Message from the Headteacher


As we move into Autumn, we look forward to the changing seasons and  the celebrations ahead for the coming festive term. But before we get there we have the opportunity to reflect on previous term. 


The Orchard is now a bigger community with over 90 pupils on our school roll. This led to greater engagement by our community in decisions that involve them. You will read later about our Student Council and their 

decision making.But I would like to take this opportunity to invite , as parents & carers to have a positive impact on our school. We are continuing to seek any parents or carers that have an interest in supporting our school through governance. We still require parent governors and would love to encourage any of you whom have a few hours free each term to join us in the leadership of our school. I hope some of you may be interested and I am happy to discuss this in more detail should any of you feel you take on the role.


I hope to hear from some of you in the new term, but in the meantime, I hope you all have a happy, safe time during the half term. 


Mrs Annabel Lilley – Headteacher.
