Acting Headteacher

This week we had a visit from the CEO of BDAT, Carol Dewhurst. She keeps in regular contact with all of the BDAT schools and it was great to see her around. She attended the governing body meeting, which was also the first one for our new Chair of governors Anthony Blackwell.

This week I have used the newsletter to share information and I hope to get plenty of responses via the reply slip about whether you would like the use of an app for school to communicate.

Acting Headteacher – Snow

Hello, today has brought with it the snow to school and the surrounding district with seemingly quite localised snow fall and conditions. Oxenhope Online did a great job keeping people informed of local information and updated with information about the school being open as well – thank you. The conditions in Oxenhope around school were not as bad as in some other areas although it was something of a shock to me because on the far side of Keighley all was fine.
