Yes it's a set phrase.

Yes, it is "szkoła podstawowa" (it as a fixed expression and hence the adjective is after the verb; other examples: "zupa pomidorowa" = "tomato soup", "Sąd Najwyższy" = "Supreme Court"). You could also say "podstawówka", "Moja siostra chodzi do podstawówki" (sligthly colloquial).
