    About Fairfield Primary School

    Fairfield Primary is a school that is truly at the heart of its community. It is a school where individuals are valued and helped to achieve their very best in all areas of development. Children are supported in becoming confident and independent young people, who thrive on challenge, and are motivated to learn.
    We work hard to deliver a rich and challenging curriculum; to help children acquire the skills and enthusiasm needed to embrace the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life. We believe in helping our learners to become 'learners for life'
    The excellent start begins in our Nursery and continues through the school with staff providing a happy, supportive and purposeful environment, and a curriculum that excites and stimulates children's imaginations and creative thinking. The curriculum is delivered through a strong cross-curricular approach which is further enhanced by whole-school themed days and numerous other events. We believe strongly in 'learning Outside the Classroom' and have a well-established Forest Schools programme and numerous outdoor field trips.
