"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you". Ephesians 4:32
Welcome to our website! We are a small, but ambitious school located in beautiful West Somerset. We form part of the West Somerset Academies Trust, which consists of two Nurseries, Two Pre Schools, Four First Schools and Two Middle Schools. We cater for children aged 3-9 years and have six year groups from Nursery to Year 4. We have a Nursery and four classes and each class is assigned a class teacher responsible for the education and pastoral needs of the child for one year.
The spirit and heart of our very special community ensures the inclusion of every pupil across all ages and ability. At Old Cleeve Church of England First School a commitment to fulfilling the potential of every child can be found deeply rooted in every member of staff, all of whom share a joined up approach to each child's personal educational journey. We encourage a love of learning, the development of self-esteem and strive to make our curriculum fun, exciting and relevant. Happy, sociable children are successful learners.
As a Church School we aim to develop Christian values and foster a kind and caring attitude towards people as well as for their beliefs. We are committed to nurturing the whole child, mind, body and spirit and we make the most of our close links with the local family of churches.
Much of the emphasis at Old Cleeve is on breadth of experience, developing a balance of opportunities and a holistic approach to learning. Hand in hand with the children's academic development is a wide and varied extra-curricular programme aimed at developing confidence, creativity and individuality. All pupils have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument as well as enjoying weekly music lessons from a specialist. Sport is varied and fully inclusive with many children having the opportunity to represent the school and experience the buzz of competition and team dynamics. We listen to our children and ensure they get to try both sports they are familiar with and sports new to them.
We hope you will enjoy looking at our school website to give you a flavour of life at Old Cleeve and we welcome comments and feedback regarding the website. If you require any further information please contact the school direct - we look forward to hearing from you!
