Head Teacher's Welcome 

Our values and ethos


Welcome to our school!  


Tucked away in a corner of Southmead we have a dedicated, talented and exceptionally caring staff who are ambitious for and champion every single child to be the best they can be. We have a fantastic environment to support and inspire children, and an ethos that believes in the potential of each and every child. We place a high value on well-being and mental health, alongside academic achievement. This approach is reflected in our values of ambition and integrity.


Ofsted visited us in September 2022 and judged us to be GOOD in all areas which is a judgement we are very proud of. Here is the link to the final report.


Our school motto ‘working together, achieving together’ underpins our commitment to working collaboratively with our learners, parents and carers and the local community, so that when our children move on from Fonthill they know that they have achieved personal, social and academic success.


We think Fonthill is a special and unique place to learn and grow. Every child is given a Fonthill 101 booklet when they join our school in Reception. This details 101 different experiences that each child can have at Fonthill. Our learning is based on Fonthill READS-Remember, Explain, Apply, Develop, Share. This approach helps our children develop a deeper understanding and make links between their learning. We want all our children to be on FIRE-Focussed, Independent, Resilient, Enthusiastic. This supports them to be the best learners they can be.


We are part of Endeavour Academy Trust, a local primary-based Multi-Academy Trust, which supports our collaborative work. Within Endeavour Academy Trust we are committed to equalities in all aspects of our work. We strive to achieve a cohesive community where all members feel respected, valued and fully included in school life. We offer breakfast club and after-school club to support families in every way that we can. 


Here is a short video showing you a little bit more of what our school has to offer. If you are looking for a place for your child and would like to arrange a visit to look around our school, please contact us. 

For general enquiries or to arrange a tour please contact Penny Gowie, Office Manager, via phone 0117 3772550 or email

We would love to show you around and introduce you to our fantastic staff and children.
