Support at Christmas & Looking Ahead

Dear Parents/Carers,

We would just like to take the opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas time and thank you all for your continued support through what has been a busy and successful Autumn term.

Thank you for continuing to send your child in to school. Whole school attendance continues to be exceptionally strong and we are grateful that parents have demonstrated a commitment to ensuring that our Oaklands children continue to get their education; to learn, have fun and progress together. Please can I ask you to continue to promote strong attendance in the new year.
