The Bistro and Academy Meals
Welcome to our Bistro! Our Bistros are situated in both our school halls, creating a restaurant-style feel to our lunchtimes. Our Bistros provide hot and cold meals, freshly prepared on site.
At Oxley Park Academy, children are able to have a true dining experience by eating in ‘The Bistro’. Whether the children bring their own packed lunch or are enjoying a school dinner, they are able to enjoy their lunch in an environment that is calm and comfortable. The children of Oxley Park Academy continue our ethos of being ‘FAB’ and understand the importance of being polite and respectful whilst in The Bistro. Children are reminded to be fussy and bothered about their manners by using cutlery sensibly, cutting food into sensible sizes and by finishing what you are eating before talking. We encourage a FAB atmosphere and ensure children respect the space where they are eating. The Bistro is a calm and respectful environment where children can socialise and enjoy their lunchtime.

Ordering Academy Meals
Children's meals need to be pre-ordered through the School Gateway app on your mobile device or tablet one week in advance. Menus will be available to view on the website shortly, but are available to view on your School Gateway app.
Bistro Menus for Academic Year 2021 - 2022
Temporary menus, commencing 24 January 2022 - End of Spring Term 2022
Due to some temporary unforeseen staff absences within our catering company, there will be some small changes to our menus from 24 January. New selections will be available to prebook over the next few days so please look out for them, and check that your children have bookings for every day that you require. As soon as the team are back to full capacity we are hopeful that the menu will be back to normal.
Pupils behave well. They are proud of their school and show high levels of respect, both towards each other and to staff. (Ofsted)
My children enjoy attending each day. They find the work challenging and interesting. They really like the teaching staff and feel supported and have grown in confidence.
Working at Oxley is so special and unique. Everyone is so kind, well-being is at the forefront and our community are a delight. I love my job! (Teacher)
The school missions and values make my son want to be a part of the Academy and try his best. I feel proud that my sons are at Oxley Park and the Nursery and I feel that the changes being made are really positive!
The children are oozing with so much more ‘zest’ since the start of this year, which makes us as parents happier and excited about their future at OPA.
My children love the school! My eldest was quiet, didn’t want to learn, didn’t enjoy school. Now he is settled, has friends and has started to show improvements. My daughter loves her teachers and is extremely enthusiastic.
