Happy New Year to all our pupils, parents and staff. We look forward to seeing you all at the start of the new term on 7th January.
Years 3 and 4 pupils experience the culmination of the skills and proficiencies they have achieved during their learning journey, through nursery and into school, ready to be perfected and honed in their final two years at Orchard. This is a time of great progress when the individual's confidence blossoms and responsibilities are relished. We find these attributes provide inspiring role models for our younger pupils and invaluable preparation for the challenges of their next school.
Our school's curriculum is all the planned activities that we organise in order to promote learning and personal growth and development. We follow the national curriculum guidelines but we are not restricted by them. We seek the highest standards of attainment for all our children. We also value the breadth and balance of the curriculum we provide as well as the 'hidden curriculum' - what children learn from the way they are treated and expected to behave. We aim to foster creativity in our children, and to help them become independent learners. Above all we believe in making learning fun.
