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!

Growth Mindset workshop with BMX Academy

By Mental Health Lead, in SEND SUPPORT - Monday, 30 October 2023

We had an inspiring first day back at Fairlands today. Mike Mullen, a BMX champion, came to talk to us about how he developed a growth mindset and how by never giving up he went on to become a multi award winner. 

Mike was extremely passionate about his favourite sport and spoke all about how he had to demonstrate the values of resilience and determination in order to become the best that he could. He told us that he got used to making mistakes and instead of thinking of them as failures, he called them opportunities for 'FLEARNING'! 

After an awesome assembly for the whole school, year 5 got to spend the day with Mike learning how to perform stunts and tricks. We are so proud of all the year 5 pupils for giving it a go and showing great enthusiasm! Mike was blown away by the amount of pupils who actually learnt to ride a bike during their session todday. I bet you feel really proud of yourself if that was you! 

Next time you're finding something tricky, think back to what Mike told us - 'We can't do it ... YET!'
