Orchard Primary School

Forecasted Heatwave

Due to the forcasted heatwave on Monday 18th July and Tuesday 19th July, the school has decided that all parents can collect children from 1.45pm. If for any reason you are unable to collect your children at this time, please could you inform the admin office on Monday 18th July in the morning as soon as possible.

Please ensure children have sun lotion applied. We also recommend children come with sun hats and bottles of water which they will be able to keep in class. All PE and ballet lessons for Monday and Tuesday have been cancelled to avoid pupils being exposed to the extreme heat and to avoid too much physical exertion as recommended by our local authority.


The last day of term is Wednesday 20th July, school will be closing early from 12noon. No lunch service will take place on this day due to the early closure.
