Hope that everyone has had a good week. Please remember to check the website regularly, as information on the pages changes, with documents, guidance and policies being updated. Please ask if you are looking for something, but unsure as to where you will find it.

Please see below the Autumn Menu from Caterlink.We have also re-posted the important information about Parent Consultations, please make sure that you have signed up for your appointment.

OXFORD GARDENS Caterlink Autumn 2017 SA Menu Dual Gold 22.10.2017 –


On Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th November there will be parent consultations for all of our classes (Nursery to year 6).  This will give you an opportunity to talk to your child’s teacher(s) about how they have settled into the year, their progress, targets, next steps and how you can support your child with their learning at home.   The consultation slots are 10 minutes per pupil which is a short amount of time so please make sure you arrive on time to avoid them running over.  If you feel you need more time than this then please make an extended appointment directly with the teacher.

If you are unable to meet your child’s/children’s teacher  during this week or if meeting after school is difficult for you then please speak to the class teacher and they will arrange another time to meet with you that is mutually convenient.

How to sign up for an appointment:

Nursery, Reception & Year 2 –  on the sign-up sheets on the notice boards outside the classroom doors.  The sheets will go up this Thursday 2nd November at 8.45am.

Year 1 – on the sign-up sheets which will be located on the Yr 1 notice boards by the entrance door in the car park.  The sheets will go up this Thursday 2nd November at 8.45am.

On these tables will be the sign-up lists for the consultations.

If you are unable to come on any of these days or times please either let your child know what days/times are convenient and they can sign up for you or write a note to the teachers with preferred times and days and they will arrange this for you.

If your child is in Years 4-6 then you will need to sign up to see their Maths, Writing and Reading teachers – please make sure you are aware of who these are.

The importance of meeting with your child’s teacher and being aware of their targets does play a crucial part in the development and progress of their learning so please make every effort to take the time to meet with your child’s/children’s class teacher.
