Deploy Java 8 and up with Group Policy

Does Anyone push out Java 8 with Group Policy. I have a school who needs to access a site that uses Check Point Software which that needs java to check if you antivirus is updated and your java is updated. I managed to setup a GPO that pushes java and the deployment.conf, deployment.properties, exclusions.sites file to the clients but i noticed on the 64bit machines it only pushes java 32 bit.

Java 64bit is a different MSI and therefore must be deployed as a separate package. With that said, the 32bit version is usually sufficient for most deployments. IE10 and 11 will dynamically decide to run 32-bit versions of themselves if the web page requests a 32-but add-on such as Java.  Other browsers handle plugins in their own fashion. I'd only deploy Java 64bit if the vendor specifically needs it for memory-intensive applications.
