School Description

Leaders ensure that Fairfield School is a place that always ‘embraces uniqueness’. All pupils, from children in early years to post-16 students, experience a relevant curriculum that meets their individual needs. The teaching of communication is prioritised in lessons. Pupils are well taught by passionate teachers that care about meeting the academic needs of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Expectations of pupils are high. Around school are a variety of well-trained staff to support pupils. This includes specialist staff to support pupils’ medical needs. The school has a range of specialist therapeutic facilities and sensory interventions that pupils use throughout the day. There is a large sensory garden to ensure pupils learn about creatures in the wild and experience the world around them. Pupils can access the ‘sensory pod’ with a range of learning activities and immersive experiences. Pupils are able to use well-thought-out intervention spaces to support personal learning. Relationships between staff and pupils are strong. Staff know pupils very well. As a result, pupils feel safe. Staff support pupils consistently and confidently. This means pupils behave well. Bullying is not a concern, but leaders remain alert. There is a high staff ratio to support pupils at all times and classes are small.
