What a wonderful final week we have had !
On Monday, our Governing Body Attainment and Progress Committee met with our School Council and Rights Respecting Committee to talk to the children about all their work across the school. They were, and are, an absolute credit to you and the school. Please see below the email that Warren, the Committee Chair, sent over in recognition of all their amazing hard work.
Dear children on the School Council and Rights Respecting Committee,
Thank you so much for coming to talk to us yesterday. It was very exciting indeed. We were overwhelmed by how fantastic you were and so happy to hear about all the brilliant work you have been doing. It will make sure children and adults in Oxford Gardens Primary School understand and respect UNICEF’s charter. It is also wonderful that you will be representing the school when the assessors come to make the decision about whether we can make it from Silver to Gold. We certainly should if you are in charge! I think I can speak for everybody on the committee when I say that we have never met such an amazing group of young people, passionate about their group’s cause, and so able to explain it with such clarity and energy.
Thank you so much for all the work you are doing on behalf of the whole school .I am sure you would want to join us in also thanking Ms Winskill for her work with you.

As you can see, Warren mentions the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award, of which we have already achieved Silver. Over the months, we have all been working towards achieving Gold status, and on Wednesday we had our accreditation visit, which went really well. We will find out whether we have been successful before the end of the Summer Term, so watch this space. A huge thank you to Ms Winskill for all her amazing hard work and dedication to get the school in a position where we were ready to apply for this prestigious award. Should we be successful then we will be the only school in RBKC to have achieved this status. We have everything crossed.
Platinum Jubilee Celebrations roared across the school on Thursday. We had the best time, so much laughter and happiness and a suprise visit from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It was wonderful that so many of you could come in and share this special celebration with us. For those of you who could not attend I have attached below a film of our amazing Orchestra and Choir, who performed at our scheduled street parties throughout the afternoon. Many thanks to George and Ms Saeed for organising these and all their hard work.
Have a wonderful half term. Look after yourselves and please remember that we open our doors again on Tuesday 7th June. (Monday 6th June is a day when the children will be learning from home using their Seesaw accounts with the lessons and content uploaded by their Class Teachers)
Thank you for all your endless support
