Dear Parents and Carers,
A very warm welcome back to school! I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are ready for a busy and exciting term ahead. A special welcome to new pupils, parents and staff to our school; I hope you will be very happy here.
I would like to say how pleased I am to have been asked to stay on as Acting Head of School. This is a very special school and one which I feel extremely privileged to lead.
As the Head of School, I will always make time to talk with parents, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to discuss any issues or ask questions. In my absence Miss Walker is available and always happy to help.
We send regular Newsletters. Please ensure you read them carefully, so you are clear about the events taking place this term. We’re also proud to launch our new website which has lots of fabulous photographs of your children working hard and playing with their friends. The school twitter page is @Orchards_School – please follow us for updates and news.
Finally, I would like to thank the Staff and Governors for their hard work and commitment to the school. I will continue to work closely with them, to ensure that the children receive the best possible education.
Ms. Helen O’Brien
Acting Head of School
