About Fairmead School


Fairmead School is situated on the North Eastern outskirts of Yeovil in the County of Somerset. It has a very wide catchment area taking in students from across South Somerset and into parts of Dorset. The school, which currently has 140 students on role, caters for students with MLD and ASD, aged between four and nineteen years.

Principles - we seek to provide a friendly, caring environment for all our children to reach their potential through high quality teaching and learning that supports the development of life-long learning skills, self-esteem and celebrates individual success. The school is committed to the philosophy of equal access to educational opportunities through the National Curriculum and to the provision of suitably differentiated programmes of study to meet individual needs. The teaching and learning styles reflect the ethos expected by the Governors and staff in promoting a calm and co-operative atmosphere for work. Codes of conduct and expectations of positive behaviour are based upon the principles outlined in the School Behaviour Policy, which was developed with all members of the school community (including Governors and parents). It promotes mutual respect and consideration of everyone. We therefore have high and consistent expectations of all who belong to, or are connected with the school.

Staff and Governors work in partnership with parents and other professional agencies. The school philosophy is founded upon an appropriately challenging and stimulating curriculum where students realise their potential and achieve to the best of their ability. At Fairmead School student attainment is achieved through individual programmes of study that are enhanced by extra-curricular activities. Fairmead School seeks to create a happy and supporting environment for all students and staff that encourages everyone ‘to be the best we can be.
