Fairlands Primary School and Fairlands Pre-School closed Friday 2 March due to a burst pipe

URGENT UPDATE. We have had a major water pipe burst on the upper site, which has created a significant amount of water flowing down the public footpath onto Sish Lane.

As a result of this, and due to the severe icy conditions, both the school and the pre-school will be CLOSED on Friday 2 March.

We anticipate the problem will be resolved over the weekend and that school will be open again on Monday 5 March. Please continue to check the website for updates.



School open Thursday

The school will be open Thursday, unless there is very significant snowfall during Wednesday night. 

Thank you for your support and cooperation today. We never take the decision to close lightly and based that decision on the best information we had at the time. Thank you to all the staff who made sure the early close went as smoothly as it did.

Please keep an eye on the school website for further updates. 

School is closing for the afternoon (Wednesday)

Due to heavy snow forecast until 7pm at least tonight, the school is closing for the afternoon. Please come and collect your children now from NORMAL COLLECTION POINTS. Please take care - although we have gritted extensively this morning, we are unable to clear footpaths during heavy snowfall. Please keep an eye on the website for further updates, especially with regard to possible continued closure tomorrow (Thursday). 

On Tuesday 27th of February, from 6.00 to 7.30pm, we are holding an open evening for prospective parents of children to our early years (Nursery and Reception).

The evening will begin at with a short talk from Mr Staples; parents are then invited to look around our early years setting and talk to staff. There will be information regarding the role of school governors, the school’s links to the Children’s Centre and speech and language provision.  Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served by Fairlands Faces. We welcome anyone interested in finding out more about their child's future at Fairlands!

Gas Leak - final update
