The academy is committed to ensuring that learning continues beyond the classroom and views extended learning as an integral part of a student’s education.
One hour spent on additional work each night for five years has the effect of adding an extra year’s education for a child between the ages of 11 and 16.
Extended learning at Cliff Park Ormiston Academy is usually an extension/consolidation or preparatory activity. The type of tasks set include reading tasks, written activities, online learning, research and revision.
Students are able to complete extended Learning after school in the Library on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
We ask parents and carers to support in the completion of extended learning tasks by checking their son/daughter’s Planner on a regular basis. Extended learning materials are available through the academy’s on-line resource ‘Doddle’ and via the academy VLE.
Extended Learning clubs run at break and after the academy day.
