THANK YOU pupils and their families. Thank you for social distancing and hand washing. Stay safe!

THANK YOU to Fair Frome and local shops and restaurants for your generous food donations!
We want Christ Church to be a shining example of Jesus' love and kindness. We are an inclusive Christian learning community where everyone is welcome and valued, and all are inspired to be the best they can be. We want all children to thrive and flourish in every way, developing a love of learning, discovering their unique strengths and talents, and growing in character and confidence so that their light shines brightly for all to see.
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.

As mentioned in the letter sent out last week we are planning to organise some special end-of-year activities for our Year 4 pupils. Government guidance has now confirmed we can do this at the end of the summer term.
These would be afternoon only sessions and would include:
* A campfire and games (instead of camp).
* A barbecue and sports (instead of the leavers’ party and sports day).
* A leavers’ activity afternoon and presentation (instead of a leavers’ assembly).
These would need to be in small groups and social distancing would also be needed. We are unfortunately also unable to have parents on site for these. Please could you confirm whether or not you would like your Year 4 child to attend these sessions by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 18 June.

We have produced two special policies to help us keep children safe during school closure and reopening:
All lessons are introduced by celebrities, including children’s TV presenters, which adds an exciting addition to the lessons. A new phonics lesson is uploaded every day, Monday to Friday. After upload, each lesson is then archived and available to watch at any time. There are three sets of daily lessons to choose from and we suggest your child starts with one set of lessons most suitable to their year group and reading ability. If you’re not sure which lessons your child should watch or your child finds the lessons too difficult, then please contact your child's class teacher. They will be able to recommend which lessons are the most appropriate for your child.
These organisations offer help and advice to people suffering domestic abuse:
