About Us

Welcome to Backwell Church of England Junior School

Thank you for visiting our website. I hope that it gives you a taste of the many exciting learning opportunities on offer to our children and that you find the site both useful and interesting. We are a friendly school where our pupils are encouraged to be the very best they can be and where we want the children to believe in a Growth Mindset where even when something is challenging, they see that challenge as an opportunity to learn - 'I cant do this....yet.'

We are very proud of our Outstanding school, which dates all the way back to 1862. Our happy and motivated pupils enjoy their learning under the guidance of an enthusiastic, highly skilled and dedicated staff team.

We are a Church of England school with very close links to St Andrew’s Church. We work in close partnership with the Church and the local community as we strive to develop confident, responsible and enthusiastic pupils who Aspire, Achieve and Celebrate their many successes.

We aim to create a culture of 'Learning Without Limits' where all pupils are fully involved in shaping their own learning choices and where investigation, collaboration and challenge are fully embedded into everything that we do.

I am very proud to be Head Teacher of Backwell Church of England Junior School and would be delighted to show you around our happy, thriving and friendly school.

Mr Nick Webster
Executive Head Teacher
