Peterchurch, Herefordshire, HR2 0SG
"A forward-looking school with traditional values"
We are proud to show you our outstanding school in the depths of rural Herefordshire, complete with students, adults and animals. One of the very smallest schools in Britain and one of the very best if Ofsted, exam results and league tables, parents and students are anything to go by. Small schools can provide a completely rounded experience and a full range of opportunities - social, creative, sporting, as well as superb exam results. It requires dedication, vision, commitment and energy and a mutual respect and purpose among everyone who works and studies at the school.

The VLE is dead - long live Remote Access
The VLE has been down the last week or so due to it dying... but it is now reborn as Remote Access from Student and Staff Areas, the sidebar and from this link.
Don't worry about the security warning in this case - it's perfectly safe but the certificate hasn't come through yet.
Ofsted came and saw and reported. Above is their summary and here is the full report. Chair of Governors, Paula James, writes:

“Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.”
Our students are VERY generous! Here are some of the details of last school year's giving -
Amazing totals - especially for such a tiny school!
"No one has yet realized the wealth of sympathy, the kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure."
When you buy online via The Giving Machine, a sales
commission is received from the participating shop. 75% of this is
converted into a donation on your behalf and sent to your chosen
beneficiary(s) – ie Fairfield. 25% is retained to contribute to costs
of maintaining the website and distributing donations.
Please follow this link to read about helping the school and how easy it is to be involved.
We have a Twitter feed where we put new
information - and especially URGENT information - on a regular basis. If you
already use Twitter, just follow
us and you will receive the latest news from school. If you don't yet
participate, here's a good place to start! As with the web in general, there is a
HUGE amount of rubbish on Twitter but, if you selectively follow the right people
and organizations (such as Josie
Pearson, Open Culture, some
of the many BBC feeds and Hay Festival for example) you are kept up
to date with interesting developments in news and ideas. You may wish to find out
more about a particular topic by searching for it or you may be tempted to follow
some of the "Trending" topics which the majority of people are following at any
one time. Of course, if you have a phone which has friendstreams or widgets for
sites like this, you need never miss a thing - but we would recommend five
minutes a day catch-up as enough!
Whoever you follow, please follow Fairfield.
"This is an outstanding school. At its last inspection, it was outstanding in all main categories. Since then it has significantly improved not just in respect of the areas for development identified in that inspection but also in terms of major developments to its educational provision for pupils and in the response that these have generated." - OfSTED
