Acting Head of School Report

We have enjoyed a really positive week at Oakwood!


The children have continued to show positive behaviour in and around the school, which has led to some excellent work being produced in all year groups!


Our Nursery had more special visitors this week, thanks to our friends at the Eastbourne Gardens Care Home. This time a range of super heroes visited (Super Reader, Super Recycling and Super Fitness) and worked with our children during the morning! It is a fantastic partnership that Mrs Stiles (our Nursery Manager) has developed, and we look forward to seeing it grow even more in the future.


It has also been a special week for Year 1, with their trip to Lewes Castle that links to the current History unit. I am delighted to report that all of the children behaved in an exemplary manner, representing Oakwood in the best possible way. They also had a fantastic time and managed to wear out some of adults as there were a lot of steps to climb! I suspect all our Year 1 children slept very well on Thursday night - I know the adults that went did! 


All around the school I have seen some great work - from children who have worked really hard to improve their handwriting and presentation, to wonderful art work. Year 6 have produced some very moving pieces of writing that demonstrates real thought and emotion. It has been wonderful to see so many proud children showing me their fantastic work.


Today's celebration assembly saw our 'Stars of the Week' receive their awards, and the winners are named on this week's bulletin. Nightingale class again won the Golden Lunchbox due the their outstanding lunchtime behaviour, and Park's class have taken an early lead in this term's attendance challenge. Well done to Sebastian West (number 233) who won the individual attendance raffle.


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and look forward to seeing your children back for more fantastic learning next week!


With my best wishes
