Fairfield Road is a lively, busy and friendly school. The children are engaged happily in well planned, purposeful activities which ensure that they achieve high standards. All members of our school community find joy in working together and being part of our school.
The school has a strong sense of community and relationships with parents are excellent. Fairfield Road enjoys a good reputation and welcomes children from a wide area.
At Fairfield Road particular emphasis is placed upon co-operative working within the team and upon developing positive attitudes, tolerance towards others and an appreciation of each person's contribution to our school. To this end our school motto is:
