**** RESULTS DAY 2020 PRESS RELEASE *****

Students at Fairfield High School have achieved very good GCSE results which the school feels realistically reflect their hard work, motivation and attainment.  The grades awarded are a combination of centre assessed grades and calculated grades from Ofqual. Teaching staff spent a long time considering the most accurate grade to award students, taking into account their previous assessment data and independent work, their effort and commitment and the improvement that staff were confident students would have shown, had they been able to sit their exams.

Sue Gaston, Head Teacher said  “We are very proud of all our Year 11 students who have had to contend with such huge disruption in their final year at Fairfield. These results are a genuine reflection of their performance over many months and are a well-deserved reward for both students and the staff who have nurtured them over five years. We hope that every student will be able to progress on to their chosen college course, training or apprenticeship confident that their exam results are a true reflection of their ability and potential”.

Macmillan Coffee Morning Charity Event

Friday 25th September 2020

Dear Parents/Carers

You may have seen from the adverts on television and social media that the annual coffee morning organised by the Macmillan Cancer Support to raise funds to fight cancer, is still going ahead this year despite the pandemic. Cancer doesn’t stop, and neither does their fight to end it.

For many years staff and students have supported the Macmillan coffee morning here at Fairfield and we wish to lend them our support this year too. Obviously, we will have to run it differently to previous years to adhere to Covid-19 guidelines but we are confident we can do this and keep everyone safe:

  • Friday 25th September – break time only.
  • Students remain in their bubble areas and cakes will be brought to them.
  • Cakes will be individually prepacked e.g. Mini rolls, Mr Kipling slices. We are NOT asking students to make or bring their own cakes in this year.
  • Prices are 50 pence per cake to a maximum of 2 cakes for £1. Bigger donations welcome!
  • No change will be given, so exact money is needed.
  • Money will be put straight into a pot and not counted for 72 hours.
  • If you would like to donate to the Macmillan charity and not take part in the cake sale, students are very welcome to donate straight into the pots!

This is a very important date in the school calendar and we hope that as many students as possible with join in. Thank you for your support.

Yours faithfully

**** ESSENTIAL INFORMATION FOR SEPTEMBER START TO TERM *****

Dear students and parents

We are looking forward to welcoming you all back into school later this week – Year 7 on Wednesday and Years 8-11 on Thursday!

Please refer to my August update letter which was emailed to you and is on our website, for what you will need to bring on your first day.  No one has their timetable yet, so you will need to bring your extended Smart Start equipment and most importantly, a packed lunch, drink and snacks!  No cans or fizzy drinks please.

Year 7 will also need their PE kit.

On arrival at school, staff will be on hand to welcome you and direct you to your Year Group area.

In order to help with the flow of traffic, please avoid driving down to school; if you need to then please observe the unofficial ‘one way’ system to keep traffic moving.

See you soon!

Arete Outdoor Activity Centre

As we are still staying safe and staying at home, what better way to embrace our time than to carry out some activities with our family in the great outdoors? The outdoor centre, Arete, that many of us have been lucky enough to visit and spend time in, have sent through some absolutely FANTASTIC activity ideas for us to have a go at. They are detailed and informative and VERY exciting.  It would be great if as many of you as possible could have a look at the activities and even better than that have a go at as many of them as you can.  If you do could you please take some photos of yourselves getting involved or the results of you undertaking the activities and then email them to me (sbebbington@gvsc.org.uk). I will then send some to the centre, as they are really keen to see how you all get on and what you can do, as well as putting some on to our school website
