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.


Parents, please do let the school know if you would like free paper copies of information contained on the website.



Dear Fair Oak Family,


There have been so many wonderful highlights during the past fortnight.


Our School Production of Alice in Wonderland was phenomenal, with so many children taking part and representing the school. There were so many teams of people involved – ranging from front of house to backstage. Well done to all who were involved. A huge thank you must go to my most amazing talented, gifted and selfless staff team, particularly Mrs Brown. Each Thursday the school was transformed into a music and drama school and it was amazing to see so many adults and children pulling in one common direction. Thank you.


On Thursday 27th, the yearly reports were sent out. Thank you very much for supporting your child with his/her learning. It really does make such a huge difference when home and school ‘sing from the same hymn sheet’ and support the children we care about so much.


On Monday (1st July) we welcomed 30 pupils and teachers from Phoenix Garden City Primary School, Nanjing, China. They were based in year 5 for the week and learnt such a lot about education and learning at Fair Oak. It was such a pleasure to have them as part of the Fair Oak Family. I am so incredibly proud of all of our children, particularly those in year 5, as we have truly developed as global citizens during this week. As I said to the children…Whilst there may be cultural differences and – the rather obvious – difference in language, play and kindness are universal. We will miss our extended members of the family. Huge thanks to Miss Coxhead and her amazing year team for putting together such a wonderful timetable for our year 5 children and for our friends from China. In October I will be going out to China with two teachers to see what we can learn and bring back to enhance our wider curriculum.



Thank you to those who attended the Open Evening on Monday 1st. I’m conscious that parental time is busy, so for next academic year I won’t hold a separate Open Evening for parents to talk through reports – although there will still be a reply slip for parents to comment on them. Instead, if parents wish to speak to the teacher, they can arrange this when convenient.


Transition day was held on Tuesday 2nd July and the children had a great time getting to know their new class teacher. As you can imagine, transition is important to us at all levels, and I’m so grateful that the staff work so hard to try and make everything ‘fit’ as best as possible.


Just as I was enjoying Transition day we got the call from OFSTED. This is something that I have been really looking forward to, as I am incredibly proud of our school. OFSTED were in on Wednesday 3rd and it was a joy to show them our school. The report, which will take the form of a letter, will be shared with parents as soon as possible – this may have to be after the summer holiday, due to the inspection taking place so close to the end of the academic year. Thank you so much to the parents and guardians of our children – once again, your feedback was exceptional. Thanks also to our governors for all they do. Huge thanks must also go to my staff team for working so hard. There was a real buzz around school on Tuesday evening – and our Chair of Governors, Rob, could feel this when he came in.


As you can read, Fair Oak Junior School is a busy place. It is also a very special place. Thank you for your continued support. The final newsletter of the academic year will be on Tuesday 23rd July – our last day of term. Thank you.


Mr De Silva
