Scotch Orchard Primary School

About our School

We are a happy school at the heart of our community. At Scotch Orchard, we want our children to develop a sense of belonging to our school. This is because we understand that children need to feel a secure sense of belonging in order to feel safe. It is only when children feel that they belong and that they are safe, that they can develop belief in themselves, thereby allowing them to take risks and thus, to learn.

This supports our children to achieve their potential, across the wide and varied curriculum that our school provides, with opportunities to develop their cultural capital built into the fabric of their time at our school. Our children develop their knowledge and understanding of the world in which we live, and the part they can play in the world, throughout their time at Scotch Orchard. We encourage children’s curiosity and help them to ask and answer questions, so that they continually deepen their knowledge and understanding.  We recognise the vital importance of supporting and developing children’s well-being and know that children need to have excellent physical and mental health if they are going to succeed academically.

At Scotch Orchard we understand that safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility.  Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children.  In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals in school make sure their approach is child-centred, considering at all times what is in the best interests of the child.  Staff working with children are advised to maintain an attitude of ‘it could happen here’.  The designated safeguarding lead at Scotch Orchard is the Head of School, Dr Warrack.  There are a number of deputy safeguarding leads and these include the Assistant Head Teachers.

We have one class for each year group.
