Fairfield Endowed C of E Junior School

Happy. Proud. Successful.

Vision and Values

Our School Motto, aims and vision

Background

Our School is a Church of England (Controlled) day school for children between the ages of 7 and 11. We have a special relationship with St Peter's Church and value the links we have with the church community.

Our School Motto

Happy.Proud.Successful.

Our school motto is displayed on all of our literature. The children changed the motto in 2016 using the three most appropriate words which best reflected their time here at Fairfield. It was also felt that it applied to the whole of our school community, including parents and staff.

Our School Vision

To produce happy, proud and successful children and families, encouraging life-long learning throughout our school community.

Our school vision was born out of wanting our whole community to be a learning community including children, parents and staff. The vision is reflected in the work we do with our children every day, as well as in the training opportunities available to staff and parents throughout each school year.

We’re pleased that our school vision reflects that of the local authorities; ‘Love life learning’ and helps us to meet our Christian Values.

Our Christian Values

Our Christian Values are great discussion points for both learning and social times. You’ll see them displayed on the hall wall and linked to learning in the classroom. It is how we live and they apply to us all. We also refer to them as Human Values.

To live “life in all its fullness” through:

building knowledge and wisdom;

showing respect and treating everyone with dignity;

giving hope and raising aspirations;

encouraging a sense of community

to allow us to live well together as global citizens.

 

What’s behind the words?

Knowledge – Making sure ALL children within our school community have access to high quality learning so that they can make progress and achieve.

Wisdom – Using our knowledge to make positive and life enhancing decisions to live life in all its fullness.

Respect – Learning about and acceptance of all different faiths, beliefs, opinions and cultures.

Dignity – Ensuring that the opinions and concerns of everyone with a stake in the school are valued and taken seriously.

Hope and aspirations  – To dream and wish for the best future with the confident expectation that with God’s help it will happen.

Community – We are proud to serve our local community and, through our work with St Peter’s and other agencies, to support our children and families in all aspects of their lives

Living as global citizens – Our children are encouraged to have an understanding of life across the globe and to courageously advocate for those less fortunate.
