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,

Thank you for your great understanding and support that we have received in school since this Lockdown began. Your messages of appreciation and encouragement have made a vast difference to us all in school. Closing the school is something that no one wanted to do.

School will be reopening to all pupils on 8th March. Details on this were sent home last week and this information is also available on the school's website within the downloads 'What's On' section as well as a copy of the latest Risk Assessment. As with the country as whole, we want to take a 'cautious approach' to this stepping down from Lockdown to maintain the safety of our entire school family whilst being aware of the need to move towards a normal provision for all. Further information was also sent home on 5.3.21 and can also be found within the What's On section and called 'Welcome Back in March'.

The latest information on many other matters is available through our 'February Newsletter' and can be found within our 'What's On' downloads section on this website.

We have posted information regarding Covid Testing for Staff and information about February half-term within our downloads section - "29th January Update for Parents". Further details on Home Learning have been updated and can be found within our downloads section - 'Newsletters' then 'Jan 2021 Parents' Guidance Home Learning'.

If you are a Key Worker, please contact the school if you have not done so already to register your interest for a place. We ask parents to look very carefully at all other options before contacting the school and children are not expected to attend each day unless there is an absolute need to do so. Places are allocated on a weekly basis. We ask any new requests or amendments to be made to the school by Wednesday of each week. Those for w/b 1st March must be received by Wednesday 24th February. If you have not done so already, please send your proof of eligibility and details of your request for a place to: covid19@oldfield-brow.com

We will be in touch as soon as is possible - please check your emails and the web site for further information. Take care.
