Fairfield Community Primary School

Happiness and High Standards

Welcome to Fairfield School


We hope that this site will help to further strengthen our links with parents and the community that we are proud to serve.

My name is Chris Ashley and I have been Headteacher at Fairfield C.P. School since 1996. I lead an accomplished staff team which shares my vision for a school that aims for "Happiness and High Standards" throughout all areas of school life.

Fairfield is a successful and inclusive school. The educational journey that the children experience here takes the majority from achieving significantly below national expectations when starting school to achieving at or beyond those expectations on leaving. We have a strong reputation for enabling children with special educational needs to flourish and make progress against their difficulties whilst children with gifts and talents are challenged and stretched to achieve at the highest levels. We believe that children learn through experience and during their time at Fairfield, children are given the opportunity to access a wide range of opportunities in sport, music, drama and world wide culture. Children here are kept safe and we are told, happy!

Much of our success is achieved through the linking of the dedication and expertise of teaching staff with the hard work, enthusiasm and knowledge of children and their parents. We never forget that a parent is a child's first and most important teacher. It is hoped that this website can be a key tool in enabling us to extend our sharing of the learning experience throughout all areas of school life and that it will open the doors of the entire curriculum to our community.

Our website is aimed at improving communication and should give instant access to our policies and procedures and provide links to places on the web where learning can be enhanced to an even greater degree.  We hope that you find the site useful.

Thank you for logging on and contributing to our quest for:


Happiness and High Standards!

Chris Ashley
