Tel: 01923 672280


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

School Enlargement

The Local Authority decided that Orchard will be enlarged to a two-form entry Primary School from September 2014.
To facilitate this enlargement the school remodelled part of its main building to accommodate the Early Years classes and a brand new Computer Suite, during the summer 2013 break. During the academic years 2013-14 and 2014-15 the school had a brand new block built to accommodate Key Stage 2 classes, a new Main Entrance, Medical Room, Headteacher Office and Staffroom. The school also received additional outdoor space utilising some disused allotment land.
