Bookbags & Uniform

It's good practice to get into the habit of bringing your child's book bag to school  every day.  Could all items of school uniform be labelled please-this is to try and stop cardigans/jumpers etc being mixed up or sent home with the wrong child.

PE Day

PE is on a Friday every week. Children should come to school in their PE kits. Please ensure correct PE kits are worn (black joggers, white polo shirt or school PE top, school hoodie or school jumper and trainers or pumps-preferably with velcro, unless children are able to tie their own shoelaces already). School uniforms do not need to be brought in to school on a Friday and book bags can be left at home too.

Forest School

The start date for this will be confirmed in a PING.  Could all children bring in a pair of wellies to leave in school for this and for outdoor play. Please ensure that wellies are clearly labelled with child’s name.


Children do not need to bring their own snacks to school. Fruit is provided each day along with water.  If your child would like milk, then a small charge will be added to your parent pay account. Information is sent out before each half term with a cut-off date for payment. 



The Oaky Way – Staying Connected

At Oakwood, we very much have an open door policy where we welcome open communication. Our staff welcome you and your children at the door every day and again at hometime.  If parents/carers need a quick chat or need to pass on any information, then please feel free to do so. We will always use our boards outside each classroom to share information with you. 

If you require a more lengthy conversation, then please email or ring for an appointment with the class teacher, as you can appreciate that teachers need to be back in class to maximise learning time. 

For safeguarding and welfare concerns, please continue to use Option 4 on the school phone line and ask to speak to Mrs Frank

Members of the senior leadership team will be visible at drop off and pick up times at the gate. If you require a meeting with a senior leader, then plase contact the office to arrange an appointment.
