At Fairfields, we believe that English is a vital part of a child’s education. We want our children to become resilient, independent learners with a passion for reading that they will carry forward into their later lives. We aim to inspire an appreciation of our rich and varied literary heritage and a habit of reading widely and often. We want to develop a culture where children take pride in their writing, write clearly and accurately and adapt their language and style for a range of contexts. We want to inspire children to be confident in the art of speaking and listening, and to be able to use discussion to communicate and further their learning.
