Introducing Our School
Our School Motto is: Respect, Believe, Achieve
Shared Vision: To create a forward thinking and committed team willing to undertake future educational developments to ensure all our pupils at Manor Field are given the best learning opportunities and experiences through social and emotional awareness, whilst striving for academic success through attainment and progress.
Mission Statement: At Manor Field Primary School we strive to create a learning environment which promotes respect, diversity and self awareness and equips all of our pupils with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values they will need to succeed in their future lives.
Manor Field is a through primary school for children from ages 4 to 11. Our school is divided into four Key Stages:
||Key Stage Leader: Mrs L Boakes
|Key Stage One
||Year One Classes
||Key Stage Leader: Mrs L Kirwan
||Year Two Classes
||Key Stage Leader: Miss V Stalker
|Lower Key Stage Two
||Years Three and Four Classes
||Key Stage Leader: Mrs D Hawkins
|Upper Key Stage Two
||Years Five and Six Classes
||Key Stage Leader: Mr J Esplen
We are a three form entry school, with three classes in Foundation Stage and Key Stage One and five mixed year classes in each of the Key Stage Two units - Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6.
The school has been cleverly designed to maximise all the benefits of a large school and yet retain a small school atmosphere, with the buildings arranged into seven separate units, each named by our school council after one of the continents of the world:
Antarctica: Foundation Stage
Africa: Year 1
Australia: Year 2
Europe: Years 3 & 4
Asia: Years 5 & 6
South America: Extended Childcare Facility
North America: Extended Childcare Facility
Each unit houses five classrooms arranged around a central area which accommodates a computer suite, enabling technology to be used as an integral aspect of learning. Each classroom is named after a city from the continent in which the classroom is located.
As indicated above, children in Years 1 & 2 each enjoy their own separate units, with Year 1 housed in 'Africa' and Year 2 in 'Australia'. Pupils in Key Stage 2 are divided into the two upper units, with Years 3 & 4 (Lower Key Stage 2) located in 'Europe' and Years 5 & 6 (Upper Key Stage 2) in 'Asia'. Separate cloakroom areas and toilet facilities serve each of the five units.
The Reception children start their time at Manor Field in a separate dedicated building (named 'Antarctica'). This enables children to feel 'cocooned' during their first year at school and, as the year progresses, they are gradually introduced to other areas around the school building.
Every class has a fully qualified teacher and a teaching assistant.
