Friends of Oakfield
The Friends of Oakfield is our association for parents (past and present), teachers and all those associated with the school. We are a registered charity and organise fun activities and events throughout the year, which raise a tremendous amount of money for the school. In 2018/19 we raised £13,500 to support the curriculum and enhance the quality of the children's school environment. FoO also fund the upkeep and maintenance of the swimming pool, which is such a special resource for our school.
FoO run events such as:
Quiz Night, Bunny Bingo, Fun Run, Curry Night, The Christmas Fair, New Parent Welcome Evening, Year 4 Leavers Disco and the Summer Fair as well as cake sales throughout the year.
In recent years, the money has been used for the following:
2015 – New playground markings
2016 – Re-tiling the swimming pool
2017 - Curriculum and ‘golden time’ resources for each classroom, 10 new laptops & the all-weather parasol in the quiet playground
2018 – Half the cost towards the new climbing frame (£10,000)
2019 - 0utside learning area improvement project - 5 multi coloured picnic tables, digital cameras & clipboards and renovation of our ‘butterfly garden’ with all-weather astro-turf. £2000 to update the school reading scheme.
How can you get involved?
All parents are automatically members of FoO and we encourage everyone to play an active role in supporting the 'Friends'. Not all FoO events are for fund-raising purposes; their social functions offer plenty of chance to make new friends and to become involved in the life of the school.
Anything that can be offered to help makes a huge difference, whether it is helping or attending at one of our events, baking a cake for a cake sale, coming along to one of our meetings or coming up with a new idea!
