Whilst maintaining the individuality of each school, we aim to achieve unity through a shared vision and core values. We have one governing body, one headteacher and a united staff who strive to ensure that every child is afforded the best educational experiences. This enables ALL our children to develop as successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
Within the federation of Blackfield Primary and Fawley Infant Schools, our vision places learning at the heart of all that we do. The collaborative planning and sharing of expertise ensures that lessons are innovative and creative, inspiring pupils to make outstanding progress within real and meaningful contexts.
Both sites offer a huge variety of opportunities from a high teacher : pupil ratio to the rich supply of educational resources, spacious accommodation and extensive, well maintained grounds.
Our broad and balanced curriculum fully embraces ICT, providing children with opportunities to engage in, extend and share their learning at home and developing the necessary skills for the future. We are committed to providing the very best for the children and we believe that this means a great deal more than simply those results that can easily be tested and presented in tables.
We firmly believe that primary schooling should be about developing children's learning attitudes and their characters so that they will want to go on learning for ever, and although this means very high standards in English and Mathematics, it means so much more besides. We have high expectations, working hard to make the best possible progress, but we have a great deal of fun as well and really value the laughter and the fun that is essential in securing a unified and stimulating atmosphere for learning.
This vision is driven through the development of our six learning values in the context of our Integrated Curriculum, where there is a strong focus on subject knowledge and skills within meaningful contexts. The curriculum is wide and varied and challenges every pupil to achieve their best in becoming independent and confident learners who are able to make decisions and think for themselves.
Many exciting opportunities have been created through the staff and pupils of both schools working more closely together and through developing strong links with other outstanding education providers. Fostering extensive links with parents and the communities they serve has helped strengthen and transform the position of both schools within the locality.
We hope that this website gives you a taste of life within our innovative federation and we look forward to welcoming you to our schools. To discover more about us, the achievements of our pupils and the exciting opportunities we provide.
