Welcome to Orchard Primary
All hands together in harmony at Orchard Primary School

As we move towards the Easter break, we have a full timetable of activities for the children and families at Orchard Primary School.

The children have had a really busy start to this half-term, with a Space Day, World Book Day, and Year 4 have had an Anglo Saxon Day. Several classes had great fun making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday – Well done to the brave teachers and helpers, as pancakes for 30 little people is a mammoth task! The Year 4’s have adopted a chef, and have had weekly sessions learning to make some meals – very delicious too.

Upcoming trips include a visit to the Zoo, the Aquarium, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum. Trips are an important part of the children’s education, as well as making the curriculum fun and accessible. Year 4 will be visiting Wide Horizons for some outdoor education. We will be holding a Science and Technology day at school, with visitors from a range of Science and Technology backgrounds coming in to work with the children.

Parents and children have attended Parents evenings to discuss the mid-year reports and set targets for the rest of the year. These evenings were well attended, and Parents were pleased with the new half-year reports.

Coming up we will be celebrating Red Nose day on 24th March, and enjoying a fun-filled day.

Orchard Primary School has now entered the modern age, and has a Facebook and Twitter account. You can now follow us on: Facebook – Orchard Primary School and Twitter is @Orchard Sidcup. We will use these accounts to send out reminders about events and trips.

Enjoy the longer brighter days!

Aspire to achieve            Believe in yourself            Care for each other


As the Internet becomes ever more accessible, it is important to remember about using the Internet safely. The term e-safety is used to cover this area.

Good practices include, keeping your username and password safe and not sharing it with others, as well as, to tell a trusted adult if someone or something has made you uncomfortable or worried whilst on the Internet.

The NCA’s CEOP Command is here to help children and young people. They are here to help, if you are a young person and you or your friend have been forced or tricked into doing something online, or in the real world.

They also have advice and links to support for other online problems young people might face, such as cyberbullying and hacking. Click here to visit their site >>
