Welcome to The Orchards Primary Academy website!

It is with great pleasure that I say hello to you on behalf of the Pupils, Staff and Governors of the Orchards Primary Academy, a place where children are supported to become confident, creative and caring members of our community. We have the highest expectations of our children and work as a team to offer the widest range of opportunities. High self-esteem is encouraged, high expectations, standards and values are demanded and progress and achievement are positively monitored and celebrated. We believe that all children can achieve and rise to the expectation that we hold for them and that no child should ever be left behind. Our creative, topic based curriculum gives exciting and memorable experiences focusing on teaching children to be outstanding learners, providing exciting and challenging learning opportunities whilst steeped in real life experiences.


We are proud members of the UWMAT, a family of schools and a supportive network of educational expertise. We have so much to offer and so much that we can learn from others as we progress on our journey to being an outstanding school! Our school ethos and values underpin all aspects of our school life, and are on display throughout the school and curriculum. I hope this website will give a snapshot of what we offer at The Orchards Primary Academy, but why not make an appointment to come and look around the school. Whether you are a prospective parent, a future member of staff or a member of our school community, we would love to meet you!

Mrs H Carrier

Head Teacher
