It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to The Orchards School website and to our school, ‘A Place to flourish and grow.’
At The Orchards School, we encourage all our children to strive to improve upon their previous achievements and develop their creativity and independence. We provide an environment, which enables them to be happy, confident and responsible and to make a positive contribution to our community. We are lucky enough to have a large site incorporating a forest school, story hut, large field, playgrounds and dedicated EYFS outdoor learning areas.
We promote a valued partnership between parents/carers and the school, which encourages a shared responsibility for the development, health and safety of the whole child.
We are all responsible for creating an ethos that promotes inclusive practice. We aim to achieve this through providing a positive and consistent approach, which is supportive of the continual emotional development of all and by demonstrating mutual respect, openness and honesty.
We provide an environment, which gives opportunities for all individuals to attain their positive aspirations and develop all the skills, which will support them in all aspects of their lives as responsible and healthy citizens.
To ensure that children receive teaching of the highest quality, the dedicated staff at The Orchards School are encouraged and offered the opportunity to further their professional skills within a supportive environment.
As a forward-thinking school community, we value and aim to increase community links through effective communication, being supportive and offering opportunities for inclusion, involvement and learning for all
We are proud to be part of the Black Pear Trust. The school converted to academy status on 1st April 2021.
