Welcome

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,

It seems incredible that this is the last newsletter for this half term. The learning in school continues to improve and it was lovely to share our progress with governors at our Standards and Curriculum meeting on Wednesday 8th. On Friday 10th, we held interviews for our English Manager post and I am delighted to announce that Mrs Smith has been appointed to this role. She has already been doing this job since September, and really shone during the interview process – which was, as you would expect, incredibly robust.

On the 7th, we welcomed students from Winchester University who are at Fair Oak to undergo their teacher placements. This learning experience is incredibly important to students and I believe that schools have a duty to ensure that the very best, motivated, inspired and dedicated professionals join the teaching profession, as it is more than a job – it is an absolute privilege!

At the most recent PIPs meeting, I talked to parents about our new look prospectus. Once this has been finalised, I will inform parents on where to find it on the school website. The next PIPs meeting will be held on Wednesday 12th June at 9.15am. I will be talking about the School’s Vision to Provide Outstanding Learning Opportunities to all pupils. If you would like to see our Curriculum Intent, please click here. Whilst I’m on parents, please note that if you enter the school site during playtime or lunchtime, you will be approached by at least one member of staff – this is to ensure that we keep all children safe on site. Thank you for your cooperation.

During this week our year 6 children have been undergoing the statutory assessment tests, SATs. I am incredibly proud of all the children. They have all worked so hard for the past 3 ‘and a bit’ years and they certainly tried their best. I must say a huge thank you to the rest of the school too; learning behaviours in the school are always outstanding, but were particularly impressive during the SATs. Thanks also to our parents for their support and encouragement. I have received some lovely emails and letters thanking us for our hard work, but – as I said earlier – it is a privilege!

Well done to our Boys football team who qualified for the national football finals in Birmingham on the 4th. They got through to the final, losing 4-3 on penalties. We are incredibly proud of them – what a fantastic achievement! On Tuesday 21st, our footballers will be heading to Wolverhampton to represent Southampton at the Premier League Primary Stars Final – good luck to them and thanks, once again, to the parents and Mr Stredwick.

We have had some fantastic photography entries. Mrs Tuxford has been so impressed with the creativity seen by the children. The votes have been counted and winners will be announced next week. Please view our twitter feed (@FairOakJS) to see a picture.

On Wednesday 15th, we had our Full Governing Body Meeting. The impact from the meeting was:

  • The Governors are proud of the English Manager appointment we have made and the positive impact this will have on our children
  • We feel ready for OFSTED
  • All the documentation is fully focused on the pupils
  • It’s good that staff wellbeing is on the agenda at Fair Oak Junior School

Have a wonderful weekend.

 

Mr De Silva
