Latest update from the Newsletter:
Dear Fair Oak Family,
How have we got here? It seems unbelievable that there are only 8 school days left of this academic year. I’m just sorry that the year has been so disrupted for so many of you. However, it has been delightful to see children from years 3 and 5 in school over the past two week, and we look forward to welcoming the year 4 children into school next week. They have all had such a delightful time and realised that school is (relatively…ish) normal.
From Wednesday this week we started to send out reports. Please do get in touch with the office if you have not received your report (via email) by Wednesday 15th. I must say a huge thank you to my staff team for getting these organised. It’s strange to think that I have now proof read my last 600 reports from Fair Oak. If you have any feedback or would like to speak to your child’s teacher about the report, please do email or phone the school office.
In the last newsletter you were able to see the fantastic new artificial turf on the school field. Of course, I can’t forget the amazing transformation to the front of our school, including provision for even more scooters, although please remember to walk scooters on campus.
Once again, the work was carried out by Vita play and these areas have helped significantly with the management of our COVID19 Risk Assessment – mainly as play zones and registration zones. More importantly, they’re a bit bouncy!
The government recently published guidance to schools for opening in September. A communication will come out to parents before the end of the academic year, but please note that full details will be sent out during the beginning of August, as I don’t want to publish anything that needs to be corrected. As you can imagine with a school for 600 pupils, there is a lot to consider. In the meantime, please see below from Mrs Layley and Mrs Cooper regarding our findings over the past few months.
Surveys – thank you for completing the various survey monkey questionnaires/surveys/registers. In fairness, I can’t imagine how else we would have coordinated our COVID19 efforts, yet alone information about classes, trips etc. On that note, thank you to those who have completed the surveys for final day of term for year 6 and for the Stubbington residential.
Looking through the original diary for this year, today would have been the PSA’s Friday Extravaganza. For those of you who have not experienced it, well…wait for next year, as it is truly awesome. The PSA worked so hard this year, and it is a real shame that they were unable to continue to support the school with donations, but most importantly, with events for the children and for our Fair Oak Community. When a ‘new normal’ resumes, please do support our PSA.
At the end of this year we will saying farewell to Miss Gunn, as she will be joining the teaching team of St Bede’s in Winchester. A huge thank you to her for all she has achieved. We wish her well for her future career.
There will be one final newsletter for the year on the last day of term. In the meantime, I hope you have a good weekend and I look forward to seeing some of the children on Monday, including our Year fours.
