Choir at St Lukes

Since the start of the year choir have been working hard every Friday morning before school with Mrs Hudson. Yesterday we visited St Lukes for a very special performance. Our Oxford Grove choir wowed the audience with beautiful singing of a range of Christmas songs and carols and everyone was swaying along with a smile on their face. This is what Christmas is all about!

Autumn 2 Smiley Reward – Pantomime

What an amazing afternoon we have had at Oxford Grove! We have enjoyed a performance of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ as our annual pantomime. 

Well done to all of the children who earned enough smileys to fill the back of their first smiley card and attend the pantomime.

We are all now working towards our next smiley reward in February – keep it up, everybody!

High praise from the Director of Bolton Council

Hello Nadine,

I would like to offer my congratulations to you, your leadership team and your staff, as well as to the pupils and governors at Oxford Grove, on your brilliant Ofsted Inspection Report.

It is really encouraging to see the report acknowledging the quality of leadership and the drive and dedication of the whole staff team. Your focus on continuing improvement and helping your children to maximise their potential clearly shines through. It’s always nice to read that pupils have told inspectors that they have fun whilst learning and have great pride in their school. It’s really obvious that focused enthusiasm is a feature of the whole school! I always like to see Ofsted acknowledge how well our schools perform in terms of safeguarding and it’s great to see this element of what you do described in such glowing terms.

I would like to offer my congratulations, both personally and on behalf of the Council, to you and everyone at Oxford Grove.

Well done and thank you.

Harvest Assembly

Key Stage 2 have enjoyed a Harvest assembly led by Mrs Bain and Year 5B. We talked about and celebrated the Harvest gifts brought in by our families.

5B performed a play to teach us the importance of sharing, being thankful and showing tolerance for other religions and beliefs. We talked about how lucky we are to have enough food to eat, and gave thanks for all the choices that we have.
