Christ Church responds
to national lockdown 2021 

Now that there is a national lockdown – and in the light of new strains of COVID, increasing numbers of cases in Mendip and rising hospital admissions locally – Christ Church's staff are supporting home learning for most pupils. We want to help save the NHS and save lives.

Letter to parents of children of key workers 
and/or vulnerable children. (Dated 4/1/21)

Letter to parents of all other children
who will now do their learning at home. (Dated 4/1/21)

How long will this continue?
This arrangement will continue until the lockdown ends and SAGE, the UK Government and education unions agree that it is safe to reopen the school fully to all pupils.

What is our priority?
Our priority throughout this pandemic has been to keep all children and adults as safe as we can. Thank you for helping us to do this.

Thank you for your messages
of sympathy and support

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.
