Biometric system letter
We have implemented a student recognition system using biometrics at Oakfield Academy.
This system enables parents to put money into a Parentpay account. This money is then available for your child to pay for their food at break/lunchtime by simply using their fingerprint to pay. Please note, this is the only facility available to enable your child to purchase items from the cafeteria as this is a cashless system.
Oakfield Academy’s Breakfast Club will run from 8am – 8.40am each school day during the year. The weekly charge for breakfast club is £10.00, this charge is to cover the supervision costs only (a light breakfast will also be served when government guidance permits this and our location for the club returns to our DT Room). The club will be held in our Hall, pupils should enter via the main entrance where there will be appropriate sanitising equipment for each pupil to use.
For paperless consent and payment on Parentpay, please choose ‘pay for other items’ and BREAKFAST CLUB will take you to the appropriate section. Please also indicate on the form if your child has any allergies. Please do not hesitate to contact the academy office if you have any queries.
A reminder that at Oakfield Academy we encourage pupils to eat a healthy diet. If your child brings a packed lunch can you please ensure your child brings healthy items for their lunch and a healthy snack. Please avoid chocolate, sweets and fizzy drinks.
Change to legislation regarding food allergens in food. If your child has a food allergy you must complete the Special Diets form and return it to our school kitchen.
