Welcome, Bienvenue, Witamy, Svāgat, Huān yíng
Opened in 1887, Fairfields Primary is the oldest school in Basingstoke, Hampshire. Parents, grandparents and great grandparents all have fond memories of their time at our school. We are proud to say that many changes have occurred in the years since the school opened; education is constantly changing and this school strives to meet the needs of the modern child. At Fairfields Primary School we have room for 420 children, from 4-11 yrs in seven year groups.
Last week, years 3 to 6 took part in an online Mathletics competition. We are very pleased to announce that 6W achieved a stunning total of 365,947 points and came first in the world! 5W came 3rd in the U.K. with 205,288 points, 6P came 7th with 137,581 points and 5S came 11th with 115,606 points. The most a child could score for a correct mathematical answer was 10 points so this means that all classes achieved thousands of correct answers! Very well done to all involved.
No more queuing in the office or having to find the correct change to send into school with your child - We now have an easier way to pay for any school expenses including Osmington Bay, Freddie's Club, school trips and instrumental tuition. You can pay at home (or in school if you don't have internet access at home), using your debit or credit card, through our new online payment system.
All you need to do is click on the ONLINE PAYMENT SYSTEM link on the right and it will take you to the login page of the payments website. You should have received a letter with your child's unique link code, along with intructions on setting up your account. Please ring the school office if you have mislaid the letter, as we can issue a new one.
