8th March Phased Return

Up until the 8th March we continue to be open to students from families of critical workers and those who we have deemed as vulnerable. From the 8th March we will have a phased return of students to enable testing on their return. 

From Monday 8th March we will provide for children of key workers in their normal classes. We will have discussions with families of students who have been in college who are not key workers about their return. Ideally it should be with their class during the week as this will enable the testing programme to go smoothly.

The timetable for this is

Year group/ area of college

Day for first Covid test (families will need to bring students in for this 10am -1pm)

Headteacher’s welcome

It is a privilege to be Headteacher here at Oak Grove College working with our students and leading a team of excellent staff, who are dedicated to providing the best in terms of education, care and support for all. We seek to develop the ‘whole’ individual within an environment where the self esteem of our students is nurtured so that they can develop and flourish. We work with a range of partnership agencies to ensure the best for everyone.

Oak Grove College is part of a wider federation of special schools including Cornfield School, Heronsdale Primary School and Palatine Primary School who, through shared governance arrangements, work to ensure the most effective use of resources so that the best possible service is provided for all. We believe in a partnership approach to all aspects of College life and we welcome and encourage full involvement from families, outside agencies and research and training providers.

Oak Grove College seeks to be at the heart of the community we serve and we wish the experience of every student here to be one where: “Everyone matters, every day counts”.
