Welcome to our website and to Nunney First School.
Nunney First School has a long and treasured history at the heart of the local community. Since its foundation in 1896 the school has introduced the children in its care to the wonders of learning, giving them the building blocks for an education that would prepare them and sustain them for the rest of their lives. Throughout these 120 years the aims of the school have always been to encourage pupils and staff to work to the highest possible standards, to encourage each and every one of them to fulfil their own potential and to nurture aspirations that open doors and create opportunities for all.
I am the Executive Headteacher of Nunney First School and of Hayesdown First School in Frome, both academy members of The Partnership Trust. Working with my leadership team of Mrs McCormack and Mrs Battersby, and with the teaching staff here at Nunney First School – Miss Murtagh, Mrs Baxter and Miss Bougourd – and the team of dedicated support staff, I am deeply committed to driving forward the improvements that are needed to make sure that Nunney’s traditional spirit of exceptional pastoral care is coupled with the highest standards of teaching and learning for pupils and staff.
I have been made to feel extremely welcome by the School’s Governing Body, staff and pupils and have been particularly touched by the welcome extended to me by members of the wider Nunney community. These introductions have helped me to quickly appreciate the wide-ranging talents in the local community and to experience first-hand, the commitment the community shows to its school and its desire to see it go from strength to strength.
Across nineteen years of school leadership I believe that I have acquired the knowledge, skills and experience required to enable me to work in partnership with the school’s incredibly dedicated staff team to provide a first class education for the children of Nunney. Together, we will work to ensure that Nunney First School is the school of choice for families living in its catchment area.
If you would like to visit the school to experience all we have to offer, I would be delighted to hear from you.
