We are a three form entry school, with two classes in Foundation Stage, five classes in Key Stage One and ten classes in Lower as well as Upper Key Stage Two.
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:
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 also has a set of Chrome Books that children use as part of their 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 mixed 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'. They also have their own large playground that is separate from the other year groups. As the year progresses, they are gradually introduced to other areas around the school building.
