Orchard Primary School

Contacting Teachers

At Orchard we believe in working as a team and this includes having a strong partnership with parents. We aim to secure the best outcomes for our pupils and this can only be achieved through parents being involved in their children’s learning.

One of the ways in which we do this is our Open Door policy – making sure we make ourselves available to deal with any queries that parents have on a day-to-day basis.


However, we ask for parental understanding that first thing in the morning is not the best time to talk to the Class Teachers, as they are busy preparing for the day ahead and settling the children.

Home time is also not an appropriate time for parents to approach the Class Teacher. If the Class Teacher needs to speak to you urgently, they will initiate a meeting.


If you need to contact Class Teachers regarding a meeting about your child or need advice, you have 2 options.

  • You can go into or phone the school office to set up an appointment at a mutually agreeable time.
  • You can contact Class Teachers via the following email addresses:

Reception: reception@orchardprimaryschool.com

Year 1 staff: year1@orchardprimaryschool.com

Year 2 staff: year2@orchardprimaryschool.com

Year 3 staff: year3@orchardprimaryschool.com

Year 4 staff: year4@orchardprimaryschool.com

Year 5 staff: year5@orchardprimaryschool.com

Year 6 staff: year6@orchardprimaryschool.com


Class Teachers will aim to reply or phone you as soon as possible during working hours.


JazakAllah/Thanks for your cooperation.
