It is with great pleasure that I offer a warm welcome to you on behalf of the Governors, Staff and pupils of our school.
I hope the information on this site will prove both interesting and useful.
At Manifold CE Primary School all our children are very special. In short, every child matters. High esteem is encouraged, high expectations, standards and values are fostered and progress and achievement are positively monitored and celebrated. We believe that all children can achieve and that it is our duty to help them do so.
Our school has many qualities, the most important of these being a dedicated and caring staff, who share a wealth of experience.
In addition we have excellent facilities and enjoy support from the community at large.
These factors help us to provide the highest standards of education for your child. In partnership with parents, we strive to ensure continued academic success and develop personal qualities in pupils of which we can be proud.
Our curriculum, whilst complying with the National Curriculum, is skills based, focusing on teaching children to be outstanding learners, providing exciting and challenging learning opportunities steeped in real life experiences. We seek to provide every opportunity for children to apply Literacy, Numeracy and Information Technology skills across their learning.
We want all children to achieve the highest possible standards and make maximum progress in relation to their prior learning.
We want children to enjoy acquiring and using knowledge and skills, to question and explore, to acquire positive attitudes, behaviour and personal beliefs and gain independence in order to become life long learners. We aim to foster respect for religious and moral values.
Cultural diversity is promoted as is the ability to reflect upon the world, expressing thoughts and feelings.
We want all children to acquire a sense of self worth, belonging and pride.
As you browse through our website there may be questions you wish to raise. Whilst I hope you find this information useful, there can be no substitute for a personal visit and you are warmly invited to view the school, by prior arrangement.
I look forward to meeting you and ultimately providing the very best education for your child.
