Welcome and Ethos

Welcome to Orchards Infant and Nursery School.  Everyone at Orchards is dedicated to ‘Being the best we can be …not in the world but for the world. We aim to create a safe, happy and caring environment where every child is valued and respected as an individual. We are very proud of the school and welcome visitors.

We hope you find our website informative. Find information about our new Nursery and Reception starters here.

We are a Community Infant and Nursery School for children aged 3 to 7. We also have a Special Support Centre for children who have an education and health care plan, where their primary need is speech and language.

Our expectation of children is high.  We aim for all children to make excellent progress.  We want all children to leave us as confident readers, writers and mathematicians. We are proud of our dedicated staff team who are there to educate and nurture our children.  We work in very close partnership with parents and carers to support, recognise and celebrate all achievements.

We want all children to gain skills, which enable them to become citizens of the future and to lead confident, healthy and independent lives, making a valued and positive contribution to society.

Learning at Orchards is underpinned by an exciting curriculum, designed to deliver academic excellence and enrichment.  We have excellent outside learning spaces which support a stimulating and challenging learning environment.  We hope your children will be very happy at our school and we look forward to working with you.
