Thank you for considering Fairview Primary School as the school for your child! I understand that deciding which school your child will attend is a huge step and we hope this website will help you with that decision.

We pride ourselves on all that we have to offer our children and, in turn, their achievements and outcomes. Through a dedicated, talented and hard-working staff we aim to INSPIRE your child to reach their potential. Through careful planning and tailored teaching that meets the needs of every individual pupil, we SUPPORT them throughout their learning journey. In partnership with you as their parents or carers we aspire to ensure every child will ACHIEVE during their time with us.

Our pupils are at the heart of all that we do at Fairview. We have a happy school. We have a staff who enjoy their work and we have pupils who enjoy coming to school each day. We have a deep Christian ethos that is shown through our caring and welcoming atmosphere.

We firmly believe in a strong and open partnership between school and home. Through active communication we ensure our children can develop into secure, happy and well-rounded young people who are proud of their achievements.

This website will only give you a snapshot into life at Fairview. The best way to experience our welcoming, friendly and child-centred ethos is to arrange a visit or attend our open day.

I very much look forward to welcoming you, and your child, to Fairview Primary School.
