Friends of Oakwood

 

At Oakwood School we believe that parent/carer involvement should be an active, enjoyable experience and that your child should gain access to a wide range of educational and social experiences planned to allow maximum independence. We provide a happy, secure, stimulating, caring environment and play an active role in our local community.

 

 

The main PSA contacts are: Mrs Kay Mills, Mrs Janice Smith, Mrs Vicki Parry, Mrs Sara Meredith and Mrs Debbie Newey.

 

We can be contacted through the school office.

Bhangra Dancing

We are looking into funding Bhangra dance sessions for all of the children in school. We are in the process of getting quotes.  This is so much fun and a great way to exercise.
