Community Links

Nunney First School has strong community links both in the village and more widely in the Frome area.

We link to Nunney Parish Council and the Nunney Community Association (NCA), providing regular updates on events at our school and supporting the community to build relationships with our families.

Local residents with a knowledge of the history of the school, the village and the surrounding area are frequent visitors to the school. The children make regular visits to the village to explore the castle, other features of the village and All Saints Church in order to enhance their learning and understanding of their local area.

Members of the Nunney Flower Show Association are active volunteers in the Mucky Pups gardening facility. In 2016 the Flower Show was held on the school site as part of the community helping to celebrate the school’s 120th anniversary.  The Nunney Flower Show Association co-ordinates with the school when creating categories for children’s prizes to ensure that they are inclusive and that children are able to submit entries.

We endeavour to include at least two community visitors per half term in our whole school assemblies, whether enhancing our curriculum, encouraging British Values or supporting our events.  These visitors enable children to appreciate a wider range of careers, experience authentic life stories and engage in their wider community.

Nunney First School is part of the Frome Learning Parntership, a group of local schools with shared goals for all local children.  Together, we organise larger events and use our joint purchasing power to ensure value for money on activities.  As a group, we are also responsible for alternative provision for those learners who are struggling to access mainstream education.
