We are extremely proud of
the achievements of our
school and it's learners
and hope by visiting our
website you will learn more
about our school, our
successes and our
wonderful community.

We were extremely proud of our outstanding record of achievement at the end of KS2 and our recent fantastic OUTSTANDING OFSTED. Our community provides a place in which our children are secure, respected, valued and above all else happy because we believe these are the essential ingredients for effective learning to take place. We strive for success for our learners in all aspects of their lives. We all aim to be the best we can be ! We provide opportunities to excel academically, socially and in a wide range of enrichment and extra curricular activities. We believe excellence can best be achieved through working in partnership with our learners, parents / carers and their families, staff, governors and local community. By working together we ensure every child has a happy and successful time at Fair Furlong.

We hope you find our site helpful and informative and always welcome your feedback.

"Fair Furlong Primary School has achieved the highest rating possible in its most recent Ofsted inspection.  Government inspectors visited the Withywood school last month and found it to be ‘outstanding’ overall and in all the five measures used such as quality of teaching and leadership.

Inspectors praised the school for having consistently above average standards gained in reading, writing and maths for the last five years.  The 418-pupil school with higher than average numbers eligible for extra pupil premium funding was previously judged as ‘good’ in 2010.

Highlights from the report include:


  • Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary;
  • The curriculum and ethos promotes and sustains a thirst for learning;
  • School leaders focus relentlessly on improving teaching, learning and caring;
  • Sports and clubs provision has improved which has increased participation;
  • The teaching of reading, writing, communication and maths is highly effective; and
  • Disadvantaged pupils make at least a term’s more progress than expected in every year group.

Fair Furlong Primary School Headteacher Emma Drew said:

“We are all extremely thrilled in gaining the outstanding grade from Ofsted. This is an achievement that we have all worked consistently towards for a number of years and although it is great to have the recognition from Ofsted it is a level we expect to work at every single day for our local community. 

“We are very fortunate at Fair Furlong to have an extremely strong team of children, families, governors and a wonderful highly skilled caring staff who are determined that everyone in our school can be ‘The Best We Can Be’. We would like to thank everyone who has been part of our journey and we are all proud to be part of Fair Furlong school.  We will continue to ensure our school is a place where all children thrive and are supported and challenged to achieve their potential and most importantly of enjoy learning together everyday.”
