I am delighted on behalf of the staff and governors to introduce you to The Orchard Primary School.

On 1st January 2018 we became an academy and joined the Herts for Learning Multi Academy Trust.  For information about the trust please visit their website.

As well as this, on the 3rd September 2018 there have been some changes within our staffing. I have recently become Executive Head of both Alban Wood Primary and Orchard, with Mr. Williams becoming Head of School at Orchard. It is an exciting change and we look forward to the year ahead. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their ongoing support.

This website has been prepared to provide parents and interested parties with an overview of information about Orchard’s organisation, curriculum and regulations. It also gives an insight into the ethos, culture and character of Orchard, our values and expectations for each individual child.
Cooperation between staff, parents and governors is an important and vital means of ensuring positive growth and development for our children. For this to succeed, we strive to establish and maintain a good home-school partnership and welcome active involvement from parents in their children’s education and schooling.
We are always pleased to answer any further questions as they arise.

We hope that your child will be happy with us and look forward to welcoming you to Orchard. We work together to enable your child to find satisfaction and purpose in the activities that we provide whilst enjoying their time here.

Mr Sutton – Headteacher  and  Mr Williams – Head of School
