Looking for a Nursery place for your 3 year old? Join us for some festive fun on our Nursery open morning from 10am-11am on Thursday 30th November and see how we can give your child the best start on their learning journey.

Welcome to our school 

Welcome to our school’s website for Orchard Fields Community School. Our school is a larger than average primary school and is situated in Banbury, North Oxfordshire.

We had an Ofsted inspection in 2014 and achieved the much coveted “Good” for our school. We are now working towards achieving outstanding.

We are very proud of our school and are very much at the heart of the local community. Our children, staff and parents are very welcoming to any visitors – new and old. We are a caring community and enjoy sharing our learning experiences with other schools locally.

At Orchard Fields we believe that all children have the right to the best possible education and we strive to ensure all of our pupils become the very best that they can be. We have high expectations of all pupils, regardless of their levels of ability or any other disadvantages they might have.

As the headteacher; I passionately believe in all children reaching their full potential in all areas of the curriculum. For me a child’s time in the primary phase acts as a springboard for their future successes and lifetime chances and aspirations. Therefore, the onus is very much on me and my team to work in partnership with parents and children to get it right first time.

I look forward to welcoming you and your children to our school .
