Welcome to Nunney First School

… a village school at the heart of its community where staff skillfully manage time and space to enable children to develop their academic, spiritual, moral, social and physical gifts and talents in a supportive and stimulating learning environment.

We believe that every child, with the right support, can achieve great things. Each child plays a valuable part in the daily life of our school, our local community and beyond. Our highly committed and skilled staff work hard to create an inspiring and creative space for children to achieve their very best in all learning experiences. We have a project based approach to learning and our curriculum is rooted in hands-on, active enquiry that is supported by high quality teaching of the core English, Maths, Science and Computing Skills that sit at the heart of our curriculum. At Nunney First School we aspire to provide a first class education for the children of Nunney and the surrounding area and strive to ensure that Nunney First School is the school of choice for families living in its catchment area.
