We hope this finds you all safe, strong and well at the start of the Spring Break. We are living through extraordinary times and the goodness of the Manor Fields community is doing much to keep many of us feeling cared for and safe.

Staying well remains at the top of our ‘to do’ list and if you have the inclination to complete Home Learning, there are plenty of activities to be found on class pages. In addition, from 20th April for 14 weeks, the BBC is launching a series of daily, Bitesize television programmes to support learning while schools are closed.  Six daily shows will be produced for BBC’s iPlayer and Red Button services on weekdays. After the 20 minute show, children and families will be directed to the BBC’s website for an age-appropriate mix of videos, quizzes, podcasts and worksheets.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you would value some support, advice or reassurance. The well-being, safety and happiness of every member of our community remains, as ever, of paramount importance to the staff and governors.

Lastly, look out for the talented Julia Donaldson's  coronavirus posters which might help your child relate to a situation that can be hard to understand.

Message from the Chair of Governors

I hope this message finds all the Manor Fields families keeping safe and well.

Although the governors aren’t physically in the building, Ms McMorrin keeps us up to date. We are so proud of all the staff who are trying their very best to come up with creative ideas to help you with home learning. Your response in return has been amazing and I know you are feeding back to staff in many different ways. All the staff really appreciate hearing about the amazing activities you are undertaking with your children. Remember if you need help or advice, school staff will always be there to help. Working in partnership in these unprecedented times is truly the best way forward.

The Wiltshire Air Ambulance landed on our field on  Valentine's Day to attend to a nearby emergency. The children were excited to meet the crew and find out more about how all of our crisp packets support this vital, life-changing service. 

The noise of the propellers was astonishing and the helicopter made a special bow to the school as it took off. Such a memorable day and thankfully, the paramedics weren't needed on this occasion.

Safeguarding Statement

 At Manor Fields Primary School, the health, safety and well-being of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils.

 We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection and children are made aware that they can talk to any adult if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of abuse and they are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

The NSPCC have launched a new whistleblowing campaign so please visit our safeguarding pages in the About Us section for more information.

Did you know that O2 offer a free "Parental Control" service to help families to protect their children while they're online? They can enable you to restrict children's web access via their mobile to a limited number of sites which are suitable for children.
