Newsletter 1 Sept 18

It has been lovely in just over a week to meet so many of you and your children at Oakridge.

Dear Parents,

It has been lovely in just over a week to meet so many of you and your children at Oakridge. The school is located in such a beautiful and peaceful environment where the children and staff work so well together creating a wonderful school.

I will endeavour to maintain a close contact with you. In these initial weeks I aim to be at Oakridge either before or after school, so please continue to come and speak to me about all things connected with the school. If I’m not at school you can also contact me by contacting the school office or e-mailing on The teachers equally would wish to maintain close links. Before school in the morning is more difficult as they are getting their class ready. After school is preferable. You can always contact the office where your query will be passed onto the teacher who will get back to you.

At this early part of the year a list of some of the key dates including Christmas activities have been sent home in book bags. Copies are available from the school office, please ask Carolyn if you would like one. Dates will also be available on the school website.


Staffing Update

At the end of September we say good bye to Miss Hawkins.  She has been at Oakridge for nearly eleven years and will be missed. We wish her all the very best with her plans for the future.

Mrs Sanders and Mrs Chapman will provide cover in Class 2 but we are still looking for lunchtime cover on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday  during term time.  If you know anyone who would be interested, please ask them to get in touch with the school office for more information.



The OSA will be holding their AGM on Monday 1st October—7.30pm at The Butcher’s Arms.  All parents welcome.  A separate slip giving further information has been sent out, but if you require another copy please see Carolyn in the school office.



It is lovely to see the children each morning dressed smartly ready to begin their learning at Oakridge.  I would however ask if children would refrain from wearing brightly coloured trainers on days when they are not doing PE.  Black shoes or trainers would be preferable.
