FAIR OAK Junior School pupils have been praised for their “outstanding and impeccable behaviour.”

An inspection by the education watchdog found that excellent relationships exist between pupils and staff and that the school engages with parents very well.

With 600 students, Fair Oak Junior is led by head teacher Andrew De Silva who has been at the school since 2013 and in his present role since 2016.

In that time he has turned its fortunes around.

After receiving a “requires improvement” rating from Ofsted in 2013 the school is now rated as “good” following a full inspection in 2015.

Another short inspection this July found that it has maintained these high standards.

Located on the Botley Road, the site boasts “inspiring” classrooms equipped with interactive TVs which help pupils learning.

Amongst other things students have access to 3D-printers which they can use to develop their computer programming skills.

The school’s very own “TARDIS” means youngsters can “travel through space and time”, enjoying “immersive” learning experiences in the process.

Year four leader James Anderson said: “I have been here for a year and I love it.

“The feeling you get here is such a community feeling.

“I teach the whole primary curriculum.

“The staff are so welcoming and I have a fantastic team behind me.

“It is like one big family where the children come first.”
