About Fairfield School

Fairfield is a special school for children and young people aged 3 to 19 years.  All of our children have special educational needs which are not able to be met fully within a mainstream school.  Learning takes place in small class groups.  We offer a broad and balanced curriculum including the Foundation Stage curriculum at the early years.  We try to ensure that the curriculum is rich with exciting and engaging opportunities for the children to explore and engage with the world around them.  This includes two-way links with other schools; enrichment days (this year - Eid, Harvest, Sports Relief, Chinese New Year, Brazil and Africa); regular visits to and work within the community; regular visitors to school such as musicians, dancers and artists, people who help us.  We have a fabulous resources to support our young people.  These include a hydrotherapy pool, a rebound therapy room, sensory room, green screen technology, a range of augmentative and assistive communication technology, extensive grounds and well organised classrooms. 

This provides ideal opportunities to enrich the daily lives of our students in order to ensure they learn and progress as well as they possibly can. 

We believe in partnership with our parents and carers.  We therefore welcome parents and carers into school.  Please give us a ring if you would like to spend time with us.
