Latest update from the Newsletter:
A very warm welcome back! I hope you all had an enjoyable summer. The children certainly have had some exciting stories to share and have been amazing, settling in so well. They have been an absolute pleasure to teach and are a credit to you all. Also a big welcome to our new year 3 pupils and families, they are settling in really well and are making a fantastic transition to the Juniors.
I would like to take this opportunity to say how pleased I am to be the Acting Headteacher here at FOJS. This is a very special school and one that I feel very privileged to lead. As such, I will always make time to talk with parents/carers, so please catch me if you have any problems or concerns. Where possible I will be at the main green gate at the beginning and end of each day, Mrs Cooper the Acting Deputy and Inclusion lead will also be around to provide help and support as will Mrs Gowers our Acting Assistant Headteacher and year 6 lead.
We also welcome a few new faces on the staff team. Welcome to Miss Kimber who has joined us as a year 4 teacher as well as Mrs James who has joined us as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant and Mrs Duran who has joined as a Learning Support Assistant. We are very excited to have them join the Fair Oak Family.
All of the staff have been so excited to see all of our children back in school, smiling and having fun and being so excited about their learning. The staff have adapted the curriculum and appreciate that all children will have returned with differing experiences from their time in lock down. Our main priorities, for the first few weeks, will be to address the children’s well-being, build up their resilience and ensure positive attitudes to learning are formed. As a school we have decided to operate year group bubbles, to allow us to deliver the excellent curriculum that we pride ourselves on.
We ask that parents / carers continue to assist us with the transition back to school by adhering to strict attendance and punctuality. As you can appreciate, getting the children back into a routine is of great importance to ensure we can start the year on the right track. We also thank all parents for their support with quarantining on the return from counties not on the UK safe list and also those that are adhering to the Government guidance. If you or your child shows any of the symptoms below please book in for a COVID test as soon as possible and inform the school of the child’s absence.
· a high temperature
· a new, continuous cough
· a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
· Click here for the link to get a test booked through the Government website.
As a school we will not be informing parents/carers if any child or adult is sent home displaying COVID related symptoms or does not come into work/school because of displaying symptoms. We will of course inform parents/carers if there is a positive test in school and the protocol will be activated. In the event of a positive test, we will inform the local Health Protection Team. They will advise us on the following actions including cleaning, isolation and partial/whole school closure.
Finally, I would like to thank the staff and Governors for their hard work and commitment to the school. We continue to work as a team with yourselves to ensure that the children receive the best experience in school and best education possible.
