Dear Fair Oak Family,


Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all well. Following the Oak Bites sent to you on Monday, the Government has sent out further documentation relating to the partial opening of schools. Whilst there are still some questions, the guidance is clear and is helping me and my team to put together a plan for the proposed opening of Fair Oak Junior School for Year 6 children from June 1st 2020.


What does this mean to you as parents?




Your next step

My child is already coming to school as they are classified as Vulnerable and/or because my role is classified as a Critical Key Worker

Your child can continue to come to school.

Continue as you are.

My child is in year 6.

Pending further government guidance, your child will be able to attend school from June 1st 2020.

Await a letter (to be sent soon) which will include details – including a link to a survey, so that the school can plan staffing needs/timetable etc.

My child is in year 6, but I do not want to send him/her to school

At the moment, the guidance states that parents will not be penalised for non-attendance. However the government is encouraging year 6 children back to aid transition.


The school will continue to offer the current home learning package.

Complete the survey (from the point above).


In terms of education at home – continue as you are.

My child is in year 3/4/5

Your child will not be able to attend school until further guidance is obtained from the government (even if they have a sibling in year 6).


The school will continue to offer the current home learning package, but please be mindful that the level of staff feedback may need to change as staff will be required in school.

Continue as you are. Please be mindful that you can only do your best with your child’s learning. The school fully appreciates that you will have many plates to spin.



If you are a year 6 parent, please await a letter from me, which will give you more details about our initial thoughts to open the school to your child; as you can imagine, this isn’t a quick task. In order for the plan to be a success, the letter will provide you a link to a survey. Please do complete this when it is sent, even if you are not planning to send your child back to school on June 1st.


This week’s newsletter will include an update from our Chair of Governors, Rob Gardner, about the Head Teacher Recruitment process.


Update on Year 6 Hoodies – Message from those organising the hoodies

The hoodie warehouse is hoping to open in 6 – 8 weeks. Assurances have been given that our order will be the first produced. If this cannot be done, then they will reimburse our money.


Have a good end to the week.
