Welcome to Fair Oak Junior School!


Welcome to Fair Oak Junior School. This website will give you a glimpse of what life at Fair Oak is like and we hope that you find it interesting and informative.


At Fair Oak we aim to give every child the very best education through vibrant and engaging teaching, enabling the children to become enthusiastic, active learners as part of an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum.


Throughout the school we want our children to enjoy a wide range of experiences which bring the curriculum to life and make learning fun. All our staff work hard to ensure the best possible quality of education for the children in every year group. Whilst you’re here, take a look at the topic curriculum maps in the year group pages.


We are proud of all the children at Fair Oak and are passionate to ensure they make progress. We are so grateful to have the support of the whole school community as together, as part of the Fair Oak Family, we will continue to Inspire successful learning.


Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you require further information. 


See the update from Mr De Silva's latest newsletter below


I hope you had a lovely Easter break and that the children had a chance to recharge ready for the learning this term. The year leader newsletters and curriculum grids will be coming out to you today, so that you get a full picture of your child’s curriculum and information about this term. Having read them, the children are going to have a busy term.


As mentioned previously, thank you for completing the most recent parent questionnaire. The results are:




My child feels safe at Fair Oak Juniors



My child makes good progress at Fair Oak Juniors

Fair Oak Juniors makes sure pupils are well behaved

Would you recommend Fair Oak Juniors to another parent



*results removing those who replied don’t know or gave no response


As you can see from above the results are fantastic. Thank you to all of my parents/guardians for completing the questionnaire. It really helps to validate what we do and helps us to remember why we do it – to make a difference to our children. A full break down of the questionnaire will be available on the school website.


On Wednesday I had the privilege to meet two former Fair Oak CE Junior School pupils – when the school was in the current infant building. Dave and Harry spoke of their memories of the school and were delighted to have a tour around parts of Fair Oak Junior School. It was fascinating hearing about all the farm land in the area, the strict behaviour management procedures and the teachers. Whilst they were with me, I had a look through an old log book. We looked back to 1952 and went through the list of teachers – some they remembered and others….well I couldn’t read the handwriting! Thank you to Dave and Harry for coming to visit.


On Tuesday next week (24.4.18) some of our children will be representing the school at the Rock Challenge at Portsmouth Guildhall – postponed due to the snow. Good luck to them - I certainly cannot wait to see them all on stage.


Welcome to our new Deputy Head, Mrs Layley. She started on Monday 16th and has certainly hit the ground running. Please see her introduction below. You will also see a thank you letter from Mr Brown. He couldn’t keep away completely – he popped in on the first day of term to say hello.


As can be seen from the results above, your child comes to a fantastic school where staff work tirelessly to keep them safe and keep them learning. As head teacher I am so fortunate to have a dedicated staff team. Miss Cunningham joined us in September as one of our new year 5 teachers. In February she married her husband. Unfortunately, during the Easter Holiday her husband passed away. Miss Cunningham’s class and their parents have been informed but I felt it appropriate at this point to inform the whole school family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Miss Cunningham, her family and friends. This is desperately sad news and certainly does put life in perspective. Please refrain from commenting about this on social media as a sign of respect to one of my incredibly talented teachers.
