Parent Workshop Thursday 13.12.18

We invite all parents and carers of Academy pupils to the first in a series of Parents’ Information Sessions.

The topic of the first session will be Online Gaming and will be hosted by Oakfield parent, author and journalist Keith Stuart, who until recently held the position of Gaming Editor for The Guardian newspaper and wrote the bestselling novel ‘A Boy Made of Blocks’.

The session will take place on Thursday 13th December 2018 and will run twice – 2-3pm and 6-7pm.

Venue: Enrichment Centre.  Refreshments will be available.


Are you, like thousands of other parents across the country, concerned about the impact that the time spent playing online games (such as Fortnite) is having on your child’s physical, social and emotional health?

Do you think they are impacting on family life and academic success at school?

This session will seek to address some of the issues and challenge the myths around online multi-player games. There will be a short presentation followed by plenty of time for questions.

If you think you would like to attend either of the two sessions, please contact the Academy Reception to reserve a place.

We look forward to seeing you there.
