Saturday was a day never to forget for the pupils from Oakgrove School as they took part in the curtain raiser match before the clash for the Calcutta cup between England and Scotland. Oakgrove Year 7 rugby team wore their bespoke blue, green and white Canterbury jerseys as designed by the pupils with pride on Saturday as they played against Oasis academy from Hampshire on the hollowed Twickenham turf before heading back into the changing rooms and rubbing shoulder with many past and present players.

We are coming into the season of winter illness. If your child is ill and you believe this to be the winter vomiting bug it is advisable to allow a period of 48 hours free of symptoms before returning to school.

To minimise the risk of spreading any ‘bugs’ around the school please continue to encourage your children to follow good hand hygiene procedures i.e. hand washing etc.
Finally, continue to advise the school via the absence line, on a daily basis, of your child’s condition until their return.

I am fortunate enough to be leading an outstanding school, with some of the most gifted and hardworking staff any Headteacher could ask for. Parents and carers can look forward to their son or daughter being taught by some of the most well qualified teachers in any school, and supported by associate staff that make every effort for students to enjoy their time at Oakgrove, whether it is in the classroom, on the sports field, during after-school clubs or on the many trips organised.
However, this does not mean that we are complacent as a school. With a rapidly changing educational landscape it is essential that we maximise every opportunity for students to succeed and celebrate success. In terms of moving the school forward, my Senior Leadership Team and I will initially be focusing on two key areas:
Further updates and announcements will be made regularly, including blogs, video clips and website improvements.
