Learning While at Home

The ‘Learning at Home’ page of the school website supports girls if they are completing their learning at home. We are operating a 'Blended Curriculum' for Year 7 to 11. This means that pupils learning at home are completing the same curriculum, via Microsoft Teams, as the girls in school. Pupils can access Microsoft Teams through their Office 365 login. This video guide and this user guide explains how pupils can access Microsoft Teams, their school e-mail and Office 365 to complete their learning at home.

Please contact Mrs Rowland for any additional support with Microsoft Teams at erowland@fairfieldhighschool.co.uk.

Pupils learning at home are expected to follow their school timetable each day and will find their lessons set through the ‘assignment’ function in Microsoft Teams. Pupils will be given instructions as to what work needs to be submitted to their teacher and can contact teachers through the ‘chat’ function of Microsoft Teams for extra help.

Fairfield High School for Girls understands the challenges facing girls and families and we are here to help you when needed. Please contact school by phone (0161 370 1488)  or e-mail (admin@fairfieldhighschool.co.uk) to arrange a conversation with Form Tutors or Heads of Year for further support.

Tameside Food Voucher


As you may have seen last weekend Executive Leader, Cllr Brenda Warrington, announced that no child in Tameside on free school meals would go hungry over the half-term break. A voucher to the value of £15 from either Tesco or Asda is available for each eligible child. Parents or carers of children on benefits-related free school meals can go to the Tameside Council website and complete an online form. Further information and how to apply can be found here at www.tameside.gov.uk/voucher.

If parents or carers are unsure about filling in the form or don’t have access to the internet they can contact the Early Help Access Team on 0161 342 4260 to talk through the process. Likewise, if families need any other urgent support they can contact the team on the same number. There is also information on wider help available for children and families on our website at www.tameside.gov.uk/earlyhelp/neighbourhoods.

Tameside Council have already received applications from nearly 4000 families but parents can apply until 8 November 2020. Further to this, applications are to go directly to the links above and not through schools.

Lastly it is important to say how grateful we all are to the many local businesses in Tameside which have offered their support to struggling families to provide free meals to children this half-term.
