Mrs Gilkey

Mrs Gilkey would like to pass on her grateful thanks for all of your kind thoughts, messages, cards, gifts and prayers at what has been, and still is, a heartbreaking time for her and her family. She will be in and out of school over the next couple of weeks and knows that you are all thinking of her. To make it easier for her to return to work, she would appreciate no fuss being made when you see her as it will be difficult enough. Thank you for your support and understanding.

 

SAFEGUARDING - IMPORTANT

Please note, it is school policy that parents accompany their child onto the playground until the school doors open and they watch their child go through the door. This applies to ALL YEAR GROUPS unless we have permission slips for Y6 children. Thank you.

Friday 26th May

Well what an incredibly busy week again at school.  We had the pleasure of watching the Year 1 assembly yesterday as they told us all about the history of toys and sang some wonderful songs. Then this morning we said a sad farewell to Mrs. Smith from our Owl Club as she starts a very well deserved retirement after nearly 30 years at Fairfield!  Mrs, Whealing from Year 1, is also starting a new journey as she takes on Mrs. Smith’s role.

Uniform

We were talking today about how scary it is that we are approaching our final half term of this year!  Where has that time gone?  It seems like a good time to share reminders with parents about uniform, especially if buying new uniform, bags etc for September and also to remind you of our policies regarding items brought into school. Please refer to our website for a detailed uniform policy.  

PE /Games Kits especially should follow the guidance. Children generally wear their PE kit for 2 days a week—this becomes their school uniform on those days and so it is important that they look smart.  Track suits bottoms/leggings/t-shirts should be absolutely plain with no branding or patterns.  School bags have to be stored in a small cloak area in EYFS/KS1 and in lockers in KS2.  Therefore, please ensure that the bags are not too large.   Thank you for your support with this.

We do have a huge amount of good quality uniform available in school that is free to a good home.  Please contact us if there are any particular items or sizes you require and we will see what we can sort out.

  Measles

The local authority have informed us of increased cases of measles in the local area and asked us to share the following information.

Measles is highly infectious and can spread easily. Vaccines can help protect us all from serious and highly infectious disease and illness. The MMR vaccine is a safe and highly effective way to protect children from three infectious disease: measles, mumps and rubella. Two doses are required to be best protected. Latest figures show that vaccination rates for MMR amongst Bury residents are lower than recommended to protect against measles circulating in our communities. 85% of children under five are fully vaccinated compared to the WHO recommendation of 95%. It’s never too late to catch up with the MMR vaccination.

-Children should receive their two scheduled doses of MMR vaccine on time, at the ages of 12 months and 3 years and 4 months, but can be vaccinated later if doses have been missed.

-There is no upper age limit to offering MMR vaccine and adults who are not protected should also be encouraged to speak to their GP

- All childhood vaccinations in England are free via the NHS, contact your local GP to book an appointment.

 -People can check if they are fully vaccinated by either looking at their child’s Red Book (personal child health record) or contacting their GP

Next Saturday will be our annual summer fair.  We are praying for dry weather so keep those fingers crossed. There will be a wide selection of stalls including tombolas, food, a bouncy castle, ice cream van and a special guest appearance!  The fair will be open 11-1pm and entrance will be via the gate onto the back playground.   Please send donations for the various stalls into school next week. Any donations for the bric a brac stall can be sent at any time. We are very grateful for all your support and donations for this important fundraising event for school.  We look forward to seeing as many as possible on the day!

Online Safety

We are having an increasing number of issues that are happening outside of school involving social media with our Key Stage 2 children.  We constantly remind our children of how to keep themselves safe on line and the age restrictions for various apps.  However, we are still getting friendship issues that spill into school from home, often stemming from messages that have been sent on Snap Chat or Whats App. Neither of these apps should be accessed by primary school aged children. Our message to the children is, if you would not say it in person then don’t say it.

As we explain to the children we cannot stop them accessing various things online as we are not their parents.  When I do talk to some parents there is a sense of that our children understand technology more than we do. As a parent I would agree with this, especially when new apps are coming out all the time!  Below is a link to some guidance for parents on social media etc from the NSPCC

Mention

I am so very proud of all our Year 6 children this week for their positive attitudes in their SATs.  As I have told them all, they are so much more than just a test result and all we want is that they always try their best in whatever they do in life. Well done Year 6!

 Meet the governor

Hello Everyone,
My name is Steph Walch, I have a son who attends Fairfield CP in Year 6. I have been a governor for coming upto a year and am part of the pupils outcome committee and Headteacher review panel.
I work as a Specialist Trainer in Apprenticeships, specialising in Property for my day job. To me primary school is much more than just learning how to read and write, it sets our children up with the skills for life and I'm immensely proud to be able to influence how Fairfield help our young ones become the inspiration they truly are.
I want Fairfield to continue to be the place of Happiness & High Standards for a long time to come. 

Rochdale Old Road

We had a very near miss this week with a child running across Rochdale Old Road between cars and was VERY narrowly missed being hit by a car.   Once again the traffic is a nightmare with the roadworks but we are lucky to have a crossing outside school.  Please ensure that you and your children cross safely at the crossing.  We have spoken to Year 6 who may bring themselves to school about the importance of road safety. Thank goodness that we are not ending the week on a very tragic note.

Owl Club

A letter was sent out this week with regards to changes to Owl Club that will take effect from Monday 5th June.  Please ensure you take a minute to read over it.  Thank you!

Uniform

Although it does not feel very summer like at the moment, the weather is getting slightly warmer.  As a result (and because children do not seem to feel the cold!) more children are taking off their jumpers and cardigans, we have piles of uniform appearing as there are no names in it to be able to rehome it.  Please take some time this weekend, even if it is just with a pen or marker to write your child’s name in their jumpers/cardigans and coats.  It is very frustrating as a parent when uniform keeps disappearing.

Spring Disco

This was a great success and we made nearly £400 profit that will go back to purchase extra things for our children at school such as extras for outdoor learning, play equipment.   If you missed out this time, do not worry as there will be many more future discos and other events.

Meet the governor

Hi everyone, My name is Paul Greenhalgh and I work as the Headteacher at Hazel Wood High School in Bury. I have worked in Bury schools for nearly 15 years in senior roles and I am thrilled to be a governor at Fairfield Primary. It has been really helpful and very special to get to know the students at Fairfield especially those who come to us at Hazel Wood. From my short time as a governor I have been able to visit the school and talk with staff and students and I have been so impressed by everything I have seen and I look forward to doing what I can to make sure Fairfield is always an amazing place to be.
