Values and Ethos

At Orchard Community Primary School we will try to provide the best environment for both children and adults to succeed.  We believe in a broad and balanced education which accounts for the needs of all our children and allows them to be the best they can be in a purposeful, challenging  but enjoyable atmosphere. We have fun but we work hard to attain the best we can for everybody so that we can celebrate success in whatever form it takes.

 We build our school around our 7 core values:

  • Excellence
  • Courage
  • Determination
  • Kindness
  • Fairness
  • Respect
  • Resilience

We strive to show these in all aspects of the school’s life so that our children can become responsible citizens, able to contribute to a diverse and tolerant community.

We want every child to be successful; to reach for success from the very first day they join us and throughout their school lives so that when they leave us, they have a love of learning for the rest of their lives.
