Parent Communication

At Ormiston Herman Academy we are committed to making sure that we are offering parents the very best for their children.

Our SATs results show that we are already exceeding the government’s tougher targets for pupil achievement, and we are proud to be making a positive difference to young people and the community that we serve.

However, we are keen to perform even better!

We value the learning that takes place in the home. We know that when parents and children share learning experiences it has a positive impact on the development of strong, lifelong learning habits.

We also recognise that education has changed since many parents went to school themselves!

Therefore, we need to know how we can help you to help your child move even further forward with their home learning.

Are you a little confused by how reading is taught in school?

Does literacy homework leave you wanting to know more about how children are taught to structure their writing?

Can we help you better by sharing our calculation strategies in mathematics?

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 end of the day if it is a quick query. You can (if necessary) arrange an appointment to see them at another time.
  • Phone the school office on 01493 661355 and leave a message (please be aware that teachers 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].
  • SLT staff are usually at the entrance points at the beginning and end of each school day, please address appropriate queries to them.
