Fairstead Community Primary School caters for boys and girls, aged 3-ll years of age. Currently there are 440 children on roll. We have fourteen classes, a library, two adjoining halls and easily accessible computing resources, including desktop stations and laptop/ipad trolleys. Fairstead Community Primary School is set in spacious grounds with two playgrounds and a large playing field. Our Nursery and Reception classes benefit from secure outside areas, including canopied areas, which enable all year round free flow outside learning. Over the last few years, we have developed the outside area to include an outside classroom, wildlife garden, stage area and large play equipment.
Fairstead School was graded good at the last Ofsted inspection. The Headteacher, Governors and staff are aiming to improve this grading to outstanding by providing excellent teaching and learning opportunities for all pupils.
Class teachers are responsible for ensuring the welfare of all of the children and delivery of the curriculum. Learning is planned jointly across teaching teams, with close communication and support from our team of teaching assistants. Planning draws upon the strengths, skills and knowledge within the year group teams to ensure lessons are exciting and well matched to the needs of all the children.
