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 and Guardians,

As you have already been made aware, Trafford had seen a great increase in Covid infections over recent weeks. Although the situation within the borough is now much better than it was, things are far from perfect.

Latest advice from Trafford Public Health is that, annecdotally, many positive cases cases being seen at the moment are often associated with headaches, tiredness, sore throat as well as the more traditional symptoms. The advice we have been given is to encourage any affected child to seek a PCR as part of a parent's 'extra vigilance' if they show any of these newly associated symptoms.

However, things within our school much better also and our temporary 'stop' on much anticipated events has now been lifted. Parents were informed of this by letter during the week beginning 1st November.

We ask that parents continue to follow the additional guidance below:

• If someone else in your household has covid, your child can continue to attend school if they complete a daily Lateral Flow Test (LFD) and it is negative
• If the LFD is positive, the child must stop attending school and get a PCR test (booked on-line)
• If your child develops any covid symptoms, they should get a PCR test and not attend school
• Any visitors inside school will once again be expected to wear a face covering unless exempt from doing so
• We ask that parents when dropping off or picking up children also wear a face covering
• Staff are asked to once again wear face masks whilst in school

However, Trafford have identified exemptions to the guidance regarding daily lateral flow tests which in our setting include:

• Children in Key Stage 1
• Children aged 5 and under
• Any child, aged between 5 – 16, who has tested positive for COVID-19 via a PCR test within the past 90 days (unless new symptoms develop).

This guidance was reviewed on Monday 15th November and concluded that the previous guidance to remain in place. This position will be updated once more following a meeting of Public Health on 29th November.

Please see the most recent update on the school's Covid Risk Assessment which is now available on the school's website under 'What's On' and is entitled 'Risk Assessment 27.7.21'.
Information on how we will use the funds given to us to 'Bridge the COVID Gap' has been placed within to our 'downloads' section.
Due to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, the school's calendar has been amended so that the final day of the year will now be on Wednesday 27th July and NOT Thursday 28th July as was originally stated.

For new parents wishing to join the school, pease email us if you would like to make a visit to the school personally.

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

Thank you for your ongoing support. Keep checking back for further updates.

Keep safe, keep well and see you soon!
