In an attempt to remove all cash and cheques from school we are asking all parents to only use our e-payment method to pay for dinner money. This can be done online using a very secure website called ParentPay or in cash at local stores where you see the PayPoint logo.

ParentPay offers you the freedom to make payments whenever and wherever you like, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – safe in the knowledge that the technology used is of the highest internet security available.

You have a secure online account, activated using a unique activation code. When you first logon to the ParentPay site you will be asked to change these and create your own Username and Password for future logins. If you have two or more children at the school you can merge their accounts once logged in.

Making a payment is straight forward and ParentPay holds an electronic record of your payments to view at a later date; no card details are stored in any part of the system. Once you have activated your account you can make online payments straight away.

Already have a ParentPay account?
If you already have a ParentPay account, either with our school or another ParentPay school, you can simply login to that account and add your other children via the Add a child tab on your home page. You will need the activation username and password to do this.

New to ParentPay?
You have a secure online account, activated using a unique activation username and password; you will be prompted to change these and to keep them safe and secure as your Username and Password for future logins.

If you have two or more children at a ParentPay school, you only need to activate one account to create your ‘main account’ and then add your other children via the Add a child tab on your home page.

Those parents wishing to pay cash should take this letter to their local PayPoint store to make payment by scanning the bar code at the bottom of this letter. The minimum payment is £10. If you would like us to order you a PayPoint card visit the ParentPay page on the Ormiston Park Academy website for instructions on how to place your order. There is a charge of £2 for this service.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you need assistance or need to know more about how ParentPay works by selecting the ParentPay button on www.ormistonpark.org.uk.

We thank you for your support in using ParentPay which will help the school enormously, thank you.

Yours sincerely
Headteacher

*Please allow up to 48 hours for your payment to be credited via the PayPoint network.

Ormiston Park Academy Announces New Principal

December 19th, 2019|

Ormiston Park Academy has today announced the appointment of a new Principal, Mr Mark Roessler.

Mr Roessler, who will take up the post in September 2020 at the start of the new academic year, is an extremely experienced principal, with over 23 years of school leadership and teaching experience.

Mark Roessler will take over from retiring Principal Huw Derrick, who has led the academy, which is sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT), for more than 15 years.

During his headship, Mr Derrick led the academy on its journey to achieve a Good Ofsted rating in all categories in 2017, having previously been rated Requires Improvement and making it the school of choice in the local area.

An experienced school leader, Mr Roessler is currently serving as a Headteacher overseeing the development of a new all-through school in West Sussex. He previously held positions as Deputy Head and Assistant Head in schools in Croydon, where he worked for 16 years.

He also holds a professional qualification for school inspection and has been a serving Ofsted Inspector for five years, bringing understanding and experience of what makes an Outstanding school to the role. A family man, he has been married for 18 years to his wife Nikki, has twin teenage daughters who are currently in Year 11 and has a much-loved rescued greyhound.

Mr Derrick, alongside the Board of Governors, senior leadership team and OAT, will now be working closely with Mr Roessler to ensure a smooth transition at the start of the new academic year in September and to ensure that the academy continues to build on the strong foundations established.

Mark Roessler, incoming Principal at Ormiston Park Academy, said:

“I am absolutely delighted to have been appointed Principal of Ormiston Park Academy and look forward to taking up the role in September 2020.

“I have a lifelong passion and drive for developing aspirational learners so that every child can secure the very best life chances possible. I believe that a strong culture and ethos that nurtures and develops children’s self-esteem and confidence in tandem with outstanding teaching and learning, will place Ormiston Park Academy as a beacon of excellence and the school of choice for the local community. I look forward to working with the students, staff, Governors, OAT and the whole school community to take the academy to new heights.”

Nick Hudson, Chief Executive Officer of Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT), said:

“We are pleased to be welcoming Mark Roessler to Ormiston Park Academy’s as its new Principal for next September. He has played an integral role in the leadership of a variety of school settings. We are confident that the experience and knowledge he will bring to the role will greatly benefit the academy and allow him to continue, and to build on the work of his predecessor.

“Mr Roessler shares our values and high expectations for Ormiston Park, and we look forward to working with him and the school community as the academy continues on its strong upward trajectory.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Huw Derrick once again for the tireless hard work, commitment and passion he has shown during his time at Park. We wish him all the best for his retirement.”
