Fingerprint System

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.

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast club now takes place everyday in the DT room (via the schools main entrance) from 8.00 am to 8.30 am. Children can bring their own snack or alternatively toast, squash and cereal will be provided. If you would like your child to attend please obtain a permission slip letter from the main office or email us at There will be a charge of £3.00 per week in order to cover supervision costs. This will need to be paid in advance for each half term period.

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.
