At Fairfield Academy, we strive to ensure that all children reach their full potential - academically, socially, emotionally, physically, morally, spiritually and aesthetically; enabling them to grow in confidence and participate fully in the community when they become young adults. Through support and encouragement we aim to develop lively enquiring minds with the ability to question and discuss sensibly, and then successfully apply their knowledge and skills to solve problems.
We place great importance on developing self-esteem, a positive self-image and self-discipline and encourage our pupils to become independent learners. We aim to help pupils develop personal, spiritual and moral values, an understanding of different religions and beliefs, and instil in them a tolerant attitude towards others different from themselves.
Learning is fun! At Fairfield Academy all our staff are committed to ensuring that children enjoy their learning. Whilst emphasis is placed on acquiring basic literacy and numeracy skills, we also believe that learning through a thematic approach enables pupils to make links with real-life and provides a broader understanding of the world in which they live.
Pupil representatives from each class sit on the school council. Regular meetings take place when pupil representatives meet with the Principal. This provides an opportunity for pupils to discuss any issues or concerns, as well as to voice positive feedback and make suggestions on all matters related to pupils’ life at school.
