Parents’ information

This area of our website provides information that you need to know to help your child succeed in their learning.

We hope you find what you are looking for, however, please do not hesitate to contact us if your questions are not answered here.

If you would like a paper copy of any of the information held on this webiste, please contact the academy, and we can provide it for you free of charge.

We hold open days for prospective new families (Reception Year admissions) in October of each year; please check here, as well as local press for details in September. If you would like a tour of the school at any other time (for example, for in-year transfers from another school) please contact the office on 01493 665123.

Water Bottles Required

As a precautionary measure we have turned off the water supply to our drinking fountains.

We would like every child to bring a water bottle to the Academy, clearly labelled with the child’s name and class.

Fruit juices / squash should not be in bottles to prevent any issues relating to tooth decay.

Jugs of water will also be available in classrooms.

Thank you for your support.

Don’t forget!

Please do not drive or park on Orde Avenue, or the academy staff car park.  Thank you for your continued cooperation.

Regular attendance at school is vital to promote good learning, positive attitudes and strong friendships

We want to do our best for all children in our community, and at Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy we firmly believe that regular attendance at school is vital for children as it promotes good learning, positive attitudes and maintains continuity in their education and friendships.

Home and school must work together to ensure that children feel safe and secure, and know the routines clearly.

Please note that it is the policy of Ormiston Academies Trust to discourage leave of absence during term time and holiday requests are not normally authorised.

Attendance and punctuality

We are committed to giving your child the best opportunities that we can. We do this most effectively when working with you.

Please feel free to download a copy of our home/school agreement, from the Related documents section of this page.
