End of the Academic Year Communication to Ormiston Park Academy Community

20th July 2021

Dear Parent/Carer

Re: End of the Academic Year Communication to Ormiston Park Academy Community

I am extremely proud of Ormiston Park Academy and how our students, staff, families and community have so efficiently and effectively adapted to everything that this academic year has presented to us. It has been a tremendous group effort since September and I truly believe that we have developed as an academy in so many different ways across the year despite the challenges that we have faced. This is a true testament to the very high aspiration that we have for all of our students and is combined with abundance of resilience and creativity our staff team and student body have. These are key academy values that we live by daily.

I hope that all of our families can have a safe and restful summer break and that our students return to the academy in September both refreshed and enthused for learning.

September return to academy arrangements:

Wednesday 1st Sept – INSET Day (academy closed to students)

Thursday 2nd Sept – INSET Day (academy closed to students)

Friday 3rd Sept – Year 11 + Year 7 onsite only

Monday 6th Sept – All Year Groups onsite

Please could I ask that parents / carers ensure that their children continue to COVID19 LFD test twice a week throughout the summer break and report test results to NHS in order to keep themselves and others safe. The government have asked for schools to LFD test secondary students twice in the first week of their return and we have planned this into the return.

If you require additional uniform ‘Snappy schoolwear’ our uniform supplier will be onsite with a ‘pop up shop’ on Wednesday 18th August from 10am to 4pm, based in our Ascend building, and purchases can also be made via their website www.snappyschoolwear.com

Thank you for the continued support for the journey we are on as Ormiston Park Academy and for the positive feedback that we receive. It is very much welcomed.

Take care.

Kind regards

Yours sincerely
