Headteacher's Welcome

As Headteacher, I am delighted to welcome you to Orchard Community Primary School. 

Choosing the right school for your child is vitally important.  Parents want their children to receive a good education but they also want them to be happy and to feel safe and secure in school.  At Orchard we believe we can offer all these things.

As a school, we recognise the potential of every individual to achieve excellence. We are committed to providing the best possible education for all of our children in an inclusive, stimulating and caring environment, which enables pupils to develop high self-esteem and experience success in learning and in their personal growth.

We pride ourselves on creating an exciting learning environment, which is rich in opportunity through the implementation of a wide-ranging and challenging curriculum, which enables each child to develop a broad range of knowledge and skills to become confident and independent learners that give their best in all that they do.

We work together to create a school where good behaviour is expected, and everyone is treated with respect, understanding and sensitivity.

We would like to extend an open invitation to all prospective parents to visit us and to meet our excellent teaching and support staff. Please do not hesitate to contact the school office to arrange a visit at your convenience. 

Mrs Fiona Shields
