The tutor is the key adult in the school life of a student and the aim is for each tutor to stay with their group for the duration of the students’ time at Fairfield. Each tutor meets their students every day and is responsible for registering and monitoring attendance and delivering a programme of personal and social education.
Student Reception is located opposite the library and is open before school, at break and lunch time. They can help with any queries students may have and help with lost fobs and paying for school trips.
There are trained First Aiders throughout the school who are on hand to assist.
The centre staff comprises a large team of support staff and learning support assistants who aim to ensure that each student, with his or her unique talents and needs, is recognised and cared for as an individual. The school has excellent working relationships with the full range of support services.
We offer the services of fully trained counsellors through the Stepping Up scheme, who are available to support students on a one-to-one basis. Any student may ask for an appointment to see the counsellor.
