How to raise money for Oakfield Academy
If you set up a savings affinity/supporters account with the Coventry Building Society for your child you can link it to Oakfiled Fundraisers.
Every year the Coventry Building Society donates 1% of the average balances held from this affinity account to Oakfield Fundraisers.
Thank you to parents who have done this.
Our Academy is on The Giving Machine. Join and shop online and shops registered will donate cash to us at no extra cost to you. Find out more at www.thegivingmachine.co.uk or text MORE to 61211.
Textile recycling We have a textile recycling bank in school should parents wish to recycle old clothes, shoes, bags and other textiles. This is collected regularly by Bristol Green capitol partnership/Bristol Textiles recycling. Please visit their website for further details. www.btr-ltd.co.uk

Frome’s Youth Mayor opened our Oasis play area: one foggy day this spring. The Fundraisers helped pay for this area.
The Fundraisers enrich the curriculum: by paying for a local artist to lead an art master class for more able pupils. Pupils artwork is displayed in one of our garden areas.
Other ways to help us raise funds for the Academy include: Save For Schools Scheme: why not open a “Save For School” account with the Coventry Building Society Savers who have set up ‘linked accounts.’ When you save money, the Coventry donates money to the Oakfield Fundraisers. If you would like to help raise money for the school using this method, please contact the Coventry Building Society and set up a linked account in the “Save For Schools Scheme.”
