A Letter from your new headteacher: Mrs Surch
Download it here
I asked the children in assembly 'What makes a great head teacher?' Their responses were:
I promise I will do my best to be all these things (may need to work especially hard at being cool and beautiful). Luckily I have a fantastic team of adults at Red Oaks who will help me.
I am really excited about being the new Head Teacher at Red Oaks.
Nov 12: Parent Governor Nomination Forms
There is one vacancy for a Parent Governor on the Governing Body
of Red Oaks Primary School and to invite parents, guardians or foster-parents who would like
to be appointed to put their names forward.
All nominations to be returned by Wednesday 21st
At Red Oaks we have been celebrating this amazing year; 2012.
As an example of living history we had three professional films made to capture the day the Olympic Flame came to Swindon; our Diamond Jubilee celebrations, when the queen was crowned in Red Oaks, as well as our special Red Oaks Olympic Games and picnic. It is our intention to bury a copy of the DVD in the school grounds and leave a map with a note, so that someone can dig it up in fifty years time, just like an archaeological dig. They will then see us in all our glory; a few moments in time that were very important in the life of our very creative school. Each film is about ten minutes long and celebrates everyone from nursery to year 6.

WOW did we have fun today in the snow!
Oct 11: Parents - Could you spare an hour to help us revitalise our Forest School area?
Our Forest School area is an 'outdoor classroom' for Nursery and Reception children who explore and learn in it every week. But it is in need of a bit of loving to make it safe and to get it ready for the year's activities. Miss Menzies will be busy down there from 12.30-3.00 on Monday 17th October and could really do with a gang of volunteers to help with the work. Could you spare an hour or two to help prune, weed and do a general tidy-up? Light work and great exercise!
Please see Miss Menzies (in Year 2) for details or let the office know that you are interested. Thank you.
