To All Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of everyone at Oldfield Brow, can I thank everyone for their extraordinary efforts within an extraordinary year. To all the parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters who have helped support your child over the past months, your support has been much appreciated.

As we now close for the summer, may I wish you all a very happy summer. Some may be travelling away on holiday and some may not, but to you all, we would like to wish you all a good break.

From this point onwards, your child's class email will not be monitored until September, but if you need to contact the school please email us on office@oldfield-brow.com and we will reply as soon as possible.

Take care of one another and see you all in September.
