Message from the Headteacher
In spite of the recent spell of balmy weather, we have had a wonderful term, enriched with our usual variety of exciting and diverse activities.
We have continued to offer fabulous sporting events for our pupils and most recently our Enterprise group have organised our fantastic Summer Fair. Under the wonderful direction of Miss Aylen, the pupils have managed to raise over £500 inviting over 75 guests into the school. This is the first time in many years that we have hosted such a fantastic event and it has demonstrated the wonderful links we have within our local community and parents and Carers. Everyone attending boasted of its success and I have assured everyone that this will now become and annual event. Hopefully we can raise even more money next year, which we hope we can add to our savings this year to finish our sensory garden for all the children to enjoy.
We have so much to be proud of having reached the finishing line of this year. The hard work of all staff and pupils is showing what a strong and effective community we are at The Orchard. We hope to take this opportunity to build support for the school through recruiting parents or Carers to join our Governing body as Parent Governors. This is a role that requires limited commitment and will secure opportunities to drive change and further progress for our wonderful school and its pupils. Please read the details included with your child’s report if you consider you may be able to join the Governing Body and do not hesitate to contact me if have any questions about the role.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful, relaxing and happy summer break and we all look forward to seeing you in September to embark on our next exciting and prosperous academic year.
