Extended Services Policy (2021)
An Extended School is one which provides access to a range of services and activities, often beyond the school day, to help meet the needs of children, parents and the wider community.
At Orchard Primary School we believe in, and recognise the immense value of, working with all partner organisations to improve the life chances of all children and young people so that every member of the school community achieves success and self-fulfilment.
Through the extended schools programme, we deliver a consistent expectation-irrespective of gender, race and culture - that children are safe and healthy, enjoy their school life and achieve potential; and make positive contributions within the whole school community.
The Extended Schools Programme has a key role to play in children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development and endeavours to make life-changing differences to pupils in all aspects of their school and community life.
