About Us

Welcome to West Leigh Infant School

Welcome to our lovely school! I hope that you find the site both useful and interesting and that it gives you a taste of the many exciting learning opportunities that our children take part in on a daily basis.

Our school is set in the very attractive village of Backwell, between Bristol and Weston-super-Mare. We are very proud of our Ofsted Good school, which was founded back in 1969. We have fantastic facilities which include two well-equipped play grounds, a superb adventure area, a lovely field and a fabulous wildlife pond. We have great links with our feeder pre-schools and since federating with Backwell Juniors in 2013, the children enjoy a seamless and well organised transition.

Our focus is on bringing learning to life through fun, engaging and challenging activities that offer our pupils the chance to flourish and develop their sense of independence. Our school is a friendly and very supportive community where 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 extremely proud to be Head Teacher of West Leigh Infant School and would be delighted to show you around our happy, thriving school.  Please contact the school office on or call 01275 463274.

Mr Nick Webster
Executive Head Teacher
