Welcome to our school
Welcome to our school website. Our school, Orchard Fields Community School and Nursery, is situated in Banbury, North Oxfordshire.
We were very pleased to welcome the children back to school this term. Due to the current Covid restrictions we are not able to currently offer our Early Bird's Breakfast Club or Orchard Wrap Around Care. The free after school clubs are also not available.
Parents are reminded that no one should attend school if they have symptoms of COVID-19 such as a new continuous cough, a high temperature or a loss of taste or smell. If needed, a test can be obtained from: nhs.uk/coronavirus
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 all visitors. We are a caring community and enjoy sharing our learning experiences with other schools locally.
We are very pleased that our Early Years classes (Nursery and Reception) have been judged outstanding following an inspection in February of this year following on from a previous Outstanding review in October of last year. Please click here to read the report.
The children are enjoying the many activities and learning opportunities planned for this term. 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.
As Headteacher; I passionately believe in all children reaching their full potential in all areas of the curriculum. For me a child’s time here is the springboard for their future successes and lifetime chances and aspirations.
I look forward to welcoming you and your children in school.
