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.

Friday’s Summer Fun Day was a superb, safe and happy success. Thanks to the commitment, thoughtfulness and energy of our community, approximately £2,400 was collected - a truly magnificent amount. Thank you for your tremendous donations and the sight of the Rainbow Raffle was a joy to behold! We must acknowledge, and be grateful for, Kate Milton’s unique and tireless role in bringing the plans to life. We must also thank Mrs Russell and Mr Parker for their willingness to assume roles of significant responsibility.
A couple of families have already emailed to share the following and it really does feel as if we are heading towards the light after the Covid years.
Just a very quick email to thank you and your staff for putting on such a fabulous day. So many happy, smiley faces. It was absolutely worth the wait and fantastic memories have been made. It’s such a privilege to be part of such a wonderful school and community. Well done to all involved.. looking forward to next year already!
What a wonderful day! Thank you to all the staff and wonderful HSA for a fantastic sports morning and fayre - it was a joy! M said at bedtime 'do I have to wait another whole year for the next one? I loved it all!'
The coming week is very busy as our Year 5s start their taster days at local secondary schools. October’s ‘application for secondary school’ deadline comes around very quickly so it is wise to start decision-making now.
Our new Reception children will join us for a Teddy Bears’ Picnic on Wednesday and a school dinner on Friday. Also on Friday, our oldest children will head off to Wales for a tremendous adventure and we hope that they have a superb and memorable time.
Thank you for another successful week. Year 4 multiplication tests got off to a great start and the Year 5 trip to the cathedral to observe the Peregrine Falcon chicks was a huge success. The children were brilliant (as always) in the Platform Rail assemblies and on Monday, thanks to Mrs Fisher, all of the Kingfishers are going on an exciting train trip.
Thank you for a great start to Term 6 and the week passed by in a blur of successes. It was lovely to meet next year’s parents and carers at the New Families’ Induction Evening and we shall look forward to welcoming them at a variety of events over the coming weeks.
In England, May and June are assessment months and the children are rising to the challenge with their typical enthusiasm and resilience! Our Year 1 phonics screening outcomes are superb and over the next fortnight, we shall be collating EYFS data, KS1 outcomes and the results of the Year 4 Multiplication tests. Year 6 tests are externally marked and those results will be returned to school in July.
We must thank Miss Dyke for engineering Thursday’s House Captain Elections. Those Year 2 and Year 6 children who were brave enough to stand for election were bold and thoughtful and it is heart-warming that all of our children were able to participate in the democratic process. We must applaud: Harriet; Lexi; James C; Lauren T; Jack S; Jack C; Olivia H; Sidney; Layla; Toby R-T; Gabriella R; Oliver P; Giulia; Zoe; Arabella; Lincoln; Maisie H; Sarina; Flora; Anna-Belle; Esma; Thomas B; Tristan; Aleshia; Halit; Luci; Myles; Darcey; Jack ; Jessica D; and Tegan.
Thanks to Mrs Fisher, Platform Rail will be working with every class next week as we strive to extend the children's understanding of how to stay safe wherever they are. Preparations for the Summer Fun Day are well-underway and we hope that after such a long time of lockdowns, that most families will be able to join us for this community event.
6.6.2022 – welcome to Term 6!
We sincerely hope that our community had a tremendous break after a very busy half term. Thank you so much for such a splendid end to May as the Paultons trip was such a success. We are so grateful for your feedback and the ‘thanks’ from our community have been generous and plentiful, including
“We just wanted to send an email to show our appreciation for all the hard work yourself and the staff have done over this last term. It was so wonderful to have activities and school trips this term it felt so much needed by all. Manor Fields is such a great school and you all do such an amazing job”
“…..care and compassion you all have for the children, coupled with such lovely energy and encouragement…..”
“Just a quick message to say a huge thank you to all at MFs for another 'fantastic' Paultons trip! They talked non-stop about the action-packed day and clearly had the best time so thank you for all the hard work that goes into organising and running such a trip”
The coming term looks as if it will be extraordinarily busy as we welcome the first, typical summer term for a very long time. Look out for HSA information about the coming Summer Fun Day, on 24th June, and various trips and visitors.
Between 6th and 24th June, children in Year 4 will be demonstrating their times tables skills in government tests. The following is a link to a helpful leaflet if you would like to know more….
