We are very pleased to inform you that Outwood Academy Foxhills has been nominated for the Diabetes UK Good Diabetes Care in School Award. The award celebrates and showcases schools that deliver good care and support to children and teenagers with Type 1 diabetes.
As part of the nomination, Diabetes UK is inviting parents and carers of pupils with Type 1 diabetes to complete a brief online parent survey.
Please click on the button below to the survey if you would like to show your support, or to oppose this nomination. The survey should take no more than two minutes to complete. You can answer this survey anonymously should you wish to. Please note that the deadline to complete the survey is 25th June 2021.
Responses to this parent survey will be used by Diabetes UK to assess our school’s nomination for the award. You can find out more about the Good Diabetes Care in School Award at www.diabetes.org.uk/school-award.
Parent/Carers should have received a letter from OAF as we are delighted to be able to offer a Summer School to our September Year 7 intake children. This will take place 26th - 30th July 2021. Summer School Activities will run daily from 10am - 3pm. To ensure social distancing, your child should arrive no earlier than 9.50am and leave immediately at the end of the session at 3pm. Students will need to bring a packed lunch and drink with them each day. Additional water will be available to them but they must have a bottle to fill up. We would advise children to wear clothing suitable to the weather and activity, wear sun hats and sunscreen for outside activities.
The booking form, available on the button below, has a deadline of 4pm on Tuesday 29th June 2021. Please indicate on the order form as to which activities your child wishes to participate in on each day. Due to bubbles being in situ, your child may only access one activity per day. Places are limited for each activity, therefore places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. We would ask that if you book a place and you no longer wish to keep that place, please inform us so that we may offer that place to another student on the waiting list.
We have 16 Masterclasses running today (including daily Careers session). There is a short promotional video for parents which explains how to access sessions that have already happened and have been recorded. Praise to be sent for those students who have already accessed the sessions. Well done.
