WHAT WE'VE ACHIEVED TO DATE

We've been extremely busy over the past year! Here is a round up of some of the things we've been involved in

 New Technology for Creative Arts 

£8,828 in funds were raised and we were able to buy 20 iPads for the Art Department. 

The children will be using the iPads to research famous artists and use visual resources to support and inspire their work. In addition, the children have the opportunity to undertake some filming, explore some photograph manipulation as well as some use of paint apps. The iPads are not intended to replace the more traditional art skills and materials but rather add to the children's experiences.

Mr. Howes is in the process of procuring £700 worth of guitar equipment with the profits from the Music Night held in February 2020.

OAFS also purchased a MacBookPro for the Music department and we also purchased a Camcorder and Tripod for use throughout the school

Playground Refurbishment & Equipment

Phase 2 of the Prep playground refurbishment was completed during the spring, with the installation of a new stage area. It has been a great addition, facilitating play as well as expanding opportunities for outdoor teaching. 

In order to encourage group play during break times, OAFS replaced the worn table tennis tables and purchased additional football tables for the Prep playground. On the Pre Prep side, balance and pedal bikes were purchased for the children as well as sheds to store their playground equipment.

Ongoing Support

Here you'll find a list of things we will continuously support

Did You Know That OAF's...

Funds the lease of the school mini bus, which is used to transport the children to sports fixtures and other excursions. 

Contributes to the Year 6 Leavers Party? This year OAFS donation will remain at £15 per child (as per last year), with the remainder of the funding coming from the Year 6 parents and/or fundraising by the Year 6 children. 

Paid for a children’s theatre company to come to Oakfield and perform a Pantomime for the whole school? It was a huge success with pupils and staff alike, and we plan to continue to provide this event for the pupils in coming years.
