Shropshire Council, as admission authority for community and controlled schools in Shropshire, is conducting a consultation exercise on School Admission Arrangements for 2021/22. The Council is simultaneously co-ordinating a consultation exercise for own admission authority school, such as academies, whose governing bodies are responsible for setting their admission arrangements and who wish to make changes to those arrangements. Shropshire Council wish to notify all parents/carers that the consultation will begin on 11th December 2019 and continue for more than 6 weeks until 24th January 2020.
if parents wish to make comments on any proposed changes by Friday 24th January 2020, they should email email@example.com or write to: School Admissions, Shropshire Council, Shirehall, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury, SY2 6ND
11 Oak are holding a Festive Bake Sale on Wednesday 18th December during morning break.
Year 11 photos are now ready to be collected from the school office. Please can we ask pupils to only collect during break & lunchtime, due to exams.
In response to feedback from pupils and parents, we are altering the way in which we deliver Christmas lunch.
- Christmas lunch will be on Wednesday 18th December 2019
- Pupils, who wish to, will be able to purchase a roast turkey dinner or vegetarian option (£2.45)
- Pupils will be able to use their pre-paid dinner ticket or free school meal entitlement
- there will be no need to pre-order
- those who do not wish to have Christmas lunch should bring a packed lunch as we just don’t have capacity to offer an alternative menu on this day
The kitchen staff will be fully deployed in providing a festive fare therefore we are proposing to have an alternative break time provision in the form of a charity bake sale.
We hope that this gives pupils the opportunity to participate in the festive activities, if they wish. We will, however, review this arrangement in January, through pupil feedback, to see if it has delivered the outcome we hope for.
On Friday 20th December 2019 the school day will finish at 1.30pm for the Christmas holidays. Pupils who travel on school transport will be collected at 1.30pm. We would kindly ask other parents and pupils to make necessary arrangements to be collected at 1.30pm. There will be no transport provision at the normal finish time of 3.20pm.
Please note that there will be no lunchtime canteen service on this day, although there will be the usual morning break service. Pupils entitled to free school meals will be able to use their provision at morning break.
