Our school is highly regarded and, we believe, offers a wide and varied curriculum to enable all our children to progress and achieve their potential.
As you can see on our website there is a wide and varied range of extra activities that are supported by the school from computer code club to rugby and from dance to choir. Some are run by our own dedicated staff and others by external providers to ensure we provide the widest possible range that we can.

On behalf of the governing body I would like to welcome you to Fair Oak Junior School.
Chair of Governors
School governors are essential to the overall organisation and effectiveness of our school. All are volunteers and are appointed they represent the parents, the staff, the Local Education Authority and the community. There are also sponsor, partnership and associate governors who offer additional expertise or support.
At Fair Oak Junior School the Headteacher and governing body work in close partnership to set aims and objectives for the school, to adopt policies and to set targets for achieving those aims and objectives.
The governing body meets as a whole six times a year and receives reports from the Headteacher on the main aspects of school life. In addition there are a number of committees which consider standards, resources, finance, and the extended schools project or campus issues. Governors are also welcomed to undertake planned visits to look at specific aspects of the school’s work.
Crucially, the role of governors is to monitor, evaluate, challenge and support the school to develop and promote high standards of care and educational achievement for every child.
