Church Links

Whilst we are not a church school and we actively seek to explore all religions, we do have some links with two local churches. We feel this builds cultural capital and it gives the children an opportunity to experience a church service and in some cases to perform; reading aloud, acting or singing.

Every year we hold a Harvest Festival, a Christmas Carol Service and an Easter Service at Midsomer Norton Methodist Church.

Every August, during the summer holidays, Longvernal plays host to Welton Baptist Church’s Nfest, attended by children from many schools in the town.


In addition to Community Leaders’ events throughout the year, Longvernal has established an ongoing link with Julian House, a charity supporting homelessness. They hold yearly assemblies which support our PSHE and British Values curriculum and several of our families over the years have participated in the annual Big Sleep Out.

 In March 2022 Dogs Trust ran workshops with the whole school.

Combe Lea Residential Care Home

A small group of Year 5 children regularly visit Combe Lea Residential Home to enjoy a variety of activities with a group of residents. The children learn to interact with them, assisting  with their activities and it stimulates the residents, enjoying the children's company . Activities include looking at old photographs of the local area from long ago and objects they would have used.  The residents love to talk about how they grew up. Especially interesting to the children is learning how little they had at Christmas in comparison to today! The children also enjoy arts and crafts activities, supporting the residents to colour in and cut out decorations etc. On occasions the children perform some of their  songs from school shows and concerts. The residents look forward to the children coming and always have a big welcome smile on their faces.
