The school’s curriculum is responsive to the diversity of its community. Teachers promote positive interactions with and among students. Culturally responsive teaching practices emphasise whanaungatanga (family-like relationships), manaakitanga (sharing and contributing), and mahi tahi (working together cooperatively). Classes are settled and students are actively engaged in meaningful learning experiences.

The "Fairfield Learner” is defined as a student who takes pride in his or her culture, is a capable communicator, a resilient team player and a respectful, motivated learner. These school-wide values are actively promoted in all classes and regularly reviewed to ensure that they reflect community priorities. The senior leadership team and staff have established a welcoming, inclusive school culture where every learner is valued and there is a focus on success for all. Students’ health and well being is emphasised as a foundation for successful learning. There is a strong emphasis on engaging families as partners in their own children’s learning.
