Welcome to Oakwood Primary School

Oakwood Primary School aspires to create a safe environment where children are able to achieve their full potential in all aspects of their learning and development. We will achieve this by creating a learning environment which is stimulating and challenging, inclusive and enjoyable.

Oakwood aims to promote a pride in a sense of belonging to our school and local community.

Reopening Information

Please find above a letter from Mr Welsh regarding the reopening of schools in September 2020.

Additional Information and a Risk Assessment is also included.

Many Thanks

Dear Parents and Carers,

Sadly, we can’t have our normal harvest festival this year but we are still having a collection and celebration.
Each class will put out a short video on Class Dojo of a song, poem or story on the morning of Wednesday 21st October.

Due to social distancing we will not be able to distribute parcels in the normal way but we would ask if you could make a food donation to our food bank which has been supporting our community since Lockdown.

Suitable donations are:
Canned fruit
Canned meat
Canned beans
Canned fish
Canned vegetables
Canned Soup
Canned Meatballs    Pasta Sauces
Long-life Milk
Part baked bread/rolls
Long-life Fruit Juice

Any support with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much

Dave Hill
