Due to the frost, please keep to the area within the orange cones and not allow your child to go onto the KS2 playground. This area needs to thaw out before it can be used. The system of cones will be used in slippery / snow weather to give a gritted pathway onto the school grounds.
We recently held elections for parent governors. We got a good response with nearly 100 people participating and we now have three new governors: Warren Brown, Natasha Penn, and Gwion Williams. The fact we needed to hold an election reflects well on the enthusiasm and support shown by Orchard parents, and I would like to thank John Kwijuka and Rhys Evans for standing.
