At The Orchards Primary School, governors, staff, parents and children work as a team, building on success, in a happy, creative, high attaining environment where everyone feels valued.
We believe the role of governors is distinct from that of the management of the school. The prime role of governors is challenge and support the Headteacher and the Leadership Team in running and developing the school; this is sometimes referred to as being the “critical friend”. In doing so the Governors act collectively to secure the best possible performance by the academy with the one primary aim is to maximise the life chances of every one of the pupils in our care. Along with this comes a recognition of our role as a school at the heart of its local community.
We are justifiably very proud of the children in our school. In a good school, such as ours, parents take a great interest in their child’s learning and development. During the early years of primary education, academic, personal, social and creative skills are nurtured and developed.
Parents and Governors have key roles in helping The Orchards Primary School to maintain high standards for all our children both now, and for future generations.
