Not every school releases an album of eight original songs but,
with the help of Rocktopus, that is exactly what we have done!
1) Be a Global Neighbour
2) Everyone deserves a place to do their business
(the Toilet Twinning song)
3) I’ll be a good friend
4) Save our world today
5) Come learn with me!
6) Jesus helps us make good choices (the Zacchaeus song)
7) Say thank you! (the Ten Lepers song)
8) We can overcome our fears (the David and Goliath song)

We are proud that Christ Church is one of only a handful of first/primary schools outside London to have been certified by the equality charity Stonewall (www.stonewall.org.uk) as a “School Champion” in recognition of our ongoing work to promote dignity, diversity, respect and tolerance.
Prejudice and discrimination are wrong and will not be tolerated.
Please work with us to make sure that everyone feels safe, valued
and welcome at Christ Church C of E First School and Nursery.
We are delighted that our Sex and Relationships Education Policy
has received a thumbs up from both Stonewall and National
Education Union equalities officers.
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.
