Recycling Textiles

We now have a recycling bank outside the parent’s gate.

This is for everyone to use to put in their unwanted new and used items such as clothes, shoes, belts, handbags, soft toys, linen etc.  All items must be dry and clean.

This is to promote textile recycling and help in reducing landfill waste.

Donations will be collected on a regular basis and the college will receive funds at 40p per kilo.

This is a great opportunity to have a clear out, recycle to help the environment and raise funds for Oak Grove College.

Thank you for your support.

Wellbeing Award – Parent/Carer Survey

As part of our commitment to promote positive emotional wellbeing and mental health across the whole school community,
Oak Grove College is going to be working towards achieving the NCB (National’s Children’s Bureau) Wellbeing Award for Schools.

Evidence shows us that wellbeing is of central importance to learning and attainment and the award advocates the use of ‘whole school approach’ where all aspects of the school experience are harnessed to promote the emotional wellbeing and mental health of students and staff.

We are looking at canvassing parent/carers views to support us in evaluating our current provision. Your views are important in helping us understand what we are doing well and how we can improve on this.

The link below will take you to a short survey – it should only take a couple of minutes. Please respond by the 3rd December.
