U9 Boys County Cup First Round.

Well done to the U9 boys football team who played in the first round of the County Cup and won the group in style. 

This was the first game for our new U9 boys team, the boys kicked off the evening playing against Mereside with a very impressive performance, nice slick one touch football resulting in a great ball from Connor putting Jack through on goal to slot in the bottom Corner, great victory for the boys. After a well earned rest they went on to play Longnor and continued their great passing play winning 2-0 with goals from Jack and William. Our third and final game was against a very strong Mount Pleasant team which finished a goalless draw.

A fantastic team performance with several players making their school debut, good luck boys in the next round.

The future looks bright for the Oakmeadow boys.

Parent Council Meeting 22/11/2017

Agenda:  22-11-17


  1.  Lunchtimes and the provision – to develop KS1 and KS2 relationship so we are looking at using 12-1 as the nominated lunch slot.  We have extended out outdoor area in preparation.  We would like your thoughts.
  2. Review of school photos.  Following some complaints- is the exercise of going out to tender right to do again in September?  As parent council led on this initially it seems right that this is reviewed as a group.
  3. Sports day:  Mr Ostermeyer has recently changed the way sports day runs, adding a different way of working intis area.  We would like your thoughts on how this is running?  Are you seeing the benefits?  Is there anything you’d like to change?

It has been brought to our attention that there is some concern about hand foot and mouth at Oakmeadow. 

We would like to share the following information to reassure you:

  • Hand, foot and mouth disease is a common infection that causes mouth ulcers and spots on the hands and feet.
  • It’s most common in young children – particularly those under 10 – but can affect older children and adults as well.
  • Hand, foot and mouth disease can be unpleasant, but it will usually clear up by itself within 7 to 10 days. You can normally look after yourself or your child at home.
  • The infection is not related to foot and mouth disease, which affects cattle, sheep and pigs.

This has been taken from:

This is also information provided on the NHS website:

Preventing hand, foot and mouth disease

  • Stay off work, school or nursery until you or your child are feeling better – there’s usually no need to wait until the last blister has healed, provided you’re otherwise well.
  • Use tissues to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze and put used tissues in a bin as soon as possible.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often – particularly after going to the toilet, coughing, sneezing or handling nappies, and before preparing food.
  • Avoid sharing cups, utensils, towels and clothes with people who are infected.
  • Disinfect any surfaces or objects that could be contaminated – it’s best to use a bleach-based household cleaner.
  • Wash any bedding or clothing that could have become contaminated separately on a hot wash.

So if you feel your child is showing any symptoms please contact your GP and inform the school.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast can be the most important meal of the day.  But many children regularly miss breakfast or resort to snacking on crisps and chocolate on the way to school.  Breakfast Club can provide a combination of a healthy breakfast, early morning childcare and an opportunity for educational and social activities.

Eating breakfast has been shown to improve children’s problem solving abilities, memory for learning, concentration, and help them start the school day on time, calm and ready for learning.

During their time in Breakfast Club children have the opportunity to spend time socialising with their friends and classmates.  We offer a wide range of activities including board games, colouring sheets, Ipads and an active game.

If you would have any queries please feel free to contact Miss Turner through the school office. Breakfast Club runs from Monday to Friday.  The doors are opened at 7:50 am, and remains open for children to arrive until 8:30 am, booking is essential via school money.


Year 1 Respect Assembly

Year 1 started the half term with an assembly focussed on our value – respect.

We discussed the meaning of respect and found out that it is about how we feel about someone or something and how we treat them. We did paintings to show the rest of the school and some children explained what it meant to them. This is what they had to say;

I respect my Mummy because she gave a kidney to my Grandad.


I follow rules from Mummy and Daddy to show them that I care about how they feel.


I use kind words because I respect other people’s feelings.


I use kind hands and feet because I care about keeping other people safe.

Sophie R

I look after our outdoor area because I love spending time out there with my friends.


I take pride in myself in the way I act and speak to keep my new baby brother and myself safe and happy.

Sophie M

I respect my Uncle because he gave some of his liver to my Auntie.


We showed through drama the respect we need to show to the rest of the world around us in our community and shared the Blue Planet 2 advert and some of the amazing animals we need to respect in our wider world.
