Welcome to Fairfields Primary school, a member of the Inspiring Futures Through Learning Academy Trust.

I would like to introduce myself as the Headteacher of Fairfields Primary School and take this opportunity to extend a very warm welcome to all prospective parents, friends and families. It is a privilege to be entrusted with the role of leading and growing this new school.

My ambition, along with a team of passionate and dedicated staff, is for Fairfields to become the ‘beating heart of our community’ changing and adapting as our extended family grows; transforming individual dreams and aspirations into collaborative goals as we journey together toward excellence.

We can only be successful with your support and guidance. You know your child better than anyone. I encourage all parents to be a part of their education but at the same time trust us to do the very best for your child. We look forward to developing a strong partnership with you in order to allow your child to achieve during their time at Fairfields Primary School as they begin their lifelong learning journey.

A common ethos and shared values underpin everything that we do. It will be the means by which our school achieves its objective of educating children in the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need in order to lead fulfilling lives.

We will value the way in which children are unique, celebrating diversity and valuing the importance of each person within our community. We will respect others regardless of ability, gender, ethnicity or religion. We will provide a happy, caring, supportive and positive learning community where each child can develop and extend their potential and achieve success.

Our commitment to you is that your child will receive an education through a bespoke curriculum that is innovative, creative and stimulating and will provide them with the layers and building blocks to allow them to succeed in life and be the best that they can be.

An exciting journey awaits all of us and we are so proud to be part of it.
