Dear Fair Oak Family,
Happy Monday… What a chilly start to the week!
Building Work Update
As many of you will have seen, we are well under way with our scheduled building work. What used to be the year 4 playground, which connects the Infants and Juniors has been cornered off for the builder's compound to be erected. The Millenium Garden has been excavated ready to, in time, become a hard playing surface for the children and the staff car park has been blocked off ready for digging the foundations and creating and new entrance to the school. I wanted to take this opportunity to reassure our local community that any commemorative trees, plaques, benches will be carefully relocated and remain pride of place within the school grounds. Also, a number of trees have, as part of the build needed to be cut down and removed. However, Hampshire County Council alongside the arboriculturist have carefully considered the impact on the environment and we can assure you that they will be replanting more trees on the school grounds to offset this.
Thank you to those of you who have uploaded the key assessment pieces highlighted on the year group timetables. Where possible, can we ask that these pieces of work are completed independently / unaided so that we as a school receive a true reflection of your child's ability and can be used to pitch work correctly as support with future planning.
Some of your children will have been undergoing Emotional Literacy Support (ELSA) in school prior to the lockdown. Whilst these sessions usually run for 6 weeks as an intervention, some children require further work, and some children will now need more support with regards to managing their emotions with the continuation of the pandemic. If your child is struggling, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us as we can offer support, direct you to resources and where necessary provide virtual interventions or school-based interventions for those in school.
