Oakfield Academy serves the community by providing a variety of school venue hire options. Please contact us if you are interested in finding out more or would like to book our facilities for your group or project. We also work collaboratively with professional bodies and businesses as we aim to give all our pupils the opportunity to work alongside members of their community as they learn new skills. Our local partnership work is another effective way to teach our pupils the importance of being responsible members of the community.

Frome Learning Partnership
Frome Learning Partnership’s Parent and Family Support Advisors (PFSAs) and Family Support Practitioners (FSPs) work across schools in Frome to offer support and guidance for you and your family on various issues such as;
- parenting challenges
- emotional wellbeing
- family issues
- school attendance
- behavioural issues
PFSAs and FSPs can also direct you to other services or professionals which may be useful. The team work closely with children, young people, their family, and schools.
Everyone will need to agree what the purpose of the work will be. It is essential that parents and young people consent to working with us.
To access our service, school’s need to complete a referral form which will give us the family contact details and, highlights the needs so we can look at what support is best. If you are interested in having support from our team, please speak to your child’s school.
