Welcome to Fairhouse Primary School. I am delighted to be headteacher of this fantastic school in the heart of Basildon.
Fairhouse Primary School is a "Good" two-form Primary school with a highly supportive and dedicated staff team. My vision for Fairhouse is for our school and our community to make a positive difference in the lives of each and every one of the pupils, both academically and personally. We are ambitious, passionate and determined to achieve success in every aspect of school life. The staff, Governing Body and the Trust work together to create and foster a culture of high aspiration, enjoyment for learning, academic success and lifelong skills amongst all pupils, regardless of their social, economic or cultural background.
Our core values of respect, responsibility, kindness and courage are highly fostered and celebrated in all that we do here and I am immensely proud of our achievements.
