Headteachers's Message

Welcome to The Orion - a Message from Mr Flathers


The Orion Primary is part of the Gold Star Federation. Together with Goldbeaters we serve a community of around 1500 children. We believe that life for our pupils should be sunny, happy and incredibly special.


Our way of learning is unique and has a name: Positive Learning Power. This simple method enables children to be able to say:


  • I am happy and a success
  • I feel very positive and confident about myself and with friends
  • I love learning and make fast progress


Staff really make things happen and they are dedicated to helping children in three ways, they:


  • Champion pupils by going the extra mile for them
  • Teach great lessons
  • Coach and nurture every child’s talents.


Life here is NOT just a series of lessons. Our very special environment and weekly events play a key part in giving children endless learning opportunities. Pupils develop a passion for life and a level of happiness that accelerates their learning. Here is a quick flavour of life in our world:


  • GO FEST an arts and cultural 6 week festival
  • Word Up an 8 week literacy festival.
  • Theatre school
  • Sports academy
  • Days like, Smile Day, World Peace Day


If you would like a taste of our schools then you can see us on YouTube where we have around a 100 films, many of which were made to help keep everyone positive during the Covid period. 


We also run a charity to help the community when the need arises. This is called the "Bright Yellow Thinkers Project".


Our children are amazing!  My staff and I are proud to serve them and their families by providing a very special primary school experience.


We are here them and for you!


Mr F
