For Your Information
The summer holidays will finally be here at 215pm on Tuesday 23rd July and hopefully the sun will make an extended appearance too!
 
There are lots of things available to families throughout the summer and we have displayed this information on the noticeboards in the alleyway between the main gates to both sites. We have listed activities to do, cheap or free places for children to eat and information about courses happening for families supporting children with additional needs. Don't forget to take a photo when you are collecting your child at the end of the day!
 
We are aware that the holidays are not always easy as normal routine and everyday life is suddenly changed (and that's for children too, not just us adults!). If you are finding it challenging, then please visit our website page which lists the support agencies available: Signposts to support home adults
 
We hope you all have an enjoyable break and can't wait to see you back on Wednesday 4th September for another exciting year ahead!

Parent Forums

By Mrs Herron, in Equalities, Diversity & Inclusion - Thursday, 4 May 2023

Before the Easter break, we held our first Parent Forum to discuss equality, diversity and inclusion at Fairlands, with a particular focus on views about racial equity and racism.  It was a heartfelt and open discussion that raised many points to be considered.  Thank you to the parents who were able to attend and share their views.  Everything that was discussed has gone towards the actions that we are now taking to support our whole school community in this area.

We are not stopping there, though.  We would like to give everyone the chance to share their views and so we have planned further sessions where we would like to invite you to come and discuss equality at Fairlands.  The details have already been sent out, but here is a reminder of the invite to attend:

All the sessions will be with Mrs Herron and Miss Brooker, and will take place in the upper hall at 2pm.
