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

Oakfield Academy’s Breakfast Club will run from 8am – 8.25am each school day during the year. Pupils enter through the main Reception entrance rather than through the red gates before moving to the breakfast club room where a light breakfast is provided which may include toast, cereals light pastries and squash. At 8.25am pupils then make their way to their tutor bases.     

We offer the facility for pupils to attend on specific days, weekly or termly. Costs are detailed below which are to cover the cost of staff supervision.

  • £2.50 per day
  • £11 (£2.20 per day) for a 5 day week.

Please note there are limited spaces and spaces need to be booked and paid for in advance to secure a booking.  To do this, please either phone or email the academy office giving details of your child’s name and the days/period you would like your child to attend. We will advise you if there is a space available and the relevant charge will be confirmed with you and then be set up on Parentpay to enable you to make payment prior to your child attending. Please also inform us of any details of any medical issues or allergies we need to be aware of.

For Safeguarding purposes, a register will be kept of all pupils who have a place at Breakfast Club, however we would ask you to kindly phone or email the academy if for any reason your child does not attend Breakfast Club when scheduled to attend.

All bookings need to be made at least 2 school days before your child attends to ensure registers can be updated and payment received. A member of staff will email you to confirm when this has been completed and confirm when your child will attend.
