Water Bottles Required
As a precautionary measure we have turned off the water supply to our drinking fountains.
We would like every child from Monday 16th March 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.

Mr Reid, Head of School, is at the school gates at the beginning and end of each school day, please address appropriate queries to him.
If you are concerned about any element of your child’s progress or welfare, please do not hesitate to discuss this with their class teacher in the first instance.
If you wish to speak to the class teacher, either:
We hope that all children will have a happy and profitable time at Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy. We would also hope that the parents give their active support and are happy with the quality of education provided. If you are unhappy about any aspect of your child’s education or experience at school you should make an appointment to see the class teacher. We would hope that discussing the matter with the teacher should be enough to resolve the problem, however, if you are still unhappy and wish to take the matter further you should make an appointment to see the Head of School.
If after discussion with the Head of School the matter remains unresolved, you should tell the Head of School that you wish to make a formal complaint. The Head of School will give you a copy of the Complaints Procedure, the name and address of the Clerk of Governors, and the name of the Administrative Officer at the Education Advice Centre. You will be asked to make your complaint in writing, but you can attend a School Governors/Members and Officers of the County Council meeting where your complaint is considered and explained to them. It will then be for the Governors or the County Council to decide whether the complaint is justified, and what should be done about it.
For a full copy of the complaints procedure, please see our Policies and documents page, or ask at the office.
The academy library is open for children to use from 3.05 to 3.30pm, Monday to Thursday.
