At Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy we believe that everyone is entitled to be treated with respect, compassion and understanding. Our vision is to create an outstanding learning community in which all children and adults are safe, valued, actively involved and motivated to make exceptional progress.
Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy is a community school for children in the 4–7 age range. We have an admission limit of 90. Children normally move to Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy in the September after their seventh birthday. The academy is part of Ormiston Academies Trust, a not-for-profit multi-academy trust sponsoring 39 academies across England.
“At Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy our aim is to create a learning community where learning for all is fun, to develop a culture and environment of challenge, where achievement, at all levels, is valued and celebrated.”
We believe in creating a safe, happy and healthy environment where children can feel positive about themselves and the academy. Everyone is encouraged to value and respect one another and the environment. Through our broad, balanced and creative curriculum we ensure high standards of teaching and learning that enable all pupils to reach their full potential.
We are committed to providing teaching and learning experiences that are enjoyable, challenging and relevant to the needs of each individual.
Pupils have opportunities to learn independently and to develop their own creative ideas, and celebrating success is essential to our school family. Indeed, we seek to recognise and celebrate all successes (both inside and outside of school).
We were graded as ‘good’ in all areas by Ofsted, after our most recent inspection. Click here to see our reports on the Ofsted website.
