The school provides the local football club with an alternative pitch for their weekend matches when they are unable to play at the recreation ground due to water logged pitches.
Both of our major PTFA events (the summer fete and Bonfire night) are part of the village calendar. These are very effective fund raisers for the school and enjoyed by all age groups
We have a link with the local horticultural Society who have provided us with a number of raised beds, gardening equipment and compost. The children have enjoyed growing a selection of vegetables and flowers. We are so lucky to have our own kitchen on site which ensured the produce could be used on the very same day for the children’s school meals.
The local Parish church runs an extremely popular Monday Club which takes place after school at the Church Hall from 3.30 to 4.45pm. Helpers collect the children from the school and escort them to the Hall where they take part in age appropriate activities.
The school also participates in services of celebration such as Christingle, Remembrance Day and Eductaion Sunday.
Various local clergy lead assemblies on a Thursday morning. For this assembly children are split into Key Stages and have their assembly on alternate weeks. They enjoy the variety of different themes and meeting people from the local community.
The school choir is now renowned within the local community and is welcomed at many local events. This year they have been asked to perform at the Mendip Society evening function, St Monica’s (Sandford), The Senior citizens Christmas lunch, the carol and christingle services at St James Church, a Jessie May charity concert at the Colston Hall, a Jubilee concert at the Weston Playhouse with the Goldies.
The school is very fortunate to have a large number of parents and members of the community who volunteer to come into school and help with a wide range of activities such as art & crafts, reading and working with individuals. To show our appreciation the volunteers are invited to our summer and Christmas produtions and Cream teas and Sherry and mince pies.
The school has strong links to the Rainbow Montessori Nursery and a number of children transfer from the Nursey to our Foundation Class. The Nursery are also invited to watch the KS1 children perform their Nativity.
