SUMMER TERM 2 WEEK 2

A busy and warm week this week at Fairlight.

FORMER PUPIL UPDATE

This is Jesse. A former Fairlight pupil proudly showing of some of his medals and a new (old) trophy. 

The trophy is because Jesse is now one of the fastest Under 15's in the whole country.

Jesse can often be seen at the end of the day collecting his sister and talking to Mr. Jordan and Miss Lynn at the gate- usually telling us about his various achievements. Both sporting and academic. 

These now include being scouted by Premier League Rugby teams who can see his talent for speed and want to test this also. 

Jesse and his whole year group are fondly remembered (I joke) by Jezz, Stancie and the lunchtime staff as one of those year groups who could start a football game or a push and shove in a cupboard. They were highly competitive and always active. Which is now starting to show some fruit. 

Well done Jesse. We are all very proud of you.

PRIMARY ATHLETICS TEAM

Good luck to the Fairlight Athletics Team who will be at Withdean on Wednesday. 

Jesse has offered to come and give us some tips however as his sister is in the sprint team we have decided to decline. 

GOVERNORS STALL AFTER SCHOOL

Who are the Governors at Fairlight?

What do they do? How can I speak to them? I hear you ask...

Our Governors will be having a stall in the playground after school on Monday 27th June where you can come along and find out more. Or just come along and chat.

PARENTS OPEN SESSION

On the afternoon of Wednesday 13th July from 2pm parents will be able to come into school to see their children's classrooms, to look at their book and work and to chat to their classteacher.

This is not a formal parents evening so a chat is okay- if you need a more formal meeting following your child's report then you need to book this with your child's classteacher.

There is also a chance for you to go up to the new classroom and see where they will be next year- they can take you there.

INTERVIEWING IN SCHOOL

A busy week in school this week with some new teacher interviews.

Once I am in a position to inform you of who we will be appointing and their roles in school I will send that out.

However to give context we had 70+ applications. Which is amazing.

We invited 11 to interview and ended up over 2 days interviewing 10 candidates.

This is excellent numbers and goes to show what a great place Fairlight is to come and work at.

 

GOAL POWER

As a school we are extremely proud of our Girls Football players and team.

We have a strong history of players representing the school, the district, Galaxy, Brighton and Hove Albion and Lewes and progressing through the various pathways available to them.

These excellent role models meant when the Museum of Brighton was putting together ideas for an exhibition around the upcoming UEFA Women's Euros https://www.uefa.com/womenseuro/ - which will take place in Brighton. 

Details of the exhibition at below and more details of events will be coming soon.

SUMMER TERM 2 WEEK 1

Welcome back to everyone.

I hope you all had a good break and enjoyed the extra long holiday celebrations.

THE TERM AHEAD

The term ahead is a busy one in school.

We have some excellent Summer Term Learning happening in classrooms and outside (weather permitting).

In other parts of the school we are preparing for further ahead- looking at dates and things for September 2022 and beyond.  

Once we have this confirmed they will be published here.

 

ASSESSMENTS, MODERATION AND REPORTING

We are still in "SATS" mode across the school as some children continue with these assessments.

Year 6 have completed their SATS week however we are being externally moderated for our Year 6 writing.

This means that external moderators will be coming into school to see the range of writing evidence we have collated and to look at our teaching and learning principles around writing and of course our judgements on the writing.

Year 6 are therefore just finishing off and focusing on getting their writing to the best level they can.

Teachers are of course extremely calm about this!!!!!

Year 2 and Year 1 are completing their SATS assessments in class.

Reading, phonics and anything else we can find out. 

And of course teachers across the whole school are busy writing end of year school reports and undertaking end of year assessments. 

GOVERNORS BEING GOVERNORS

The Governors continue to meet termly to discuss key areas of the school.

They are currently discussing areas around the future of the school and have undertaken training and attended meetings run by the Local Authority. 

If you want to find out more about what the governors do or about being a governor then please check out the governors page https://www.fairlight.brighton-hove.sch.uk/head-teachers-office/governors 

VACANCIES AT FAIRLIGHT

Over the coming weeks we will be holding a number of interviews for new staff to join the Fairlight Team.

Once these have taken place I will be writing to tell you who will be joining us at Fairlight as well as who will be leaving us.
