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.

Communication with the academy

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:

  • See them at the school gate at the end of the day if it is a quick query. You can at this time arrange an appointment to see them at another time (please be aware that staff have scheduled meetings on Monday nights and at least one other night a week).
  • Phone the school office on 01493 661523 and leave a message (please be aware that they may not get the message until the end of the school day, unless it is urgent).
  • Email the school office to leave a message on [email protected].

For a full copy of the complaints procedure, please refer to the Related documents area of this page.

Timetable and Curriculum

Core curriculum subjects (English and Maths) are taught in the mornings, please make every effort to ensure that if you need to make any medical appointments for your child you avoid these times.

Your child’s curriculum coverage is summarised in the Classes and curriculum area of this website.

Homework

Please support your child to undertake homework tasks and let us know if they find them particularly challenging or easy.

Behaviour

At Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy we work hard to encourage and reward good behaviour.  Children also achieve behaviour credits for attendance and maintaining positive attitude as well as academic work within class.

Reading

Please maintain your support for your child by listening to them read as much as possible, preferably every day.  This reading practice can be using any book, not just those on the reading scheme.

You can check your child’s progress in reading at any time by logging on to Accelerated Reader; each child has a unique log on. Further details can be found on our Accelerated Reader page.

Parents’ Forum

The Parents’ Forum is an opportunity for the academy to share what is happening and for parents to discuss academy-wide issues with the senior management of the school. Individual issues should be dealt with as outlined in the ‘Communication with the academy’ section, above.
