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.

Parents, please do let the school know if you would like free paper copies of information contained on the website.
Dear Fair Oak Family,
We have had another amazing fortnight, with so much excitement and success. On Monday 25th my amazing staff team received some training from the Primary Behaviour Support team to continue to support our outstanding relationships with the children. I also spoke to the staff about improvements to our curriculum. If you would like to find out more about the exciting curriculum plans, please do come to the next PIPs on Wednesday 27th March. Please book a space with the school office (email@example.com). At the meeting I will also be talking to parents about the new school prospectus, so that I can receive some feedback about different options.
During half term my fantastic site team created something of wonder …… our Corridor of Curiosity. The space is planned to inspire them with artefacts not directly related to school topics but which will encourage conversation and inquisitiveness. Already this is loved by children (and staff). It was wonderful to hear such positive feedback on Wednesday (6th) at Parents’ Evening. Please do take a look when you are next in school.
As part of our World Book Day celebrations, we have had the Book Fayre in School and our year 5 children met with author, Kieron Larwood. Please do look at our Twitter feed for more information. Thank you to the children (and parents) for their support with World Book Day. The children looked fabulous in their costumes. Whilst we are on dressing up – next Friday (15th) is red nose day. If you wish for your child to take part, please feel free to send them in with appropriate accessories. School uniform must however be worn. We will not be collecting donations so you should do this by other means.
The most excitement was probably reserved for last night when our Rock Challenge children competed in the annual competition. I am delighted to announce that we won the Southampton stage and are on our way to the Southern finals. (pictures can be seen on Twitter @FairOakJS). I am so utterly proud of all the children, parents, volunteer helpers, staff – but in particular…Miss Coxhead. Well done to all. Joshua in year 5 has written this note to Miss Coxhead, which seems to ‘sum everything up’ perfectly:
Dear Miss Coxhead and all your team
I am writing to congratulate you for your phenomenal performance which has resulted in your victory at Rock Challenge. Your success has been achieved because of your time, dedication and effort. You, your team and the children who participated should be proud of your legendary and stunning Rock Challenge performance. Your achievements are outstanding because you made Fair Oak number 1.
Joshua – Year 5
Have a wonderful weekend.
Mr De Silva
