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.

Dear Fair Oak Family,

Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun! Fun is certainly a huge aspect of our learning here at Fair Oak – this is, of course, along with keeping your child safe, engaged, enthused and, hopefully, inspired. We have received some incredibly supportive feedback about our curriculum changes. The impact of these changes have been significant on your child’s learning. This was seen during the first parents’ evening on Wednesday 7th November. Thank you for all those who attended. We look forward to seeing you for the next evening on Tuesday 20th November.

It is so important that we continue to work together to support your child’s learning. Please do let us know if you have any concerns about any aspect of the school and thank you for refraining from posting concerns on social media. That being said…thank you for all the wonderful comments/emails/informal chats about the new video newsletter – which can be accessed from our twitter feed (@FairOakJS). The video is also posted on the school website. Whilst I’m on thanks – a huge thank you to those who have emailed in about the school following our year 2 tours. Your feedback is hugely appreciated. My whole staff team work so hard and it’s so wonderful to receive these comments. 

If you would like to talk in more detail about aspects of school improvement, future plans or uniform, please do attend the next Parents in Partnership meeting at 9.15 on Wednesday 14th November. Please email to book a space. 

On Thursday 1st November, we interviewed for Higher Level Teaching Assistants to join the staff. We appointed three – which is great news for the whole school community. One has already started, Miss Taylor. Please do say hi to her if you see her out and about in the mornings or afternoons. We have also appointed Mr Kingshott to take over as our Site Manager from Mr Hall. Mr Kingshott knows the school very well, as he is already a member of our site team. 

You may well see quite a few new faces around school. This is mainly due to our incredibly strong relationship with the University of Winchester. Being able to offer student placements is such an important part of sustaining the profession and, certainly for students who are placed with us, they receive a fantastic learning experience, not only from my talented staff team, but also from your child. The university also provides us with quite a few volunteers.

On Monday 5th November I had the privilege to show the Head teacher from Owslebury Primary School around our wonderful school. She came to look specifically at our resources in IT and was incredibly impressed with what we have – which we sometimes take for granted. That being said, you may have been informed by your child that we had no IT in school on Tuesday 6th, as we had to ‘detox’ the network – please note my distinct lack of technical vocabulary!

On Friday 2nd November Mrs Heads took members of the Junior Road Safety Team to Botley Park Hotel for their training. At some point in the near future, the whole team will feature in the newsletter. I’m sure that they’ve got lots to share!

On Friday 9th November we held our Remembrance Assembly in the school hall, which featured the 2 minutes silence. This was observed impeccably. Thank you so much to my year 6 readers Jack, Jack, Flo and Robyn, as they delivered a very moving assembly. Do have a look at the video newsletter on Twitter, as it features the children. The Fair Oak Remembrance Wreath will be laid in the village on Sunday by Toby and Eloise. Thank you to them for representing the Fair Oak Family. I leave you with the words of Laurence Binyon.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Mr De Silva
