Our Philosophy


We recognise that the cornerstone of a child’s success at school begins with the quality of relationships across the school. We learn from each other; we learn together. The teacher is the skilled and trusted facilitator in this process who ensures that’s every day, every child is engaged in purposeful and powerful learning. Learning takes place in an atmosphere of mutual respect, dialogue, student voice and collaboration. At the core of our work is always the student. It is through developing our understanding of our students, that we develop our educational programs and build the quality relationships required to achieve the optimal learning outcomes and personal best for each child. Fairfield Primary School is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making. We are committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives.
