Our Aims and Vision

“The seed fell into good ground and grew up increasing and yielding thirty, sixty and a hundred times as much” Mark 4:8

We strive to be that ‘good ground’ where our children can grow in knowledge, skills and wisdom, with hope, aspiration, dignity and respect. Our ambition is that they can thrive and contribute to their communities and live well together. We embrace the Church of England’s vision for education that all children will have “life in all its fullness” (John 10:10)

Our Setting

We are a Voluntary Aided Church of England School, owned by the Church Authorities and maintained by the Local Education Authority. We have around 140 children on roll aged 4-11, the number of pupils varying slightly from year to year.

The Red Room playgroup is on site and is our main feeder pre-school.

The school is 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 consists of two buildings; the infants’ building, built in 1992, contains two classrooms with immediate access to an enclosed outside patio area, and a large well equipped sports/assembly hall.

The original Victorian building, which has been extensively refurbished, contains three junior classrooms, a full computer suite, library, resources area, staff room and administration offices. Steps around a ‘quiet’ garden, which is used as an outdoor classroom, link the two buildings.

The school offers a range of outdoor sport and recreational facilities comprising of 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.
