Update Tuesday 5th January 2021


Dear Parents and Carers


Happy New Year from us all at Oak Lodge. We hope that you were able to have an enjoyable break.


I need to inform you that further to the National lockdown announced yesterday evening by the Prime Minister, Oak Lodge School with immediate effect will only be open for our most vulnerable pupils and the children of critical keyworkers. 


The leadership team will use the remainder of this week to look at the new lockdown guidelines and how we can ensure we meet the needs of all our pupils and staff to keep the Oak Lodge community safe. Further information will be communicated to all parents via the website, email and text as and when it is available. 


Thank you for your continued patience and support. 


Kindest regards



Karen Brown

Acting Headteacher

Whole School Covid Risk Assessment



Self-isolation period reduced from 14 days to 10 days


Self-isolation is essential to reducing the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) as it breaks the chains of transmission. After reviewing the evidence, the Department for Health and Social Care is now confident that we can reduce the number of days that contacts self-isolate from 14 days to 10 days. This was set out in the UK Chief Medical Officers' statement on the self-isolation period on 11 December.


From today, the self-isolation period for close contacts of a positive case of coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed from 14 to 10 days. This change applies to all those who are currently self-isolating including those who commenced self-isolation before today. This means that if you are on the 11th, 12th or 13th day of your current self-isolation period today – you can stop isolating. Any new cases identified for self-isolation will be advised to self-isolate for 10 days.
