The Orchard is a dedicated space in our school, designed especially for the Parent Hub. We welcome families to get out of their house and enjoy a nice cup of tea, for a chance to chat with other parents and Mrs Cooper. Parents can come alone or with their babies/ toddlers to socialise and play. Or they can come to ask questions or seek professional advice, support or guidance on anything at all.
It’s a friendly place where parents can socialise with other parents, toddlers can interact with other toddlers and play with our selection of toys and games. More importantly, the Parent Hub is a place that can also be used to ask any questions or voice any concerns regarding your child. You can also speak about any other personal matters with Mrs Cooper in complete confidence.
Parents and carers can use the parent hub as a safe space for confidential conversations with staff or to come into school and ask for support. We have an open door policy and are proud of the relationships we have built with parents and the community.
We also have a toddler group that runs out of the parent hub on a weekly basis.
