Oxford Road Community School

 Dear Parents,

We are looking forward to the children returning to school from Wednesday 2nd September. It has been a long time since we have seen many of you and we are excited at welcoming you back. The past few months have been exceptional with us all having to live in unusual times.

I am sure your child/ren are looking forward to being back in school however I am also aware that there could be some anxiety for some, particularly those who have not been in school since March. The school will be running slightly differently to normal however all the staff are committed to ensuring that all children feel settled and safe on their return and that they are motivated and excited to be returning to learning in school.

In order to ensure a safe return, we have planned for different year groups to return on different days. 

Please see the table below to see which day your child/ren will be returning

Staggered return

New Reception children in for one day only. Return Monday 7th Sept

Friday 4th September

 Please note - Nursery children will not be returning at the beginning of term. Please see your individual letters to see the start date for your child.

We will also need to introduce staggered drop off and pick up times for each year group to avoid the risk of having too many children and parents in the playground at one time. Please see the table below to see when and where your child/ren need to be dropped off and picked up.
