Jackdaws Summer Picnic

Talented musicians from year 7 and 8 along with many other musical pupils from local schools attended the Jackdaws annual summer music picnic on Friday 28th June. It was a beautiful day of sunshine and wonderful musical performances. Our Oakfield Academy students ‘wowed’ everybody with their heartfelt singing along with some inspiring instrumental recitals on flute and piano. This was all followed by a picnic in the garden where all the pupils had the opportunity to get to know one another and share even more songs in a relaxed and friendly setting. Thank you once again to Jackdaws for inviting us to this fantastic event and congratulations to Edie Ray, Lily Pang, Willow Pincombe and Emily Taylor for their memorable performances.

Please visit our Academy/uniform page for full details of the uniform prices http://www.oakfieldacademy.co.uk/home/uniform-policies/

Lost property

Please encourage your children to reclaim missing items from Lost Property (in our Reprographics Room). Parents are welcome to claim items between 3-4pm each day. We return items that are clearly named, however looking at our current lost property box which is over flowing, clearly a lot of items are not named.  Our Reception will be open for the first two days of the summer holidays for reclaiming items (Monday 22nd, Tuesday 23rd July, 10am—2.00pm).

Items that have not been claimed by this time will be recycled or disposed of.

Year 7 & Year 8 Parent Information Session

On Wednesday 12th June from 3.30 – 4pm we are holding a parent information session for Year 7 and 8 parents which will be run by the Life Education Company who are running pupil workshops during June and July this year which have focused on helping pupils consider healthy choices with drugs, alcohol and tobacco.

The session will be looking at the topics that have been covered with the pupils as well as time to answer questions and share useful resources.

If you would like to attend, please confirm your attendance with our Reception team so we can plan accordingly.

The Coventry Building Society – raising money for Oakfield

The Coventry Building Society & Oakfield Academy Fundraisers

Did you know that if you open a savings account for your child you can help raise money for Oakfield Academy ?

They have a Supporters Account which is an Instant access savings account, you open the account with minimum balance of £1 and The Coventry Building Society will donate 1% to us -this donation doesn’t come out of your savings and you will still get paid interest on your savings.

Every year The Coventry Building Society donate a sum based on the total balances held in support of Oakfield Academy Fundraisers.

What a great way to help teach your child about saving and helping their school at the same time. Pick up a leaflet from our Academy reception or visit The Coventry Building Society in Frome.
