Community & Charities

Nailsworth C of E Primary School are proud of the work we do within the local and wider community.


There are many aspects to our community and charity work:

  • Our School Council offers children a voice in many aspects of running the school;
  • Forest Green Rovers football club are our direct neighbours. We have school ambassadors who work closely with the team, plus the FGR Academy players have become mentors for our children;
  • Winslow House, a residential care home for the elderly that we visit regularly to sing, share cakes and have a chat with the residents;
  • Recycling with Riley was a great initiative we took part in throughout 2019 for recycling soft plastics working with a local plastics recycling company who turned our waste into a fantastic picnic table for us as you can see in the photo;
