Welcome to the Chewton Mendip primary school website


We are approaching the time of the year when we encounter snow! We do all that we can to keep the school open but there may be an instance where the conditions are such that it would be dangerous to travel. If school closure is a possibility please listen to Heart FM (Bristol/Somerset), BBC Somerset Radio 95.5FM or look at BBC Somerset website or Somerset Learning Platform (Google ‘Somerset Learning Platform’ and a list of closed schools is on a link on the right hand side of the screen). Please keep this information somewhere safe for future reference.


This website gives you information about our school: our values and aims, our curriculum, how the school is organised and our partnership with parents.

Our ethos is based around developing effective learners and happy, thoughtful and responsible citizens.

The school is located in the centre of Chewton Mendip conservation area next to the beautiful Norman Parish Church. It is set in attractive grounds overlooking the Mendip countryside.

The school offers a range of outdoor sport and recreational facilities comprising a sports/playing field, a grass area with outdoor apparatus and two hard surfaced playgrounds. We also have a conservation area and a heated outdoor swimming pool. See our Gallery
