Welcome to Fair Field Junior School. Our school caters for children aged 7-11 years old and our link infant school is St. John’s Infant School.
Since April 2017, I have been the Executive Headteacher at both schools joining our community together. We share common values with respect, honesty, kindness, forgiveness, perseverance and inclusion being at the heart of them.
I am extremely proud of our children at Fair Field. Their behaviour is excellent and this was highlighted in our most recent Ofsted report:
“Pupils’ behaviour and relationships are outstanding. Their conduct both within class and around the school is exemplary. Pupils are highly attentive in class and respond with enthusiasm to tasks and activities.” Ofsted July 2017
The children benefit from excellent teaching at Fair Field and all staff are committed to ensuring the best possible opportunities are available for our children. Our lessons are vibrant and engaging. We provide personalised learning for our children and ensure they make progress at a challenging standard for them. We have a very dedicated staff team who always go the extra mile for the children in their care.
“Parents are unanimous in their praise of the school. They value highly the support and care that staff provide for their children.” Ofsted July 2017
We have a strong enrichment programme which embraces my belief that children learn from real-life experiences. These include school trips to Kew Gardens, the British Museum and Verulamium Museum, as well as residential trips. This year our Year 6 pupils are going to the Isle of Wight and our Year 5 pupils went to Kingswood. We also have a strong extra-curricular programme including chess, fencing, drama, tech club, Spanish and many more.
If you would like to visit the school please make an appointment with the office and one of our Year 6 Ambassadors will provide a tour for you. We welcome visits from all potential parents and carers, including those considering St. John’s for Reception.
Our Acting Head of School, Mrs Goodwin, and I look forward to welcoming you to the school.
