On behalf of the governors, staff and pupils, we are delighted to introduce you to our school and this website aims to provide you with some insight into learning at Manor Fields.
We are committed to ensuring that every child is safe, healthy and happy and that they will have the confidence, skills and opportunities to contribute and achieve. Every child deserves the best possible start to their education and we foster an enthusiasm for learning that aims to provide a solid foundation for the rest of each child’s school career and beyond.
At Manor Fields, our major strength is the highly skilled and dedicated team of professionals and volunteers who serve our school and its community. We aim to challenge and inspire through excellent provision in a superb learning environment.
Through our ‘open door’ policy, we make ourselves accessible to provide support and guidance. We believe that working in partnership with families is one of the most important determinants of the success of any child. Therefore, we strive to bring the two worlds of home and school together to form one whole learning experience with your child at the centre.
We are always delighted to receive visitors, so do take the time to come and see us. Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make and we are happy to share the high quality of learning opportunities that characterise our school.
We look forward to welcoming you and your child to Manor Fields Primary School.

If your child is experiencing a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss/change to their sense of smell or taste, please keep them at home. Do call us if you want advice about testing.
Monday 17th is a significant day in the country’s recovery from Covid. We are adjusting some of our practices to reflect the new freedoms and the changes will be implemented from Tuesday 18th May, following Monday’s government announcement.
Last week’s newsletter highlighted those things that will remain unchanged and those that we intend to implement. We have been able to keep every bubble open since the start of the pandemic and this is testament to our community’s collective efforts to keep each other safe. We are very grateful for your ongoing willingness to adhere to plans and we look forward to the next milestone with anticipation.
Short films to help children and young people manage their mental health
To mark Mental Health Awareness Week, which begins on 10 May, Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has worked with Create Studios in Swindon to produce a series of short films to help children and young people manage their mental health at home.
The films are powerful, engaging and full of practical advice. They feature mental health practitioners Milly and Olivia sharing tips and strategies for families to have constructive conversations about difficult feelings. Recent research shows that children and young people in the local area would prefer to receive mental health support primarily from their family and friends, and that they would only reach out to professionals as a last resort.
The films also follow several individuals (played by actors) from different backgrounds, including Arthur who has Asperger’s and whose mental health condition was significantly exacerbated during the pandemic.
You can find out more about the campaign on the CCG website, and their YouTube channel. Please do share the films with anyone who works with children, young people and their families.
Lastly, thank you for your never-ending support and if you do get a moment, do participate in the Big Ask https://www.childrenscommissioner.gov.uk/thebigask/ It is a privilege to have the opportunity to shape future provision for our precious children.
Wiltshire’s Wellbeing Hub providing support to those who need it
The Wiltshire Wellbeing Hub is available to anyone who is struggling during this difficult time – and will now be available on Saturdays.
The hub can help and provide support to those who perhaps don’t have a network around them, and also signpost them to where additional help is available in their local area. Hundreds of community groups, run by volunteers, are still set up across the county, providing invaluable assistance to those who need it.
