Welcome to Fair Oak Junior School!


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. 


See the update from Mr De Silva's latest newsletter below.


Parents, please do let the school know if you would like free paper copies of information contained on the website.



What an incredible two weeks we’ve had since the last newsletter. Mrs Layley and I have had the privilege of observing teaching and learning throughout the school. Initial feedback:

  1. Relationships are positive in and out of the classroom. Children are engaged in their learning
  2. Teachers have very good subject knowledge which is used to deepen children’s understanding through questioning
  3. Learning walls (English and Maths) and the classroom environment effectively support and scaffold pupil’s learning
  4. The marking policy (ratified by governors last year) is being used
  5. Clear evidence of CPA in maths. This is the use of Concrete resources, Pictorial representations and Abstract symbols (sums). Importantly, teachers are also asking children to use resources to support problem solving.
  6. Tasks are being varied to enable all pupils to achieve
  7. Behaviour in the classroom is good – as are learning behaviours.


Thank you to my whole staff team for their fantastic hard work and dedication. Due to this, the children have really settled into the pattern of learning. To improve this further - and to address our School Improvement Plan and areas of development following the observations - I would like to discuss teaching and learning at the first PIPs (Parents in Partnership) of the year. This will be held on Wednesday 6th November 2019 at 9.15am. If you would like to attend, please email to book a space. Alternatively, If you would like to find out more about learning at our school please see our Curriculum intent and…read the lovely write up in the Daily Echo.


School Council elections are an important part of our Pupil Voice and of our Values (see below).  It was a real pleasure to meet the newly elected councillors on Thursday afternoon and to award them with their ‘official badge of office’. Well done to all those who put themselves forward for the role. I know it can sometimes be upsetting when we are not elected, but I have been hugely impressed by the way children have congratulated their friends – once again, an excellent example of the Fair Oak Family at work! I am delighted to announce that the school council representatives for this year are:

As some of you may be aware from last year, we had pupils visiting us from China (this was also mentioned in the OFSTED report). On 20th October, I will be flying out to China with Mrs Tuxford and Miss Coxhead to speak to education authorities about teaching and learning in England, specifically at Fair Oak Junior School. This is a wonderful opportunity to enhance our global links with the added ultimate goal of potentially taking children to China on a residential – not something normally done in the junior age range! If you wish to find out more, please do come along to PIPs and follow the school Twitter Feed - @FairOakJS.
