On behalf of everyone at Orchard C of E Primary School, we would like to extend a very warm welcome to all visitors to our school website.


We are a rural primary school in Broughton Astley, Leicestershire with around 200 amazing pupils who are well behaved, thoughtful and work really hard.


Our staff are extremely hard working and caring. We are concerned, not only for the children’s educational progress, but for their health and welfare; and we aim to give them as many opportunities in the wider curriculum as possible. All staff work to create a happy, caring environment where all children enjoy coming to school. Along with very supportive parents and governors we aim to give children at Orchard the best possible start to their educational journey and their primary school experience as a whole.
Orchard is a busy but friendly school, with a variety of activities and events going on throughout the year. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing uptodate information for prospective parents, current parents and the wider community. 
We hope you enjoy browsing our website, and that you find all the information you require. Should you have any further queries please feel free to contact the school by email or telephone.
