Newsletter 1

Welcome back for the new school year.

Happy New School Year.

Welcome back to everyone. We hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday and that like us you are excited about the new school year ahead. We would like to extend a very special welcome to the new reception children Koa, Agnes and Tommy and also to Edi (Y3), Chloe (Y3), Charlie(Y1) and Sam (Y1).


Bisley After School Club

As a reminder Bisley After School Club is available for use by our pupils on a daily basis after school.  For further information contact Carolyn in the office.


Universal Free School Meals – hot dinners arrive at Oakridge.

There have been an encouraging number of pupils in both classes taking up the offer of a hot school meal this week. It has been really great to see this happening at Oakridge and feedback from pupils has been really positive.

In order to ensure that our ordering system continues to run smoothly we request that you discuss the menu choices with your child.


Governor elections.

A letter regarding governor vacancies at our school has been sent out in pupils' book bags. With the introduction of the newly formed Federated Governing Body starting this September it is indeed a really exciting time to become more involved with the school. If you have any further questions about this, please do not hesitate to speak with myself.


Dire Streets.

The Oakridge School Association have organised what promises to be a superb fundraising event for the evening of Saturday 27th September. More information about the evening can be found in the school office. Tickets can be purchased from the school office and village shop.
