CHEDDAR FIRST SCHOOL

An Good First School in the heart of the community of Cheddar.
Joined the Trust April 1st 2020.

Cheddar First School serves children aged between four and nine years old. The children are divided into nine classes in this successful village school. We also welcome children from six months in our on-site Preschool.


We feel privileged to work with young, enthusiastic learners and want to make their time with us as exciting and productive as possible. Working together with parents, we hope to help all children build upon their individual strengths and develop their personal skills, whatever their starting points. We aim to be a school where people feel welcome and valued and where children can develop the confidence and independence necessary for personal success.


We have a dedicated and enthusiastic team of teaching and non-teaching staff who work with governors and parents to provide all children with a broad, stimulating and relevant education within a calm and purposeful learning environment.


We are fortunate in having a purpose built school with a wide range of facilities, such as an ICT suite, library and studio room. We have a wonderful outdoor environment including a ‘Forest school’ area, pond and garden areas as well as a large field. These outdoor spaces are used for a wide variety of learning experiences for all age groups. The playground has recently been extensively refurbished to promote positive play and physical and creative challenges for all of the children.


Cheddar First Preschool is located in the school grounds and shares our wealth of facilities. Foundation stage staff work closely with them and other local nurseries to ensure our youngest learners have a smooth transition into school.
