Welcome to Fairfield School - a message from Richard Ware, Headteacher
I hope you will find the site a useful source of information about a very special community and give you an insight into the daily life of the school.
At Fairfield we work as a partnership of services alongside families to provide a wraparound provision for pupils and students aged 3 to 19 years with severe or profound learning difficulties and related needs. We try to make Fairfield a ‘One Stop Shop’ for children, young people and their families to access support and assistance as required.
We provide high quality teaching and learning across the three Departments which make up the school. The Teaching & Support Teams ensure that learning opportunities and activities are matched to individual needs. High expectations are the norm for every pupil in the school in lessons which are fun, engaging and innovative.
Of equally high quality is the standard of care and support provided within the school to ensure that personal needs do not get in the way of learning. In September 2010 we gained Specialist School Status for Communication and Interaction and in September 2012 became the first Special School to be awarded the Kirklees Inclusion Quality Standard of which we are very proud.
Enjoy your virtual visit and please feel free to leave your comments and suggestions.
Richard Ware, Headteacher
