Corona Virus Updates

We will be using our school blog to update parents and carers with the latest news and advice. You can view the blog by scrolling below. The same posts will also appear on our Facebook Page and parents will also continue to be emailed and texted updates. Download the Parents Guide to School Closure during the Covid19  closures here, it's excellent.

Key Worker Provision

Ormiston Rivers Academy will continue to offer school provision to the children of key workers, Monday to Friday 8.40am to 3.20pm. The advice is very clear that where possible, you should keep children at home.  Therefore you should only request to use the school provision if both parents are key workers and no other childcare is available, or in the case of a lone parent family where the parent is a key worker.


In order to access a place for your child, we ask that you complete the form below. Please can we ask that you give as much notice as possible for the provision required.  All parents need to complete the new form, including those who have previously notified us.


If you require any further information please contact
