Pre-School places available from September 2020- contact the school office online for a booking form !!

Our Key worker groups are now full.   

We have a few places left in our Pre-school non key worker bubble. 

 

Although we do not have full time places available in our Key worker groups we may have capacity on particular days to accommodate your child as not all Key worker children are full time. If you would like to discuss this please email the school office and we will telephone you back to discuss your requirements and further explain the situation.

C19 Community Helpline is still open to support residents on 0161 770 7007

 

The helpline is there to support people of all ages who are isolated, do not have social network and need:

  • Urgent access to food
  • Urgent access to prescription medication 
  • Access to critical goods like sanitary product.  

For people to receive this offer they need to call the Helpline on 0161 770 7007. This is open from 9am-5pm on weekdays and 11am to 2pm on weekends. This bank holiday we will be operating the 11am until 2pm service.
The Helpline triage the calls into the right support. The Helpline has taken an average of 100 plus calls a day. The busiest day was last Friday where 167 calls were made to the helpline.
Where people require emergency food and supplies they are referred into the Place Coordination Hubs. They work with the Food Distribution (Oldham Foodbank and Action Together) to issue a basic package of food items and other essential such as sanitary products and basic toiletries. The hubs have also been providing back up to the pharmacy model where they have had capacity issues in making deliveries. The hubs are also able to link people to mutual aid, co-ordinate emergency response volunteers and act as a source of local intelligence.
 

Safeguarding of all children during COVID-19

We are very aware that most children are not accessing school at the moment due to lockdown measures in place and this may place a greater strain on many families.  

 

If you suspect abuse is taking place within a home please contact the school on info.dobcross@oldhamlea.org.uk  this is a completely confidential email address.  The school will acknowledge and investigate your concern.  Miss Travis and Mrs Hodgin are the designated safeguarding leads for school.  One of them is on site at all times between the hours of 7.30am and 4.30pm.  The email system is monitored throughout the day.  If an incident occurs outside of this time and needs immediate support please contact the police.
