Dou­ble award joy for academy

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR NEWS -

Or­mis­ton Mead­ows Academy, part of Or­mis­ton Academies Trust (OAT), is cel­e­brat­ing fol­low­ing the suc­cess of stu­dents Ryan Smith and Darcy Reynolds, at this year’s OAT An­nual Awards.

Year 6 stu­dent, Ryan, won the ‘Aca­demic Ac­com­plish­ment in Maths and English’ Award, spon­sored by Onecom, and Darcy won the ‘Young Hero’ Award spon­sored by TES, after hun­dreds of nom­i­na­tions were sub­mit­ted by OAT’s 36 academies across the coun­try.

The Or­mis­ton Academies Trust (OAT) Awards, now in their fourth year, recog­nise and cel­e­brate the achieve­ments of ex­cep­tional stu­dents and teach­ers from across the OAT net­work of academies, at an award ceremony in Lon­don.

Ryan always strives to do his best in school, and is always ac­tively seek­ing how he can im­prove, to achieve his tar­gets. He is a hugely tal­ented writer and his skills are shown in his work through­out the cur­ricu­lum, as well as show­ing the same de­ter­mi­na­tion in maths. Ryan has made ex­cel­lent progress dur­ing his time in Key Stage 2 at the academy and is achiev­ing above the ex­pected level in core sub­jects, as a re­sult of his ef­fort and hard work.

Ryan has also par­tic­i­pated on The Bril­liant Club Pro­gramme, a charity which OAT works closely with to widen ac­cess for stu­dents to at­tend top uni­ver­si­ties.

Darcy, winner of the Young Hero award, has a phys­i­cal dis­abil­ity, and since first join­ing the academy in 2012, she has shown a real de­ter­mi­na­tion to suc­ceed. She has demon­strated real progress in all her work and con­tin­u­ally shows per­se­ver­ance with ev­ery­thing she does, even when she finds her work dif­fi­cult.

Darcy is also a mem­ber of the academy choir and has taken part in lo­cal com­mu­nity per­for­mances at res­i­den­tial homes. She is fiercely in­de­pen­dent and is de­ter­mined to be just like all the other pupils in her class, and to suc­ceed.

Dur­ing her time at Or­mis­ton Mead­ows Academy, Darcy has been an in­spi­ra­tion to her peers and the mem­bers of staff who work with her closely. Her con­stant pos­i­tiv­ity about her learn­ing and de­vel­op­ment is a joy to all and has en­abled her to make rapid progress in many ar­eas.

Prin­ci­pal at Or­mis­ton Mead­ows Academy, Jean Watt, said:“Ryan and Darcy are a real credit to Or­mis­ton Mead­ows Academy and OAT.

“We are so proud of what they have achieved, as in­te­gral mem­bers of our school com­mu­nity, and we are de­lighted that their achieve­ments have been recog­nised with these awards.”
