Happy Easter to all of our families!
We hope you enjoy all of the cards the children have made, and have a lovely Easter break.
Dear Parents and Carers
In our School Council meetings this year the issue of children’s safety on the roads outside of school at the beginning and end of the school day has been brought up a number of times by children right across the school.
Sadly there have been a number of incidents of parents parking inappropriately as well as setting off without enough care and attention when we are all trying to get into or out of school safely.
We know that the vast majority of you park and drive with great care and thought for our safety but this is not the case with everybody and we as a school council are convinced this is putting us at risk of injury or even worse. We would like to change this situation before a disaster happens.
As a result of our discussions and conversations with Miss Harvey we have developed some ideas to try to help improve the situation and we would like to test which of them you would support should they be implemented.
We should be most grateful if you would complete the questionnaire below. We will use your responses to make a plan of action which we will share with you before implementing from the start of the summer term.
With our thanks

Last month, many of our children entered the Bolton Schools ICT Online Safety Competition.
Schools from all over Bolton entered, but there could only be three winners – and Oxford Grove was one of them!
Well done to Saarah in Year 6 for her amazing online safety story! Her class will be enjoying a STEM engineering workshop with Mrs Temel next half term.
Year 1 and Year 2 were incredibly lucky today to work with an amazing illustrator – Liz Million. She showed us some of the amazing books that she has illustrated.
She talked to us about how to get ideas for drawing, and how to use similar shapes and small details to create fantastic pictures.
We are so proud of all of our amazing Times Tables winners!
Well done to everybody who worked so hard on learning and improving their times tables facts to enter this competition.
Keep practising hard – you’re always a winner if you know your times tables by heart!
The whole school enjoyed the Zulu dancers for our Smiley Reward!
We all watched two different performances, and took part in dance and music workshops.
Keep working hard to earn those smileys, everybody!
We have been very lucky to receive a letter from the Secretary of State for Education and Minister of State for School Standards. This is to congratulate us on our amazing progress, which puts us in the top 3% of schools nationally.
Well done to our amazing team at Oxford Grove!
Today, we have taken part in assemblies with the NSPCC. We have learned about how to speak out about things that are upsetting or worrying us so we can stay safe. We talked about our rights and why it is important to keep telling an adult until something changes.
Year 5 and Year 6 have also had workshops to help them understand how to keep themselves safe.
The whole school enjoyed some amazing workshops with A Life this week!
We learned lots about healthy living, include how to eat healthily, how much water to drink, how to eat less sugar and why smoking is bad for us.
We all also took part in fitness workshops and learned how to keep our bodies healthy with exercise.
