The main school building was built in 1860 from money donated by Mary Taunton whose initials appear on the school logo. This building contains the main hall and the library. Over the years two further classrooms have been added and a few years ago a third new classroom was built.
We are a voluntary controlled school which means that the Church of England is represented on the Governing Body. We have adapted the words of 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 for our school values and vision.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
At the time of writing there are eighty-five 4 to 11 year old boys and girls in the school. This gives the opportunity for the school to have a warm family atmosphere in which the children and staff get to know each other well.
The children are taught within four class groups usually containing two year groups. We are a well resourced school with a high level of adult support to facilitate individual and small group work.
The school has a wrap around care provision and offers a Breakfast Club from 8.00am daily and an After School Club from 3.15pm to 5.30 pm daily.
The school also has a hot meal service provided by Dinkymeals Catering.
We are members of the Quantock Group (linked with Haygrove Secondary School and Otterhampton, Cannington, Nether Stowey, St Mary's, Enmore and Stogursey Primary Schools). This gives us the opportunity to share teacher expertise and expensive equipment among the schools. The children work together on a variety of topics throughout the year.
You are warmly invited to visit our school. You will form a far clearer impression of the school from seeing us at work and play.
