Our school’s inclusive
Christian vision

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.

This is what Ofsted inspectors say about Christ Church:

“ Parents are very positive about the time children spend in Nursery and in the Reception classes and have great confidence in the care their children receive ... The school’s commitment to keeping pupils safe is exemplary. The headteacher leads by example and all staff are highly vigilant ... The behaviour of pupils is good. The school is orderly and pupils are polite to adults and visitors ... Bullying is very rare and any concerns are quickly and effectively dealt with ... The most able pupils from all backgrounds make good progress ... Support programmes and progress for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities are good. ”

Who are we?
Where are we?
What makes us tick?

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.

Calling all parents and carers of Reception children in Diamond and Pearl Classes:

As partners in learning, Mrs L’Esteve (Diamond Class) and Miss Robinson (Pearl Class) would love to receive input from parents and carers for their child’s Learning Journey.

So, if your child achieves something special or does anything they are proud of – or if there is anything else you would like to share with your child’s teacher – please email the school office (sch.152@educ.somerset.gov.uk) FAO Mrs L’Esteve or Miss Robinson.

It would be a big help if you include a little information about any images you send. Thank you.

Keeping children safe during the COVID-19 pandemic

We have produced two special policies to help us keep children safe during school closure and reopening:

COVID-19 Annex 1 - is about safeguarding 

COVID-19 Annex 2 - is about pupil behaviour

Letters and Sounds for home and school

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.
