At Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy we have 12 classes which allows us to have 3 classes each in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
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:
|Year 3||Year 4|
|Year 5||Year 6|
Please take a look at the Our curriculum page here, and individual year group pages listed in the In this Section menu to find out more about the classes and curriculum.
The Junior School covers Key Stage 2 (ages 7–11) of the National Curriculum
The Government released a New National Curriculum which was implemented from September 2014. The National Curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens. As an academy, Cliff Park Junior, along with Cliff Park Infant, adopted the National Curriculum as a basis for planning and expectations for our children from Year 1 right the way up to Year 6.
The National Curriculum shows the statutory areas that the children must be taught by year group for the core subjects (English, maths and science) and non-core. All non-core subjects are broken down by Key Stage.
Marking and feedback at Ormiston Cliff Park Junior 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:
