Keeping parents informed

Close monitoring of student progress and clear target setting enables staff to regularly review your child’s attainment as they move through the academy. Each student is set an examination or Key Stage target grade at the start of each year. Families are informed in writing about their child’s progress throughout the year although families can also keep track of their child’s progress via OMA Learning.

There are a number of Parents’ evenings offered throughout the year and you may be invited in to discuss your child’s progress outside of these times if we have concerns. Likewise, you may request an appointment with us if you wish to discuss your child’s progress and we will do our best to accomodate this.

All students receive an annual progress report in the spring or summer term.


Climate for Learning

We want all our students to have the benefit of learning in an environment where they feel safe, secure and respected. Developing well-rounded individuals who care for one another and the world around them is one of our fundamental roles.
To ensure our students have the very best climate for learning without interruption we have established a Behaviour Charter so that all students know what is expected of them.

The Ormiston Maritime Academy Climate for Learning Charter:

  • Climate for learning
  • Follow the instructions of all staff at all times
  • Arrive on time, fully equipped and ready to start work
  • Remain calm and orderly throughout your lesson
  • Always do your best work and allow others to do the same
  • Show respect for people’s right to work and personal space
  • No phones, no coats, no gum or food
  • Remember ‘Success Through Effort’

OMA Learning

OMA-Learning offers an enhanced method of communication between the Academy and home.

It provides a forum for students, staff and parents to celebrate achievement, share information, work with others and access lessons and homework. Students are able to manage, save and share their work on the web, empowering them to take ownership of their own learning.

Through our on-line services, families can view information about their children such as attendance, punctuality, rewards, progress and reports as well as use the system to pay for school meals, trips and visits.
