Orchard Head Junior, Infant and Nursery School is a one and half entry school. The School aims to work in close partnership with the families of children in the school to ensure that every child, every day, learns and achieves. The School simply aims do this through the children.
The children in the school are at the very centre of school life. The school wants them to feel welcomed, safe, secure and part of the school family. They need to experience excitement, fun, enjoyment and challenge, so the school provides a broad and balanced curriculum to meet these needs. Children are expected to work hard and achieve the very best they are able to. The school wants the children to be able to communicate, respect and value all of those around them, regardless of age, background, culture and belief, so the school encourages and expects good manners, behaviour and conduct. The school wants the children to have good memories of their time at Orchard Head, but also to take away with them achievement, confidence, respect for and tolerance of others, and, above all, curiosity – the vital ingredient that turns ability and application into real achievement.
