Dear Fair Oak Family,


Happy Thursday! Another busy week draws to a close and the children have adapted well to the new every day routines and arrangements in school as we knew they would.



Please note: The school office will also be closed on this day.




As mentioned in yesterday’s Oak Bites, please find below our PSHE letter, earlier than planned:






Botley Road, Fair Oak, Eastleigh, Hampshire, SO50 7AN

T: 023 80 693195


Head Teacher: Andrew De Silva


Dear Parents/Guardians,

You will be aware that, as a part of your child’s educational experience at Fair Oak Junior School, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education that gives children and young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.  This year, with the return to schools from the coronavirus lockdown, wellbeing and emotional support will be at the forefront of our whole school recovery plan.

From September 2020 the Department for Education is making Relationships and Health Education compulsory in all primary schools.

The new guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.

Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, it will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and will help them take responsibility for their own well-being.

All PSHE sessions will be age-appropriate and meet the needs of all pupils in the class.  It will be the responsibility of the class teacher to adapt the lessons to suit the needs of the children in their class whilst covering the statutory requirements.

Parents have the right to request that their child be withdrawn from some or all of the sex education delivered as part of the statutory RSE following discussions with the head teacher.

There is no right to withdraw from Relationships Education or Health Education or any content from the statutory science curriculum. This means that pupils cannot be withdrawn from lessons on the Changing Adolescent Body.

This guidance will form part of our school’s PSHE education programme which is taught throughout the school in every year group and is monitored and reviewed regularly.

We will be using the thematic scheme of work recommended by the PSHE Association which ensures progression in knowledge, attitudes and values, and skills – including the key skills of social and emotional learning, known to improve outcomes for children. The attached table shows a brief overview of topics covered in each year group.  Other schools in the Wyvern cluster will also be using the PSHE Association recommendations which means a consistent approach to covering all objectives by the end of Year 11.

All teaching in PSHE will take place in a safe learning environment and be underpinned by our school ethos and values. A variety of opportunities will be provided for pupils to ask questions to further their understanding and to find out more about what affects them personally.  You will be informed via our year group newsletters which PSHE topics will be covered in your child’s lessons.  Details will follow from class teachers nearer the time.

It is important that there is open conversation between parents and school to ensure that the children are given the best PSHE provision as we are our children’s top two preferred sources of information about sex, relationships and other aspects of PSHE learning.

If you have any questions, please contact the school office.

Yours sincerely,


Mrs K Layley                                                                         Mrs E Downer

Deputy Headteacher                                                       PSHE Lead
