Windmill Primary School is a large school in Headington, Oxford. As a school we have many strengths and these include our strong emphasis on a Values system that underpins all aspects of school life, our 100% commitment to ensuring that every child has the opportunity to experience a creative and energising curriculum.
Dear Parents & Carers, We are pleased to announce that after the Easter break we will be able to open up the bike sheds again and allow anyone who bikes or scooters to school to do so again. We are going to have 2 separate arrangements depending on whether your child cycles/scoots alone or with an adult. The difference is all to do with the 1 way system and trying to make it simple for everyone. If your child is in Years Reception to 4 Mornings Please come through the gates and enter the bike sheds via the new entrance near the gate. All bikes that are to be left should be locked up here. You can then leave the shed by the exit near to the school building and drop off as usual. Afternoons Parents should come into school as usual and walk to the shed to collect your bike (if in Year 2 collect your child first!) Please enter by the same entrance as in the mornings, collect the bike and then leave via the exit near to the building. You can then wheel the bike around to meet your child as usual. If your child is in Years 5 & 6 As many of our children in these year groups ride by themselves we are going to use a slightly different location to store the bikes. Mornings Children can enter via the car park gates and leave their bikes on the racks which will be located under the window outside 6RB and leave bikes there. They can then go around to their classes. Afternoons Children can leave class as usual and collect their bikes front the racks before returning home. Please: Wheel bikes and scooters around school (adults and children!) rather than riding. Wear a helmet to and from school. Wearing a helmet makes cycling so much safer for your child. We hope that these arrangements help to get those who wish to cycle back into it. We will of course be on hand to help out on the first day back! Best wishes, The Windmill Team
