Fairfield Primary School was created in 2004 following the amalgamation of the Infant and Junior Schools. In 2010 we moved into one building which was partly a new build. We are now fortunate to have an amazing building and grounds, which we continue to develop.
Our children are bright, capable and hardworking; we expect nothing less!
Children contribute to our school in a range of ways:
- We have a Junior Leadership team of approximately 120 pupils across KS2 who support curriculum leaders to review and develop the school curriculum. This is a new leadership team, but it has already proved to be very keen and every effective!
- Our Eco-Heroes work with staff and pupils to improve the environment of our school, the local area, and the world. They are enthusiastic and committed and demonstrate the key attributes of care, kindness, open-mindedness and service that we hope to develop in all of our children.
- Lots of children across Years 4, 5 and 6 support others at playtimes. Year 6 act as Play Leaders, Year 5 children support the Year 6 Play Leaders, and our Year 4 children support Reception children at lunchtimes. Several children help with Mrs Dunford’s lunchtime Lego Club.
We have high expectations for behaviour from all pupils, but we also understand that children are individuals with very different needs. As a result we ensure that where possible we put in support to help children who are having difficulties. This may be through targeted interventions, 1:1 support, small group work or access to help from outside agencies.
We work closely with families to ensure that all our children make progress and that they are happy, healthy and successful when they move on to Secondary school. This is not always a trouble-free process, but we will always work with you when support is needed.
We offer advice and support in a number of ways:
- Very friendly and experienced staff! Our office staff are wonderful and are an excellent first port of call for any queries.
- Induction evenings for Nursery and Reception parents.
- Weekly newsletters.
- Parent Consultations termly.
- Informal information sharing from class teachers.
- Support from the SENCo for children with special needs.
- Access to counselling services for children.
- Lots of specialist support in school for speech and language.
