Staff

Our staff team is one of our greatest assets and includes specialists in languages, music, sport and SEN. The team is dynamic and leads by example; teachers update their skills on a regular basis by attending continuing professional development courses. This results in highly skilled professionals who are fully conversant with current best practice and regulatory requirements. At the same time, they have a sense of fun and an appreciation of the value of nurturing our children's sense of 'awe and wonder' at the world around them.

“Our son joined Fairfield in Year 2. His teacher discovered he was worried about making mistakes so she taught him that there is a positive side to getting things wrong, that's how we learn and figure things out. It was a huge step forward for our child. From that point to Year 6 he has developed from a shy child into a confident young man.

This school really does take notice of the quiet children.”
