Our Vision Statement
"Together, with God's love, we learn, nurture and grow, without limits."

Letter from the Headteacher of Frome Valley First School, Ms Julie Thorp:


Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family on behalf of the staff and Governors of Frome Valley CE  First School. I feel very privileged to be the Headteacher of such a lovely school within the community of Crossways.

Everyone involved in the life of the school work together as a team to provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment in which your child can learn, grow and flourish. We aim to nurture all children as individuals, enabling them to achieve their full potential and prepare them for the years that lie ahead as they grow into young adults. At the heart of our school is the belief that we all share a vision and values that help us to be responsible, respectful and caring members of society. We are very proud of the Christian ethos of our school and our belief that citizenship and a sense of community are as important as academic achievements. We particularly focus on mental wellbeing within our school and, as a  school with three Trauma Informed Schools Practitioners, we support individual children that require extra support. Our school values relationships and pupils knowing that there is an emotionally available adult to help them when they are upset or unhappy.

We encourage parents to join in the vital partnership with the school that enables us to provide the best possible start to your child’s education.

We look forward to welcoming your child to our school.

Yours sincerely,

Julie Thorp
