During the winter months Senior leadership Team would like to remind all pupils to take care crossing roads and to be extra aware, particularly when attending after school clubs, that it is now getting darker earlier.
If the Academy is closing, due to severe weather then a notice will be posted on the website by 7.30am. A text message will also be sent out. If there has been no notice posted on the website by 7.30am on the morning of severe weather and you have received no text message from us, then please assume the school is open as usual.
May we take this opportunity to remind all pupils to leave via the silver gate at the end of the Year 6 corridor and not via the front door after 15.10pm, as this is when the red gates are locked. We would also like to remind pupils not to walk through the car park – at any time.
Year 5 pupil Onni, took part in a Somerset Schools Chess Tournament in Blagdon, winning 3 of his 6 games in a very tough ‘Under 14’ section. He came joint 10th out of 24, which placed him 5th in his age group (the Under 10s.) He was representing Oakfield, as it was an event for school pupils across Somerset, Bristol and Bath.
Sally Somers, (chess tutor at St John’s First School) said ‘It’s a very high standard, competitive entire day of long chess games and he (Onni) did very well.’
