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.
The school gates will be locked between 8.30–9.00am and 3.00–3.45pm. Thank you for your continued cooperation.

We want to do our best for all children in our community, and at Ormiston Cliff Park Junior 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 Acadmies Trust to discourage leave of absence during term time and holiday requests are not normally authorised.
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.

To add an extra incentive, for every […]
