Welcome to Dunster First School
"The school has a charming community feel to it and the emphasis on teaching kindness is evident throughout. I feel my child is developing skills beyond pure academic skills and he has been very happy.’
Dunster First School is a haven of learning nestled in the picturesque village of Dunster in Somerset, UK. Surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, our historic school is privileged to be immersed in the beauty of local woodland, moorland, and the rich heritage of Dunster Castle. As a happy, kind, and caring school, we are proud to be at the heart of our supportive community, unwavering in our commitment to place children at the centre of all we do.
At Dunster First School, we recognise the incredible attributes our children possess - their beauty, intelligence, humour, creativity, thoughtfulness, and intuition. We believe in celebrating their uniqueness and nurturing their potential so that they can find their element, be truly happy, and excel. Our dedicated staff live by a simple yet powerful mantra: "What is best for the children."
We are passionate about fostering a family ethos and embedding our core values throughout the entire school. We embrace sustainability, working diligently to protect and preserve our planet for future generations. We actively engage with our local community, collaborating on projects and initiatives that inspire a sense of belonging and shared purpose.
'Expect the best in everything then play your part in achieving it'
Diversity and inclusion are integral to our mission, and we strive to create an inclusive environment where all children feel welcome and valued. We are proud to offer expert special needs support, with a highly skilled SENco (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) on staff to ensure that every child's unique requirements are met.
Our commitment to excellence extends beyond the classroom, with an emphasis on social and emotional well-being, as well as developing a strong sense of responsibility towards our planet and community. We believe that by nurturing these values in our children, we are shaping not only their educational journey but also their growth as compassionate, responsible citizens of the world.
Join us at Dunster First School, where we cultivate a love for learning and a deep respect for the world around us, guiding our children towards a bright and promising future. Together, we will continue to make a positive impact on our people, our purpose, and our planet.
