Oakfield is constantly developing and improving our provision both for pupils and the support we offer to parents and carers. As part of our drive to improve we will post a list of updates and changes on this page, including new policies, teaching strategies and Initiatives.
Letter to Parents/Carers regarding Covid-19 Pandemic
19th May 2020
You will be aware from the Prime Minister’s announcement that schools are looking to reintegrate certain year groups back from 1st June 2020.
Oakfield has remained open for the key workers, more vulnerable, and regularly made telephone calls and doorstep visit to check on the welfare of all the children and their families. This will continue to take place.
Senior Leaders are planning to invite year 10 students into school for some ‘face to face time with the teaching staff towards the end of the summer term. This will not be taking place immediately after half term. Further details will be given after the half term when more detailed guidance has been provided by the Government.
We can ensure you that social distancing is being followed. A copy of the school Social Distancing Policy is on the website
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school

Notice from the Vaccination Team
In light of the current Government Guidance that is in place regarding COVID 19 and school closures, we have had to temporarily suspend the School Based Immunisation Programmes. We will be following all the National guidance and updates closely and will look to recommence the programmes as soon as it is safe to do so.
If you have already completed a consent form for your child this will remain valid.
Alternatively if you wish to give consent or have any queries you can call us on 03333 583 397 (option 7, option 2) or contact the team via our email : Immunisationshull@intrahealth.co.uk
We aim to provide further information regarding re-arranged dates once we have had further guidance from Public Health England.
If you have any questions relating to Coronavirus please visit: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19
Oakfield School will be open on Monday morning, if you wish to take up the offer of your child to attend. As all schools are closed for the foreseeable future, Oakfield will be suspending all its usual procedures including reporting and monitoring student attendance.
You, as parents and carers are able to make the decision as to whether you send your child to school. If you are currently in self-isolation you cannot return until Easter.
If your child does not attend school you will have a pack of school work delivered and this will be replenished after the Easter Break.
You will also receive regularly telephone communication and a weekly ‘welfare’ check by a member of the school staff. The member of staff will be giving you a food voucher to the value of £15 to compensate for the food your child would have received if they were at the school. This is available to all Oakfield Students.
Those who attend will have meals provided during the day. The staff are planning organised activity sessions, with opportunity for some academic learning, including basic skills and intervention.
If you have any questions or want to speak to us, please contact the school and we will do all we can to advise and support you
I want to thank you all during this challenging time.
