Working with the local community

WORKING WITH OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY

North Cadbury Parish.

It is the policy of this school to develop in our children a sense of belonging to a community and to understand the contributions they might make now and in the future and to this end we are establishing strong links with the community both locally and in the wider sense.

  • Our Church of England status is very important to our school identity. Christian values underpin our ethos and extend throughout our school community. We have a good working partnership with St Michael’s Church and undertake many joint activities with the Parish and the Diocese including Christmas, Easter and Ascension Celebrations.  Our rector is an active part of our school community.
  • Our community police officer regularly works in school with children.
  • The children have a local voice through the Parish Council and ensure that they are heard.
  • We work in partnership with local organisations like the Horticultural Society and the village shop.
  • Summer and Winter Fetes involve the whole community.
  • The children run Fair Trade and recycling events that are open to the wider community.
  • Members of the community are increasingly offering their particular talents to work in school with the children.
  • PTAFA social events held in the school and neighbouring villages welcome friends from within the local community.
  • Friends from the Camelot villages join the children for an informal ‘Mince Pie and Carol singing’ party every December.
  • Our children’s choir travels around the community to sing at Residential Homes for the elderly and local groups.
  • We take every opportunity for the children to work within a real life context and we have established strong links with the local museums, emergency and health services, vets, tourist centres and leisure centres, local supermarkets and restaurants.

We always welcome suggestions as to how we may extend our links with the local community.
