Whilst many students are now at home to limit the spread of COVID-19 children of essential and key workers are still attending school each day.

Teachers, who are working on rotational basis with small groups of students, are still able to make use of the resources provided through our ‘Building Young Futures’ programme:

  • Northlands Wood Primary Academy in Haywards Heath has benefited from financial assistance from Fairfax for its Forest School Programme, which is enhancing learning for students, beyond the classroom.
  • The Forest School Practitioners at Oakwood School in Horley are enabling students to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem, through hands on learning experiences in a natural environment with trees.
  • Fairfax is proud to support Oathall Farm, whose contribution both as a curricular support and to students’ personal development is nationally recognised as a centre of excellence.
  • Fairfax sponsored the first ever Forest Schools summer camp at Warden Park. Managing Director Jon Ball attended the secondary school as a student and counts former Warden Park school teacher Peter Chisholm MBE as a mentor.

All schools remain hopeful that their summer activity programmes will still be able to go ahead later this year and are using this time to prepare for these exciting events.
