About Fairstead Community Primary and Nursery School

Fairstead Community Primary & Nursery School was built 50 years ago to serve the new families that moved up from London to “fill” the new estate. The Fairstead estate is one of several “London overspill” estates that were built around the edges of the town at that time.
Our pupil roll and buildings have changed and grown over time. The original building has been extended and modernised and we are in the final stages of a capital programme to replace windows and doors.

We now have 15 classes, accommodating 440 children, aged 3-11 years of age including a 52 place Nursery. In addition to our classrooms, we have an ELSA room, sensory room, two adjoining halls and easily accessible computing resources.

We have a spacious and well maintained, attractive outdoor space and playing field with a proactive and committed on-site Site Manager. Our Nursery and Reception classes now benefit from substantial investment in a newly developed outdoor area specifically designed to support the seven key areas of learning in EYFS. Over the last few years we have successfully brought in additional funding and support from local businesses to develop the outside area to include an outside classroom, stage area, large play equipment and a Forest Schools area.

We currently have 17 teaching staff, 20 Teaching Assistants, 1 ELSA, 3 HLTA’s, 6 premises staff, 1 SBM, and 3 administrative staff.
