Does my child qualify for free school meals?

We are fortunate to have all school lunches cooked fresh to order on site. Our kitchen staff can also cater for different dietary requirements. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are provided with free lunches, and we encourage as many children as possible to have them.

Menus are published on this website. When children come to school each day, they are able to choose their options for lunch, and these are sent directly to the kitchen to be cooked to order.

For children in KS2 who pay for meals, they currently cost £2.20. Payments for meals are made online, details of which are given to all parents when their children start at Oxley. Some children are also entitled to free school meals; if you want to find out more, just contact the school.

How can I get involved as a volunteer?

As a school, we are always looking for people to help and support us, and rely on volunteers for lots of things in school.

There are many ways you can volunteer around the school:

Joining our FOXES – this is our friends of Oxley team, we are extremely lucky to have an amazing team of volunteers that run our fundraising,  they are an essential part of school life and raise wonderful amounts of money each year for the school to spend on such things as Chromebooks, outdoor play equipment, polytunnel and lots more. If you would like to get involved please pop into the office where we can put you in touch with a FOXES member.

Reading – we have regular volunteers that come into school to help listen to the children read, this is an invaluable resource to the school. You would pop into school for an hour each week to help support the children and staff.

Becoming a Governor – becoming a governor is very rewarding. We are lucky enough to have a great team of governors already here at Oxley but we are always looking for more people to get involved. We advertise any vacancies in and around the school so keep your eyes peeled or pop into the school office to arrange a chat with one of the governors about how to get involved.
