A MESSAGE FROM THE HEADTEACHER
Welcome To Orchard Junior School
On behalf of the children, staff and governors I would like to welcome you to Orchard Junior School … a place where children really do enjoy learning.
At Orchard our children thrive in a happy, safe and supportive learning environment. Throughout their time here children are encouraged to love learning, work hard and welcome and meet the challenges that new learning brings.
We pride ourselves on having the highest expectations of all our children and believe that there are no limits on what they can achieve. At the heart of the school is our commitment to work in partnership with parents, carers and the local community to raise aspirations for all and to provide a high quality education for every child. Our goal is to ensure that each individual has the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in life and to become a lifelong learner.
At Orchard we know that every moment in a child’s education matters. Our creative curriculum has been designed to support every child's learning. Inspiring and innovative classroom teaching with a wide variety of educational visits and trips brings this curriculum to life and ensures that every child is challenged.
Central to our curriculum is the development of social, moral, spiritual and cultural understanding in order that our pupils become confident, caring and respectful citizens.
A rich programme of extra-curricular activities provides further opportunities to increase the self-confidence and develop the skills of every learner.
Everyone can succeed at Orchard.
We look forward to welcoming you into our school and introducing you to our wonderful pupils.
Mrs Carol Taylor
