Policies and Procedures


Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our children are discussed with parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

There is no requirement to wear uniform to The Orchard but some some families prefer to do so.
The uniform is a high quality polo-shirt and sweatshirt/cardigan which is personalised with the Orchard emblem. It is durable and easy to wash.
Wearing a uniform also helps with preparation for Primary School, and makes those busy mornings a bit easier to manage!
We do have a limited selection of uniform here ready for purchase so please do ask one of our staff if you would like to purchase uniform items.

Alternatively, if you would like to order uniform please order direct from our supplier using the link below.




“The pre-school provides a colourful, stimulating and motivating learning environment for children to learn and develop.” “Children benefit greatly from the close attention they receive from staff.”
