As part of our commitment to the Early Years Foundation Stage we see parents as partners in children’s learning. Parents are children's first educators and we know that a welcoming atmosphere with good communication between parents and the school is vital for children’s development. We value the feedback we receive from all our stakeholders. They are a vital tool for British Orchard Nursery to see what we are excelling in, to be able to provide feedback to the staff and so that we have the opportunity to develop the school and add to/alter things.
