Welcome to Cherry Orchard Primary School
Welcome to Cherry Orchard Primary School’s website. We hope you will find information and photographs that will give you an insight into the rich, varied and inclusive opportunities we offer to all our pupils.
Our school lies in the heart of the Royal Borough of Greenwich close to Royal Greenwich Park, the Cutty Sark and the Maritime Museum. We ensure that our pupils gain a sense of what being a Londoner means through links with the National Gallery, The Heritage Centre and as a member of the London Schools Gold Club.
At Cherry Orchard, we aim to raise standards and achievement for all children through quality first teaching and a dyslexia friendly environment, in conjunction with understanding the whole child.
We believe that high standards of behaviour are achieved through working in partnership with parents and the community. Cultural diversity is valued and all members, both adults and children, are treated with respect. The early identification of individual needs, through ongoing monitoring and assessment, enables us to meet the needs of all learners.

Cherry Orchard Primary School awarded Gold Club status for exceptional educational achievements
Cherry Orchard Primary School in the Royal Borough of Greenwich has been awarded Gold Club status under a scheme set up by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson to recognise exceptional schools in the capital. The Gold Club is part of the Mayor's drive to boost standards and raise attainment for all schoolchildren wherever they live in the capital and regardless of background.
London’s schools continue to outperform the rest of the country with last year’s GCSE results showing the city as the top English region for the sixth consecutive year.
In highlighting and celebrating schools that are 'bucking the trend', especially those that have pupils with previously low attainment, the aim is to inspire even more schools in London to strive for similar academic success and offer them the chance to learn from the Gold Club schools.
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson commented: 'Congratulations to Cherry Orchard Primary School for its outstanding achievements and for the hard work of its pupils and teaching staff. London schools are going from strength to strength and our Gold Club members are testament to the fact all schools can aspire to attain excellence for all their pupils, whatever their circumstances. The Gold Club is a great platform for schools to share their bright ideas and approaches to enable every one of their pupils to achieve terrific results.”
113 schools have been awarded Gold Club status in 2015, the third year the scheme. They are being asked to share their good practice through seminars and hosting visits to their school so that other schools can learn from a range of approaches that have delivered success and achieved extraordinary performance of their pupils.
