Is your child 4 or will they turn 4 on or before 31 August 2020? If yes, they can start school in September 2020!
From 1 November 2019, Hampshire residents can apply online for a school place or collect an application form from us or any Hampshire Infant or Primary School.
We will be holding a number of Open Session for you to come and look round Fairfield to help you make your decision on whether to apply for our school. They will run from 9.30 to 11.00am and are as follows:
Thursday 14th November
Wednesday 20th November
Wednesday 27th November
Thursday 5th December
These sessions will include a talk from the Headteacher, a performance from some of our current children, a tour of the school and an opportunity to ask any questions you may have. From experience we have found that it is beneficial to come along without your child or younger siblings if possible. In addition part of the tour is upstairs, therefore it is difficult to accommodate pushchairs. Please click on the link below for details of our 'Meadow Days' where your child can come along for a taste of life at Fairfield!
To book your place on one of these sessions or discuss your individual needs, please call the school office on 02392 483029 or email email@example.com quoting 'Open Day' in the subject field. We would ask you to provide your child's name, date of birth and where they currently attend nursery or pre-school.
We look forward to welcoming you to Fairfield!
