From September 2019 the following plans will be in place for the leadership of Special Needs work.

Dear Parents

SENDCO arrangements

From September 2019 the following plans will be in place for the leadership of Special Needs work. Mrs Morley who currently supports a child at Bisley with special needs will take the lead as SENDCO at Oakridge as well as leading all EHCP work. Mr Wright will take the lead as SENDCO at Bisley. Between now and the end of term Mrs Gray will continue to work as SENDCO across both schools but will be working closely with Mrs Morley and Mr Wright as they prepare to take on this role.


Despite a rather wet sports week we were able to complete archery and football on the last morning. It was good that we were able to rearrange sports day on Wednesday. It was lovely to see the children so involved in the events. Thank you for coming to see your children and encouraging them to take part.

Public speaking

Earlier this term Mr Breeze from Thomas Keble School visited the children from class 2 in order to hear some of the children perform their prepared talks. There was a diverse range of talks which proved highly engaging to those of us who heard them. Following these talks Amelia C and Layla were selected to attend the finals at Thomas Keble School.  They performed exceptionally well and spoke with great confidence in front of an audience of adults, children and judges from Thomas Keble School. The final decision of the judges placed Amelia in third place.

Cathedral service for Y6 leavers

All Y6’s from Bisley and Oakridge Schools attended the Leavers’ service in Gloucester Cathedral. It was good for the children to understand that they are part of a much wider community and take strength and confidence that they are moving onto new schools alongside Y6’s from other schools within Gloucestershire.

Copsegrove Wood visit

All Y5 and Y6 children from Miserden, Oakridge and Bisley took part in a team building event. The children from the three schools mixed very well with each other. Those attending the camp later this term also had an opportunity to get to know the children and adults from other schools who will be working with them then. Despite the wet start it was a great day.


Currently the children can wear either green, white or gold polo shirts along with a green sweat shirt or cardigan. Please support us by ensuring children refrain from wear other tops including hoddies of different colours.
