakeholders, and potential bidders to deliver the service.

We’ll be working consulting with individuals, groups and organisations that are involved with Advocacy and HealthWatch services in Bristol to seek their views on the best options going forward.

The specific services included in this round of recommissioning are:

•Local HealthWatch

•NHS and Social Care & Complaints Procedure Advocacy (IHCCAS)

•Independent Mental Health Advocacy (IMHA)

•Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA)

•Independent Care Act Advocacy (ICAA)

•Care Management Advocacy Project (CMAP)

•BME Advocacy

•Outreach Advocacy

•In-patient Advocacy
