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 sixteen years.

At Fairmead we seek to provide a friendly, caring environment for all our students to reach their potential through high quality teaching and learning that supports the development of life-long learning skills, self-esteem and which celebrates individual success. The school is committed to the philosophy of equal access to educational opportunities through an adapted National Curriculum that focuses on acquiring the most important knowledge and skills for life beyond Fairmead. The teaching and learning styles reflect the ethos expected by the Governors and staff in promoting a calm and co-operative atmosphere for work.

As a staff team and as a school community our core responsibility is to prepare all young people for aspirational, successful and independent futures. It is upon this solid foundation that we have constructed a curriculum that enables young people to take responsibility, show empathy and respect, develop confidence, and empowers them to realise a strong vision for their own futures. Fairmead School seeks to create a happy and supporting environment for all students and staff that encourages everyone to recognise and strive to achieve their full potential.

As a community, we promote mutual respect and consideration of everyone and therefore have high and consistent expectations of all who belong to, or are connected with the school. We celebrate difference and encourage young people to explore and embrace their own identity as they prepare for their future adult lives within a diverse community.
