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.

Parents, please do let the school know if you would like free paper copies of information contained on the website.
How are we in December? As I’m sure you have seen from our Twitter feed (@FairOakJS), such a lot has happened since the last newsletter. Mrs Sear organised a fabulous trip to the Houses of Parliament on Monday 25th November. This was a fantastic opportunity and I know that we are keen to organise further trips! If you would like to read more, please see below.
Teaching and Learning really are the core purpose of what we do in school. As such, I am delighted to let you know that staff will be trialling a new way of marking and ‘feedforward’ (rather than feedback). The impact of the new marking has been considerable in year 6 and we will be trialling it throughout the rest of the school after Christmas. Our whole staff team are really behind this. If you would like to find out more, please speak to your child’s teacher. Once the trial has finished, a new policy will be written and taken to governors. Whilst we are on our amazing staff – welcome to Mrs Cleaver. She has joined the family as part of our fantastic LSA team. Mrs Brown has been appointed as our Interim Maths Manager – and has some fantastic ideas. Mr Kingshott has also gained a site team member - Miss Saunders.
On Thursday 28th November, our incredibly supportive PSA held our annual Christmas Fayre. Following feedback from parents, the PSA decided to run one major Christmas event – the Winter Wonderland. Thank you so much for your support, help, fun, laughter and….money. Due to the PSA’s hard work and your support, we raised just over £4000, which is an incredible amount of money. The PSA will also be running the secret present room during the day on Friday 13th December in the music and drama room. Presents range from 50p to £3. There is no obligation for your child to go to the secret present room, but if they want to bring money to spend, please note that your child will be responsible for it and will need to bring it into school in a named purse or wallet. They should also bring a bag to carry their shopping home.
Whilst we’re not expecting snow or ice anytime soon, please see the picture detailing which paths will be salted.
In the unlikely event that we will need to close the school, we will inform parents as quickly as possible via email, Twitter, the Hampshire County Council School Closures website and on local radio.

At the previous PIPs meeting we talked about spelling. Please see information below, from Mrs Smith, about Spelling. Please note that our PIPs meetings are not for individual concerns. If you have a concern or a question, please refer to Page 8 of the Handbook to see the communication flow diagram.
Over this term the Fair Oak Family has supported many charities. Thank you for your support, particularly with the Shoe Box Appeal. Over 60 boxes were taken by Mrs Sear to support those in need. Thank you.
Have a lovely weekend.
