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.

Our Christian vision and values shape all we do,
including our approach to managing children's behaviour.

Governors' Statement of Behaviour Principles.


From Ofsted 2022: 

“ Most staff are dedicated and care deeply about pupils ”

Who are we?
Where are we?
How do we transform lives?

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 inclusive first school in Somerset.

Christ Church is a Somerset County Council 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 compassionate, kind and honest) every bit as much as academic effort (hard work, progress and attainment).

As a distinctively Christian school, we aim to give children the joy, hope and ambition to make the world a better place. Our pupils have regular opportunitiesto engage in social action projects (which pupils themselves have identified) allowing them to become advocates of change, to challenge injustice and inequality, and develop a  concern for others in their community and the wider world.

For example, our pupils have taken action on climate change; they have opposed prejudice and discrimination; they have written to the Prime Minister about homelessness, food poverty and modern day slavery; and they have raised money to build new school toilets in other countries.

We think it is important for all pupils to develop the confidence to speak up and the initiative to change things whenever they see something unfair or wrong.

In short, Christ Church is relevant, life-changing and fun!
