Cherry Orchard First School and Caterpillars Pre-School

"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"


On behalf of the staff and governors of Cherry Orchard First School I am delighted to welcome you to our website.


Cherry Orchard is a special place where we are dedicated to providing an exciting and challenging curriculum for all the children within a safe, stimulating and well-resourced environment.  We have a shared vision throughout the school that every child deserves to be successful and fulfil their true potential.  We recognise that all children have talents and abilities to celebrate, and part of our role is to help them discover and develop these.


We encourage a strong community spirit where we show consideration and respect for each other; understand differences and uphold kind, well-mannered behaviour. 


We are proud of our dedicated team of staff who develop the children's lively and enquiring minds by providing a rich, creative and varied curriculum, equipping the children with the personal and technological skills to enjoy learning and achieve success in all areas of their school life.  In partnership with families, we develop the children's self-esteem and self-belief giving them confidence in themselves and aspirations for the future, enabling every child to flourish.


We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and are able to find the information you need.  If you would like to come and meet us and find out more, please contact the school office.


We look forward to meeting you.


Best wishes
