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 and Nursery C of E 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 now the CEO of the Poppy Academy Trust which legally joins the schools.
I am extremely proud of our children at Fair Field. Their behaviour and respect for one another is excellent and this was highlighted in our most recent Ofsted report: "Pupils understand equality and fairness. They respect and follow the school rules. Pupils can fully focus on their learning in class and play together well, with older pupils acting as ‘buddies’ to those in lower years. This helps younger pupils settle in quickly." Ofsted March 2023
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. Pupils thrive at Fair Field Junior School. Pupils know that they are valued and cared for by dedicated staff. Ofsted March 2023. 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.
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. We also have a strong extra-curricular programme including chess, fencing, football, gymanstics 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 Headteacher Mrs Leggett and I look forward to welcoming you to the school.
