Summer News

Friday 24th June

Moving Up Day

Now the children know who their new teacher will be in September, they will get the chance to spend the morning with them on Wednesday in their new classroom. Good luck to Year 6 on their high school visits too.   Mrs. Foster will have the pleasure of working with children from all across the school next year as an academic mentor in the mornings and continuing her amazing work as Special Needs Coordinator in the afternoons.

Uniform and bags

From Wednesday next week, the uniform rails will be up and running in the foyer.  Please feel free to come and browse and hopefully find some uniform that you need for September. It will operate as an honesty box donation for items. 

If you are super organised and are already thinking about school bags for September, please can we request that bags are no bigger than a standard school reading bag size and not backpack size. The children need to store their bags in trays or lockers so they need to be able to fit safely in to that space.  I do wonder if some of our children are heading on holiday sometimes with the size of their bags! J

Please also save any crazy hair styles for the summer holidays too, including shaved patterns.

Attendance

Well done to the classes above 96%. I wonder if any class can get 100% next week?

School total-93.92%

Classes for September

This is always a funny time of year as there is still so much to do before we finish for the summer holidays but staff are also busily planning and thinking about September.   On 29th June, the children will have the opportunity to spend the morning with their new teacher and support staff.  We are changing things slightly for September in that we will not have any mixed year group classes.   Children will be in a class with their age group.  Below is the picture of where staff will be.

 School Grid

As mentioned last week, we will be going live on Tuesday 21st June with our new ordering system for school meals.  The new system means you can order your child’s meal from home with your child in advance but no later than 8:55am on the day.  If we have your email address on our system, you should have received an invite/parent guide link to set up an account.  I was speaking to Mrs. Clarkson, our school cook, today and she can already see some orders coming in.   If we do not have your email address, it is crucial that we receive it asap so we can get you set up.   There may be some initial teething issues whilst we get it up and running but it will all be worth it.  

  Parent Governor

We now have a new parent governor joining us. Stephanie Walch, whose son is in Penguins class.

Below is her application statement.  Congratulations Stephanie and welcome to the team!

 I have a son at the school in year 5 and he has been at Fairfield all his school life right from reception. I am a Specialist Trainer and have been for several years so Education is not an unknown to me, my background is in Estate & Letting Agency. I currently have a DBS and hold an up to date knowledge of safeguarding and child protection. On a day-to-day basis my role is to not only teach over 16’s but to also make sure that they have the necessary support for their training and their outside life. If children are happy outside of school, then it makes school much more enjoyable. Education to me is much more than what the curriculum says and there are many ways for a child to learn. I am passionate about making sure that children learn in the best way for them with the help and support of others. Having a son who has a diagnosed special needs condition has helped me to look outside of the box and understand that everyone doesn’t fit into the stereotype of a “normal child”. I would like to be part of the school and have an influence on any changes to bring it into this ever-changing world, with the right support for the staff.

Friday 10th June

We have had an exciting week in school for our first week back with some interesting creatures appearing in EYFS!  I know several of the year groups have visits coming up too so please can we ask that payment for these is made on ScoPay asap.  Unfortunately if not enough payments have been made experiences such as Zoo2U and visits out of school may have to be cancelled as school cannot afford to subsidise them all. Thank you for your support.

Uniform

Just a reminder that all children are expected to wear full school uniform, including a tie or school

PE kit on PE days, which includes plain tracksuit/leggings and tshirts.  If your child has had a gold tie, please can we ask that it is returned after the week. We seem to have lost a lot of them!

School Grid

We have another step into the 21st century at Fairfield in the next few weeks, as we are going digital with the way we order school meals.   School Grid allows parents to order meals at home with their child so they can talk together about what they would like to eat.  Watch out for a parent guide coming soon which explains about the app needed to access this.  If you would like your child to have school meals rather than a packed lunch, please contact the school office.

Parent Governor

Just a reminder that our vacancy for our parent governor role closes next Wednesday 15th at 3pm.  Please see the earlier Parent Hub message sent regarding this role.  If you require a paper copy of the application or want to discuss it any further, please just contact school.

Friday 27th May

Well what a busy week this has been in school!  Starting with the summer fair last Saturday, our sports day, the Headteacher’s tea party today and ending with a wonderful indoor street party celebration to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee-which even included a visit from our very own Fairfield Queen!  Please see Twitter on our website for lots of pictures! I felt very emotional watching all my Fairfield superstars singing the national anthem.

Our young leaders also shared this lovely poem together as they planted our commemorative Platinum Jubilee Rose.

As we look back over your 70 years reign, we plant this rose tree to remember your name.

The love you have for your country is clear to see, your horses, your corgis and your family.

We love to see you adorned with your crown, on special occasions, all the year round.

We thank you for your service across the world, we know where you are when your flag is unfurled.

Congratulations your Majesty on your Platinum Jubilee, to commemorate this occasion Fairfield plant this rose tree.

Friday 20th May

We are very excited for the upcoming events that we are doing linked to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.  These start tomorrow with our Summer Fair.  Entrance will be via the gate/path on the field from 11am. It will end at 1pm. There will be a wide range of stalls, food and fun to be had so please come on down!

Next week in school we have a very busy week with Sports Day (hopefully on Tuesday!), lots of learning about Her Majesty and then a Royal Street Party at lunchtime on Friday.  Remember to wear your red, white and blue!

Consideration of others

Polite request that we show consideration of others when on or around the school grounds.  I know parking is an issue, at most schools I think, but please just be mindful of where you park so you are not blocking any of our neighbour’s drive ways.   I have also been approached several times about congestion on the path coming on to the playground.  If we can try and keep to the left as we enter and exit the school grounds that would help ensure everyone can avoid soggy feet on the grass!  Thank you for your support with this

Ensuring that the children have a love of reading is one of our absolute passions at Fairfield.  The ability to read just unlocks a whole world.  So staff were working hard yesterday receiving training on our new phonics scheme that we will be using fully from September.
It is called Super Sonic Phonic Friends.   Supersonic Phonic Friends Have a look at their website to see what it is all about!   EYFS have already trialled it and the children are loving it!

Young Leaders

Our Young Leaders did a super piece of work together to promote recycling at school before Easter.  The posters promoting it are now displayed around school and the amount of recycling at lunchtimes has increased.  Their next initiative is to focus on Healthy Eating, especially packed lunches.  They will be doing some research into the content of the packed lunches that are being brought to school and comparing them to nutritional values within school meals.     Watch this space for updates!

Well what a busy first week back.  Our Early Years children have been enjoying their new outdoor area.  It is looking great and this is just the beginning as there is much more to come! The goats

are also loving their extended outside space too!  

Attendance Update

Please look on our website at Our Attendance Policy which has been reviewed.  We are aware that it has been a very disrupted couple of years for the children and that we now want them all in school every day.  The national aim for attendance is a minimum of 96%.  We are currently as a school sitting at 94.1%.  Let’s strive to get above 96%.  I will share each week the class totals and see who the attendance champions are! Well done to the classes above 96%.
