If you receive a letter about registering for a Free School Meal, please take the time to read it and if you think that you may have even a small chance of being entitled, complete the accompanying form.  We receive extra funding for every child who is entitled to a Free School Meal not just for the year but for the whole time that your child attends Oxford Gardens.  This money is vitally important to the school at a time when funding for schools are being cut.

Any applications will be treated in the strictest confidence but if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact any member of the Office Team.

Thanks

We are looking forward to working with you to ensure that your child has a fabulous, successful year ahead.

Please remember that if your child is unable to come to school for any reason, you need to call the office before 9:30.  If you child has been absent, we will need a note to explain the reason why when your child returns to school.

Your child needs to be in full school uniform (including black school shoes), please ask us for an order form so that you can order your uniform from Stitch Design. Details of compulsory items are below.

If you want someone new to collect your child at the end of the school day, please ensure that their details have been given to a member of the office team so that we can amend your child’s record, this avoids any confusion or upset at the end of the day.

If you believe that your child is entitled to receive a free school meal please come and talk us.

We have a requirement to report certain information to the Department of Education each year. This year they have asked us to collect some additional information.  A letter has been sent home with your child and we would ask that you complete and return it as soon as possible but at the latest by Monday 26th September.

Finally, please see below information regarding the Seasonal Nasal Flu Vaccine Programme.

We welcome back the Rag Bag Scheme to Oxford Gardens. This scheme is a simple and effective way of recycling unwanted clothes and shoes. All you have to do is put your unwanted items (clothes, duvet covers, pillow cases, paired shoes, handbags) into a bag and place in Ragbag recycle bin (the sheltered area under the creative arts block) Bags are available if needed.
The scheme increases awareness about textile recycling and by increasing recycling rates we can help the environment by ensuring less material goes to landfill as well as earning money for our school.
If you have any questions please see Robert

An update from our Office Team

Please ensure that you inform your child’s class teacher if someone different is collecting them after school and let your child know if they are attending playcentre that day,  we are getting increasing numbers of phone calls at the end of the day asking the office to deliver these messages to individual children.

If you receive a text message from us on  44 20 3745 4286,  please save it to your phone as “Oxford Gardens Texts” so that in future you will know where the text is coming from.

If you think you are eligible for free school meals (even if you are now receiving the Universal Free School Meal for your child), please come to the office to complete a simple form, this enables the school to claim extra money for your child which is used directly for the benefit of the children.

Many Thanks for your support with these matters

Best Wishes

A message from Dee Edwards, our Senior Admin Officer:

Please can you make sure your child/children know who is collecting them after school as we are having a large volume of calls just before the end of the school day. We understand that circumstances change and appreciate the calls being late and will endeavour to make sure the message gets to the class teacher on time. Also there are children being collected late from school and would like to remind parents that nursery children are to be collected at 3.20 pm and all other classes are to be collected at 3.30pm.
 
Next week we will be sending out data sheets to all parents/carers and would appreciate it if you look through and amend and send back to the school office POD. For those whose details are all correct please also sign and send back . Please note that this is very important as we may need to contact you in an emergency!
Many thanks – Dee

A special message from Dee and Becky

Dear Parents/Carers

As you all know Eileen Franklin (Senior Administrative Officer) is a prominent and valued member of our school community. After 39 years with the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, and 12 of those years spent here at Oxford Gardens Primary School, Eileen is retiring.

In addition to this, Freda Pett, our committed Senior Midday Meals Supervisor, is also retiring after 25 years at Oxford Gardens Primary School.

The school and staff will be ensuring they leave with a big THANK YOU but we are aware that some parents might like to also mark the occasion. If you would like to contribute towards a retirement gift Becky Fuschillo will have a collection box in the POD office.

Many thanks for your continued support

School Uniform Update

When you order School Uniform from  Stitch Design you have to pay a delivery charge of £2.95. This charge is the same no matter the quantity or type of garment that you are ordering. It therefore makes sense that you ask around to see if other families are placing orders so that these can be combined. This will result in savings for everyone. The order form can be found under the following headings:

Parents – then click on – School Uniform

Monday 18th November 2013

Reminders from the Office Team (Dee, Eileen and Becky)

  • Please make sure all school uniform is clearly labelled with your child’s name as there have been many items of uniform in the Lost Property Boxes which can not be returned to their owners.

  • If your child comes into school after 9.05 please come to the office and let us know as the Register will have been closed.

  • All dinner money needs to be paid on Monday mornings in advance.

  • If your child is changing their meal pattern then please let the Office know.

A special message from Amy Teichman: AIP Quality and Nutrition Manager

Once again, we will be participating in the Food For Life Partnership’s National Roast Dinner Day. This special day sees schools across the nation serving traditional roast dinners. We will be showcasing our Red Tractor certified British Beef and local, organic vegetables such as cauliflower and broccoli as well as our local British autumnal fruits such as pears and apples. In order to participate with the national day, we will be swapping our traditional Thursday Roast Dinner for Wednesday. I’ve attached the menu for your information. (Please click the link below).
