There are several benefits of this arrangement:

    Oldfield Primary School

    They ran an after school karate club at Oakworth Primary when I was acting head. When I took on the position of Headteacher at Oldfield school I had no hestitation in asking them to see if they could accommodate Oldfield Primary with a karate club.

    Within two days of my phone call they had organised a demonstration for an assembly, printed out the letters to the parents and set a date to start. Many thanks for all your help guys!
