At Glenfrome we believe that we should be the centre of the Eastville community. We want our children to get out and about, as well as invite the community in to the school, both through lettings, and to share in the children’s learning.
Our children have been lucky enough to work on some amazing projects including to improving the M32 underpass, (yes the woodpeckers towers and roundabout art were us!) and design new signs for Eastville Park lake. We supported the Multi Story Water Project, we work with the Amazing Ape Project who not only promote outdoor play and learning with our families, but also run bike swaps and sales in the school. See the gallery at the bottom of this page to get a feel for some of our community involvement activities.
Multi Story Water
This project involved the whole community in celebrating the river Frome in Eastville. It was an interactive project around Eastville, which involved local people in a creative conversation about the River Frome and their relationships with it – about the pleasures it brings, the memories it holds, and the risks it poses.

Friends of Eastville Park
We are very proud of the community links fostered by our various local heritage projects. Our Year 2s investigated what our local park, Eastville, was like during WW2. The children worked very hard to produce a wonderful and innovative WW2 heritage trail app about Eastville Park. In collaboration with Friends of Eastville Park we will be installing a permanent display board of the WW2 heritage trail so it can be shared and enjoyed throughout our local community.
We love working with the APE project, who facilitate our hugely popular Stay and Play sessions. Stay and Play is a family based outdoor adventure play session which takes place every Wednesday, based on the firm knowledge and belief that children need and want outdoor play. Children stay behind after school with their parents or carers to engage in stimulating and positive activities which nourish an engagement in play in the natural environment with a cooperative approach. We all love it! Click here for more info about APE.
