Visit our new brand new Facebook page (search for “Christ Church Home Learning”) to support children’s learning when school is closed. Please send a friend request to the page so you can be accepted. This is the place to ask any questions about children’s learning.
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 that Christ Church has been certified by the equality charity Stonewall (www.stonewall.org.uk) as a “School Champion” in recognition of our ongoing work to promote dignity, diversity, respect and tolerance.
Prejudice and discrimination are wrong and will not be tolerated.
Please work with us to make sure that everyone feels safe, valued
and welcome at Christ Church C of E First School and Nursery.
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.

Unfortunately, Edwards & Ward (who, up to this point, have provided free school meal packed lunches from the kitchen at Selwood Academy) will not continue this service after Friday 3rd April 2020.
Instead, from Monday 6th April 2020, Somerset County Council will be providing a weekly food package (worth £15) for each child who is entitled to a free school meal. (Please note: this applies only to children who receive a FSM because of parent income or benefits. It does not apply to the universal free school lunches provided to all Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children.)
For example, if 2 children in your family attend Christ Church and are entitled to a free school meal (because of parent income or benefits) your family will receive 2 food packages each week. These can then be collected from school every Monday (apart from Easter Monday Bank Holiday - where this will then be provided on the Tuesday 14th April.)
If you have any questions please the school.
