About Us

The Fairfield Values

Our curriculum is underpinned by core fundamental values. These form the basis of everything we do in school. The Fairfield Four are:

  • We ALWAYS aim high
  • We ALWAYS have the confidence to try new things
  • We ALWAYS value and support each other
  • We ALWAYS show good sportsmanship and work as a team

Children who ALWAYS demonstrate these values, consistently, can be awarded an ALWAYS band.

In addition to the values we aim to:

  • Encourage each pupil to reach their potential by developing qualities of self-discipline, motivation and commitment.
  • Help pupils develop an understanding of their own identity and personal moral values
  • Help pupils develop respect and tolerance of other races, religions, cultures and life-styles
  • Help pupils to develop lively and enquiring minds, the ability to question and discuss rationally, to investigate and solve problems, and to effectively apply themselves to mental and physical tasks
  • Guide pupils to acquire understanding, knowledge and skills relevant to adult life and employment in a fast changing world
  • Help pupils gain competence in language, numeracy, information and communication technology skills (ICT), and scientific methodology, so that they can communicate effectively using these skills
  • Help pupils understand the world in which they live and the interdependence of individuals, groups and society
  • Help pupils to value aspirations and achievement
  • Help pupils to understand the importance of developing a social responsibility towards those less fortunate than themselves
