At Packmoor Ormiston Academy we believe in igniting a thirst for learning through an exciting and varied skills based curriculum through providing experiences that children remember and through creating a learning environment that is rich, eye catching and stimulating.  Our ethos for teaching and learning allows children to develop their individual skills, abilities and interests to achieve, feel proud and become life-long learners.

The design of our curriculum ensures that it meets the needs of our children.  A focus on the basic skills of Reading, Writing and Maths runs throughout the curriculum, giving children the opportunity to apply skills learned in varied ways.
