Fairfield Infant School

Everyone is valued and learning is fun

New Year R Intake 2021

Dear Parents,                                                                                                                                   


Thank you so much for choosing Fairfield Infant School.  We really look forward to welcoming you and your child.

We understand that for many of you starting school will be one of the greatest steps you and your child will ever take and this is perhaps even more daunting at this current time.


However we want to assure you that here at Fairfield, “Everyone is truly valued and learning is fun.”  Your child will be at the centre of everything we do!  We are committed to ensuring your child is happy, confident and motivated to learn so they can secure the very best life chances and achieve well.


We look forward to having the opportunity to get to know you and your child in the near future. 


We have put together a programme of events to help welcome you to our school. Due to the current situation, we have had to consider the activities carefully.
