While each academy is unique, we share common goals, aspirations, values and methods that enable us to work collaboratively and collectively to achieve our mission. We operate regional hubs, whereby academies work with other schools who are part of the Trust so we can share skills and knowledge, allowing them to benefit and learn from each other. We offer high quality programmes for CPD and Leadership Development to support our practitioners to deliver high quality teaching and learning across our academies.
We are a warm and welcoming primary school located in the outskirts of Grimsby. As an academy we are continually striving to provide a rich and inspiring curriculum to excite and motivate our pupils.
We encourage each child to reach their potential by developing qualities of self-discipline, motivation and commitment. We want our children to enjoy learning and value the importance of aspirations and achievement.
At Fairfield Academy we set high standards for our pupils and expect them to take pride in their behaviour and their learning. We encourage children to establish good relationships with each other and to develop lively and enquiring minds.
