Fennell Bay Public School has an enrolment of 160 students with 31% Aboriginal students. There are six stage based classes, including a support IM and two Multicategorical classes. The School Executive includes three Assistant Principals and in 2015 an Instructional Leader. Students are supported by the Learning and Support Teachers and a range of intervention programs. Since 2011, the Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) Program has been developed and implemented within the school with positive outcomes for students, staff and community.

The school strives to achieve continuous development and personal achievement for each of its students. We implement a curriculum which focuses on the basic skills of literacy and numeracy and also provides diversity, comprehensive support and welfare programs in order to maintain a safe caring environment which is conducive to learning.

Nar-un-bah, the SaCC (School as Community Centre) is an integral part of the school and allows families to access both service provision and inter-agency support. Programs delivered include: Supported Playgroup, Tafe Outreach, Nutrition Workshops, Positive Parenting Workshops and Transition to School. Opportunities exist for students in Sport, Creative and Performing Arts Groups, including choirs, dance and didge group, debating and inter-school sport. The school is supported by an active P&C whose fundraising activities in 2014 included a successful Winter Fair. Fennell Bay Public School is successful in its implementation of a safe, caring and inclusive learning environment in which all students have the opportunity to succeed. This plan is a result of consultation between the students, staff and community.
