School Information

It is a regulatory requirement that parents of current and prospective pupils are informed of the range of policies we have. A complete set of policies and statements is available on request in the school office and the policies and statements which must be provided or made available to parents of pupils and prospective pupils can be accessed under the Policies section here. They may be downloaded in “pdf” format; you may need a program such as Adobe Reader to view these files. Academic performance is reported under the Curriculum/SATs menu and a copy of the most recent ISI inspection report can be accessed by clicking on the Curriculum/ISI and OFSTED reports menu bar.

Unless otherwise stated, all policies and documentation apply to the whole school including Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Extended Day Care provision. 

Extended Day Care provision (including our holiday activity club) is considered an integral part of the school and is staffed by school employees and held on school premises.

The School's address (and address of our registered office) is Fairfield School, Fairfield Way, Backwell BS48 3PD and the School's telephone number is 01275 462743. The Headmistress is Mrs Lesley Barton. Ms Shairon Lloyd is the Chair of Governors and can be contacted via the school address.
