General Information

The school office is usually the first point of contact for visitors to the school.  Most days it is a very busy place to be. We deal with lots of enquiries and aim to be as helpful as we can.  The office is staffed between 8.45am and 3.30pm.  Please leave a message on our answering machine if the phone isn’t answered and we will respond as soon as possible.

The school bursar is Mrs Jan Chambers and Mrs Rebecca Debbage is the School Administrator.

Holidays in term time

Please discuss with us any request for leave of absence prior to making a booking.  You are required under the Education Act (1996) to ensure your child attends school regularly.  We are only allowed to authorise leave of absence during term time in exceptional circumstances.  Leave of absence forms are available from the school office.

A few things we would ask of parents:

  • Please email us if your child is going home with someone else – the earlier in the day the better
  • Please let us know if your child is going to be absent from school due to illness
  • Please put name labels in your child’s uniform – without a child inside it all the uniform looks the same!

Text Messaging Service

From time to time you will receive a text message from’ Fairhvn Schl’.  These are usually reminders of things such as trips out, PE kit needed or special events.
