To support our pupils and parents we have created this ‘Transition Page’. This page will contain information about Secondary schools our pupils will be attending – this page will be for your reference only, please contact the Secondary School directly for information you cannot find on the School’s Website. The page will also be updated once the Secondary Schools have provided relevant information.
Schools below are listed in date order of their open evenings.
Year 6-7 Transition Meeting 29.09.2021
Oaks Park – Open Evening
We are pleased to be able to welcome prospective Oaks Park students and their families to visit
and experience our school in person once again. We are aware that historically a number of
students from Uphall Primary have joined our school to undertake their secondary studies.
As one of our feeder schools, we would like to continue this relationship in order to ensure that all students
are fully informed of their Secondary school options and have a smooth transition from your school
into Oaks Park High School.
Our Open Evening will take place on Thursday 7th October from 3.30pm-6:30pm. We
are looking forward to welcoming prospective students and families to see our school,
facilities and meet our staff and students.
We are excited to welcome you to tell you more about:
● Our fantastic Year 7 induction programme, including our summer camp provision
● The high-quality education and facilities we offer at Oaks Park
● The extensive safeguarding processes and our commitment to children’s welfare and
to the highest standards of education
● Our award winning careers programme, designed to empower and inform our students
and best support them with their future aspirations.
To enable us to do this, we have made some COVID-19-related adjustments to our normal
arrangements to enable this event to take place safely. To visit us you will need to apply for
a tour through our school website. This will allow us to control the number of people in
the school at any one time. Our Headteachers talks will take place at 4:30pm and 6:30pm.
Please note, to attend our Open Evening, you will need to apply and have confirmation of
your booked tour slot. We will be unable to accept visitors who have not booked and
received confirmation of this booking prior to the evening or visit.
In addition, we will be running tours for families, during the school day, to enable families to
see our school whilst lessons are taking place. These will take place from Wednesday 13th
October and bookings can be made through our school website.
We will also be sharing virtual information, including our virtual tour map of the school, key
information and a video with staff and students, to introduce you to our school. This
information will be shared on our website in the run up to Open Evening.
We look forward to welcoming you to Oaks Park in the coming weeks, either by visiting us
for Open Evening by applying for a tour of the school, or through our virtual online offer.
Applications to Oaks Park must be made by 31st October 2021, which is the national
deadline for all secondary school applications for September 2022.
Loxford School – Open Evening
Loxford School are pleased to be running a series of ‘Open Events’ for prospective students wishing to join us in September 2022.
Families of students currently in Year 6 only who would like to visit our school are invited to attend one of the following open events:
Open mornings: Will run daily from Monday 4th October 2021 until Friday 15th October 2021.
There will be two tour slots available at 10.10AM or 11.30AM – tour numbers will be limited to 30 students per slot.
Students currently in Year 6 will be able to attend with one parent/carer and receive a full tour of our school buildings. This will be a fantastic opportunity to see our staff and students in action and get a real sense of how our school works; you will get to witness our outstanding teaching and the fantastic behaviour of our students.
Your tour will be led by an experienced member of our staff and you will have a chance to ask questions throughout.
For families not able to attend one of our open mornings, there will be one Open Evening event on Thursday 7th October 2021.
Students currently in Year 6 will be able to attend with one parent/carer from either 4.00 PM – 5.00PM or 5.00 PM – 6.00 PM.
During the open evening event there will be a short address by the Headteacher, followed by a tour of the school. Departments will run interactive activities throughout that your child will be able to enjoy. Spaces at the open evening will be limited and must be booked.
Booking your event: We hope to see many of you at our Open Morning events as this will be the best opportunity to see a normal working day at our school. Please note, we will only allow one parent/carer to attend our open events along with your child in year 6. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate additional family members and siblings at these events.
In order to ensure everybody gets a chance to attend and is able to stay safe, spaces at all of our open events must be booked in advance. In order to book you preferred event, date and time, please visit www.loxford.net and browse through the tab until you find ‘Open evening 2021’.
Please note that families will be able to attend one event only. Follow the booking link below to fill out your details and select your preferred time slot from the dates available. Following completion of your booking, you will later receive an email to confirm your tour. If for any reason you are unable to attend, please contact the school via email (LSST@loxford.net) so we can make the space available for another family.
We are only able to accept requests from families with students in Year 6 and request that when you attend your tour, you bring proof of your child’s current school year. This could be proof of your child’s date of birth or a letter from your child’s primary school with their class and year stated.
We are delighted that our school is fully open and running a full timetable for you to observe and whilst there are no current requirements for students and staff to wear masks in the building, we fully support your choice to wear a mask when attending your event in order to make yourself and others feel safe.
We are looking forward to welcoming you.
