Our Aims & Values

Ifield School aims to provide an outstanding and supportive learning environment in which everyone can achieve their full potential.  The school encourages pupils to learn resilience and develop high self-esteem, whilst always respecting the rights of others in the community.  In this way pupils prepare for adulthood, confident that they can contribute to, and fully belong to, their community and society in general.
