Mission & Values

The Mission of the York Region District School Board is “To advance student achievement and well-being through public education, which motivates learners, fosters inclusion, inspires innovation and builds community.”

In conjunction with the Board’s Mission, the Mission at Ellen Fairclough P.S. is to create a welcoming, respectful environment where all members of the school community work collaboratively to develop students who are life-long learners with positive character, who make healthy life choices.

We embrace our role as partners in a diverse community. We are inspired by the dreams of our students and strive to help them achieve their personal goals. Our students are the present and the future. We prepare them to be life-long learners, and successful, productive members of a dynamic world.
We foster and support:
  • a warm, welcoming environment that is safe, respectful, equitable and inclusive
  • the pursuit of individual academic excellence, and encourage balanced involvement in arts and/or athletic activities
  • the development of confident, independent, and “character driven” personalities
  • an active, living school community that has the knowledge and desire to make healthy choices
  • positive and effective community partnerships
  • a collaborative, collegial environment of Professional Learning Communities.

At Ellen Fairclough, we use the character traits to express our positive attitudes.
We respect one another and value everyone in the community.
We are a safe school where everyone feels welcomed and included.
We are all unique. We celebrate and honour our differences. We take pride in our cultures.
As a living school, we make healthy choices and stay active.
We protect the environment because we care about our future.
We always try our best. We take responsibility for our actions. We learn from our mistakes.
At Ellen Fairclough, we have the spirit to try, and the courage to fly.
