It is important to emphasise that only in extreme circumstances will Christ Church close. We will always try to keep the school open come rain, shine or blizzard. But … we may have to close if it has become too cold in school/nursery or too risky for children, staff and parents to travel safely to and from Christ Church. We will attempt to alert you in one or more of the following ways:
BBC Somerset: 95.5FM or 1566AM
Heart FM: 96.5/97.1 or 102.6FM
The school telephone will operate from 9.00–10.00am
and 3.00–4.00pm each day; the number is 01373 463781.
Do we have your up-to-date mobile number?

We are proud that Christ Church is one of only a handful of first/primary schools outside London to have been certified by the equality charity Stonewall (www.stonewall.org.uk) as a “Diversity Champion”.
Prejudice and discrimination are wrong and will not be tolerated. Please work with us to make sure that everyone feels safe, respected, valued and welcome at Christ Church C of E First School and Nursery.
This is what Ofsted inspectors say about Christ Church:
We are proud of our school and the community it serves. We trust this website gives you a flavour of who we are, what we do and why Christ Church C of E First School really is the friendliest, most nurturing, most exciting, most ambitious first school in Somerset.
Christ Church is a Somerset County Council co-educational day school and nursery for children aged two to nine. Situated in inspiring and spacious school grounds in the south of the market town of Frome, less than ten miles from Longleat Safari Park, Christ Church provides an idyllic environment for children’s early physical, intellectual, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
We believe a great school overflows with the sound of cheerful children playing and learning with their friends. Yes, academic standards are important and learning is at the heart of all that we do, and, like other schools, we want every girl and boy to achieve their academic potential. But, at Christ Church, we believe a first class education should value excellent character (being kind, friendly and honest) every bit as much as academic effort (hard work, progress and attainment). Equally importantly: we believe school should be fun.
