At Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy we have nine classes which allows us to have three classes each in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
Teachers and teaching assistants work closely together to plan and provide opportunities for learning within their year groups and across the school.
Our classes are:
|Reception||Year One||Year Two|
Please take a look at the Our curriculum page here, and individual year group pages listed in the Classes & curriculum menu to find out more about the classes and curriculum.
Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy has adopted the National Curriculum as the foundation for planning learning opportunities and experiences for our children in Year 1 and Year 2.
We believe that children learn best when they can build on new skills through different learning contexts that inspire them. We plan our learning through a creative curriculum approach where children can make links in their learning and apply literacy and numeracy to all areas of life. We use themes and topics to motivate and challenge our children to learn.
Work in Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy’s Early Years is planned using the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
Marking and feedback at Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy relates to the aims and values of the school as a whole, and seeks to acknowledge the children’s achievements, at the same time as helping them to understand any challenges or problems they may be having. We support all children equally, regardless of aptitude; fair, positive, and clear feedback and marking helps us to achieve this. We aim to inform parents of these principles, including our individual work marking structure:
