Back to Basics

Here at Fairfield, our team promotes the back to basics approach in order to support your child's mental health and wellbeing.


Through assemblies, via our newsletters and through the activities we introduce and promote with all children in school, we aim to support you to consider simple changes and adaptations to your family routine.


Parents report that simple changes to routine and lifestyle can result in improvements in their child's over all wellbeing.



How Back to Basics can help you and your family:

You can dip into some of the activities and helpful tips we share each week.


You can also set your own personal goals.


Try using the goal-setting tool to identify with your child three things you will do together and track their progress.



Once you begin to see positive changes in your child, think about what new goals you will move on to.


Remember to celebrate your successes and not give up.  Change can be challenging and can take time, but it will be worth it in the end.


If you would like a little more support, please just let us know.  Speak to Mrs Chambers, our Child and Family Support Worker or any member of the teaching and leadership team.
