Welcome to Longvernal Primary School

Longvernal Primary School is part of the Midsomer Norton Schools Partnership and is proud to be one of very few schools nationally to be a ‘Recognised Forest School Provider’ by the Forest School Association (FSA). We are committed to promoting outdoor learning; preparing our pupils to be outward-looking global citizens who embrace diversity, respect others and the world we live in. Every child and parent is considered to be a member of the ‘Longvernal Family,’ every one of us accepted for who we are, special and unique. A phrase you will often hear from our children is: ’It’s good to be me.’

Our Vision and Values


Forest School and outdoor learning, including expanding horizons through literature, visitors and visits are an integral part of life at Longvernal. Our school values are an acrostic of the word FOREST and are explored and celebrated in whole school assemblies; they sit well alongside the British Values: Individual Liberty; Democracy; Rule of Law; Mutual Respect and Tolerance.

Originality -Everyone’s uniqueness is recognised and celebrated

Respect - We look after each other and our environment

Excellence - Our best, always

Self-Belief - We can do anything we set our minds to

Teamwork - We work together to achieve our goals


‘Children at Longvernal learn with mud on their hands and smiles on their faces.'
