Oldfield Brow Primary School

Only The Very Best Will Do

Welcome To Our School

On behalf of the pupils, staff and Governing Body, it is our pleasure to welcome you to Oldfield Brow Primary School.

Oldfield Brow is truly at the heart of the community - it has been on a significant and exciting journey and school improvement is rapid. Learning is at the heart of all that we do as we strive to develop the children as active, motivated, resilient learners who thrive in a caring, supportive environment. 

We are also creating and developing a curriculum that not only promotes high standards and challenges children’s thinking but a curriculum that also excites and motivates our children and teaching staff. We are striving to develop children’s knowledge and skill across all areas of the curriculum so that we nurture and grow well-rounded children who could be the mathematicians, scientists, writers or historians of the future. We want to inspire our children so that as they grow into young adults they have belief in themselves and belief in their talents too.

We also foster and nurture a community who care for one another, where kindness is promoted and respect is strong. It is our aim that we develop the whole child so that they grow to be responsible, caring individuals who achieve their potential.

Oldfield Brow is a thriving school community with committed staff, supportive parents and wonderful children.

We very much look forward to welcoming new children and families and prospective parents are actively encouraged to contact the school office and arrange to receive a link to our welcome video. This will provide you with the opportunity to see school in action.

Dear Parents,

Please find a letter within our downloads page written on behalf of Jackson Cunningham's family. Our thoughts and prayers are shared with Jackson and all those close to him.
Please make sure that your children are always supervised when playing out after school. Make sure that they are aware of stranger danger and keep them always in your view. Thank you.

May I extend a big thank you to the parents, pupils and staff in ensuring that the return to school for everyone has been as successful as it has been. Parents and pupils are quickly adapting to the new expectations and pick-ups and drop-offs have gone well.

Information regarding what we will offer pupils in the case of a bubble closing or a child having to isolate for two weeks has been posted on the downloads section of the website.

We have also uploaded a range of videos and presentations instead of our usual Curriculum Evenings. We hope that you find them interesting, informative and can use them to gain an insight into classroom life and how you can support your child with their learning.

Please click on 'downloads' then 'curriculum' and then select the files that are relevant to you and your child. There are presentations and videos for all age groups within the school.

Thank you for all your feedback and we will constantly review our progress and look for ways in which we can improve what we do.

A brand new newsletter has been sent home to parents and a copy of it 'October Newsletter' is also available within our downloads section.

Please be aware that there are particular symptoms regarding Covid and clear guidance for your child -and your family - if any of these are shown. The updated Covid Absence Guide and information on how to OBTAIN TESTING is available on our downloads section to help you further.


For new parents wishing to join the school, a video showing a 'virtual tour' of the school is now available from the office. Please email us if you would like to receive the link. Unfortunately, we are unable to show parents around the school personally due to Covid restrictions.

If you need to contact the school, please use the office@oldfield-brow.com email address.

The school's Behaviour Policy has been amended and updated to state that anyone refusing to follow appropriate Health and Safety expectations will now have breached our school's Behaviour Policy. A risk assessment in regard to returning to school in September has been posted within our 'Downloads' section and was updated on 17th September.

Thank you for your ongoing support. Keep checking back for further updates.
Keep safe, keep well and see you soon!
