At Cherry Orchard we aim to raise standards and achievement for all children through good and outstanding teaching and a dyslexia friendly environment. We believe that high standards of behaviour are achieved through working in partnership with parents and the community. Cultural diversity is valued and all members, both adults and children, are treated with respect. The early identification of individual needs, through on-going monitoring and assessment, enables us to meet the needs of all learners. In conjunction with Every Child Matters principles pupil standards are at the forefront of all we do. In a safe, healthy and stimulating environment, children are expected to achieve their full potential in order that they can gain economic well-being and make a positive contribution to society.
