Welcome to
Goodnestone Church of England
Primary School


The staff of Goodnestone Church of England Primary School feel exceptionally proud of the children and our school. As a small rural village primary school we work in partnership with our children, parents, staff, friends and community in ensuring that our children receive the best possible education and life experiences. As described by one of our children “We are one big happy family that supports each other in everything we do, ensuring we all achieve and we are all recognised for our strengths”.

With the benefits of being a small school, Goodnestone is able consistently to stretch its pupils to their maximum potential as individuals, and to care for them and their academic needs as individuals. Goodnestone’s strong ethos, led by example, soon shines through every child, who learns to be considerate towards everyone with whom they engage, in school and in outside life.

Since November 2014, Goodnestone has been Federated with Nonington Church of England Primary School, which is in the next village. Both schools retain their unique identities, under the leadership of one Governing Body and one Headteacher, each school having its own Head of School who supports the Headteacher.

We see ourselves as part of the church family and worship regularly in Holy Cross Church, Goodnestone. This commitment is enhanced by our being a welcoming setting for all children and families, of different faith traditions or none.

We have an ‘open-door’ policy and welcome visits from anyone in our life and work here.

We hope that you will find our website informative and that it gives you an insight into life at Goodnestone.

Please feel free to contact the school for further information or come and visit!
