Dear Parents and Carers

It has been another busy week at West Oaks and a warm one too!
Pupils and staff have coped well with the heat, and I have been impressed by the range of activities, both indoor and outdoor that have been arranged to safely educate our young people.

Several open evenings for parent/carers of prospective and new starters have taken place this week as we move to educate 440 pupils across our three sites in September 2023. The events were an enormous success, and we now have many more excited pupils and their families ready to join us in the new academic year.

As we plan for September, class groups and annual reports will be shared with you ahead of the parents evening week commencing July 3rd and we look forward to catching up with you then and during the sports days that will be taking place across our three sites next week.

At a recent governing body meeting, we decided, despite food and catering service costs rising, we will look to reduce our meal charges for a pupil meal to £2.50 daily instead of £2.70 and not pass on the increasing costs. This action is in recognition of the financial pressures’ families are under and the change will start 6th September when pupils return to school after the summer break.

Also, please put a note in your diary of the return of our annual community event and family fun day which will take place at Headingley Learning on Saturday September 23rd from 10am-2pm. It will be a good opportunity to introduce our Headingley site to everyone and in the future, we plan to rota events, so we hold the fun day at a different campus every year in either July or September.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Best wishes
Andrew
