  • September 2020 Re-opening

    Published 10/08/20

    Result of the COVID-19 risk assessment for the full reopening of Oakley Vale Primary School from autumn term 2020.

    Following the Government’s announcement that schools are to reopen to all students at the start of the autumn term 2020, we have been preparing our school to safely welcome back students and staff. This has involved a comprehensive risk assessment process to ensure risks continue to be effectively managed. Consideration has been given to balancing the minimisation of risks from Coronavirus (COVID-19) with providing a full educational experience for children and young people, in line with Government guidance.

    Government guidance for the reopening of schools, including that for parents and carers, can be accessed here.

    Oakley Vale Primary School and The Brooke Weston Trust will continue to monitor guidance and will adopt a dynamic risk management approach to ensure the operation of the school remains as safe as possible.

    The results of our risk assessment are published here. We have also produced an information booklet which is intended to give you an outline of what our new school environment will look and feel like and reassure you that we will do everything we can to make school as safe as it can be for students and staff.

  • Update on Closure

    Published 19/03/20

    Dear Parent/Carer,

    The government announced on Wednesday 18 March 2020 that all schools in the UK are to be closed to students, with the exception of children of 'key workers' and vulnerable children as defined by the government.  There should be clarity from the Department of Education over their precise definition of ‘vulnerable’ later today.

    In the meantime we need to get an accurate idea of the number of children we educate who are the ‘children of key workers’ as defined by the government – the Cabinet Office is due to confirm this later today.  It would help our hard pressed staff enormously if you could complete this short questionnaire by today (Thursday 19th March) at 5.00pm so we can work on having have the right resources to stay open. It is our expectation key workers will be required to verify their identify and occupation in some way by the government to ensure only children of those covered by the definition are in school.

    Please click this link to access the questionnaire (

    Thank you for your co-operation. A quick response is much appreciated.

     Kind regards,

     Emma Goodwin
