A note from the Head and Deputy
A Word From The Headteacher
Welcome to our school.
I have been the Headteacher of our lovely school for 16 years now, but it seems only yesterday that I took up the post. We have 130 pupils and cater for pupils age 3- 11. Crow Orchard is everything a primary school should be and more. We are a family and our small classes make it easier to give every child the love and support they need. Throughout their journey with us, we instil in the children the confidence to achieve their full potential, so they can do whatever they want in the future and have faith in themselves to follow their dreams.
About me………I have been teaching for a very long time! I have taught in 7 schools, two of which were aboard in Geneva and Singapore, so I certainly have experienced very different places. I have a lovely daughter who is all grown up now and has given me my two adorable grandsons.
I am so proud to have been part of the development of Crow Orchard School. I love my job and have amazing pupils, staff, parents and Governors who all work together to get the job done.
Our teachers are exceptional, providing quality, tailored learning for each and every child and our results are testament to that.
We believe that schools are stronger when they work together and are part of a very strong cluster called SHARES, who strive to achieve excellence across the town. As a member of the SHARES Sports Association all our children access high quality sports coaching and competitions to promote a love of sport and a healthy lifestyle.
We are proud to be part of a SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) , knowing that we can support the future of teaching – this is an exceptional place to learn, for everyone!
Our Governing Body is incredibly supportive in all that we do and challenge and support leaders to ensure we maintain high standards and move forward as an organisation.
We were last inspected by OFSTED in December 2017 and we were very proud to be graded as ‘Good’ in all areas.
Our door is always open; please call by, meet us and have a tour of our fantastic school. You can trust us to look after your child in an environment where laughter and learning go hand in hand.
A Word From The Deputy
Hello and Welcome to Crow Orchard School
My name is Mrs Heath and quite a lot of parents and children already know me! I have been a teacher at Crow Orchard for 27 years and now have the privilege of being the Deputy Head. I love working here and can't wait to get stuck in to my new role. I'm sure I will see lots of parents in passing and I am always available if you need anything. I am also the teacher in Year 3 so will be meeting lots of children particularly in the juniors.
I love being part of Crow Orchard and can't wait to help make it better and better!!
