Welcome to Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy

We hope that you enjoy finding out about our wonderful school.

Proposal to merge Ormiston Cliff Park Infant and Junior Academies

To further support the positive journey of our schools, we are proposing to merge them into a single primary school from the 2021/22 academic year. It is incredibly important to us that we hear the views of everyone in our community with regards to the plans to create one primary academy, and so the formal consultation period for this will run from Tuesday 12 January until midday Friday 26 March 2021. For more information click here. A presentation for families to view is available here.

Children born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017 are due to start school in Reception in the school year starting September 2021.

At Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy you’ll find a warm and friendly team of staff, children, parents and governors, who are passionate about learning. We all work together to create an exciting and creative curriculum which nurtures and inspires all children to be independent thinkers and learners, as well as making learning at our academy a truly irresistible experience.

The safety and happiness of all the children in our school is of paramount importance because we believe that children will make the most of their learning opportunities when they are safe and enjoying themselves. Each child is an individual with a multitude of talents which we aim to encourage during their time at Cliff Park.

With our ever increasing links to Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy, children and families who join us can look forward to sharing in the learning journey from ages 4 to 11. Childhood is a very special time and we look forward to working with all our families to ensure that our children experience the very best opportunities.
