Welcome Message

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 strength is the 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.

Thursday’s Mother Tongue Languages Day was a superb way to start Term 4. It was wonderful to gather in mixed-ages groups to celebrate the diverse languages and cultures that we have within our school. We were very grateful to several Manor Fields families who kindly offered their support, alongside our talented Bilingual Assistants. The creativity of the staff made the day very successful and our special thanks go to Senora Flores, the architect of it all. The first HSA Quiz Night was also held on Thursday and thanks to Toni and Heather, our co-chairs, it was a great evening made even better by divergent thinkers a delicious chilli! 

On Tuesday and Wednesday this week, families are invited to meet with teaching staff to discuss their child’s achievements and well-being. We hope that every family will be able to join us and it is never too late to make an appointment.

Finally, on Thursday, Year 6 will have a wonderful opportunity to experience what it would be like to be an engineer, thanks to Steve Smith, the Group Managing Director @ Flowplant. This could be an important visit as research has shown that children have begun making assumptions about what type of people will enter different types of work while they are still in primary school. Incredibly, those attitudes are unlikely to change between the ages of seven and seventeen!

 Wiltshire Affordable Schools'  Strategy.

The principles of 'affordable schooling' are as follows and at Manor Fields, we strive to adhere to this roadmap to inclusivity:

  • Cost of living can affect us all. We may all experience life changing events at some point in our lives 
  • Schools are at the centre of communities - they can make a difference
  • Every day in every interaction, however small, there may be an opportunity to bring about positive change  for children
  • Diversity is the one thing we all have in common: we are better together than we are by ourselves.

At Manor Fields, we understand that the cost of supporting children through school can put pressure on household budgets so please follow this link for handy support and advice - click here

 The Salisbury Area Board has produced the attached leaflet in partnership with the city council, agencies and organisations in Salisbury to help with the cost of living crisis. - click here

Ofsted 2023 - 09.03.2023

Dear parents and carers,

 

We are delighted to share the outcome of our recent Ofsted Inspection.  Manor Fields remains a ‘good’ school  and we are pleased that the inspectors were able to witness the many strengths of our school.   They noted that our school is a “happy place where everyone is welcome”; that “pupils behave well in lessons and at social times”; and they “gain a strong understanding of right and wrong”.  

 

The team acknowledged that “leaders know the school’s strengths”. "The curriculum identifies precisely the knowledge that pupils should learn across all subjects" and “pupils learn a lot”. We are proud of our inclusive school so it is important that the focus upon equality and diversity was recognised. It enables our pupils to be “good citizens” who can “show care and empathy for others”.

 

It is significant that every parent who responded to Parent View would recommend the school to another parent. Staff and governors were very grateful for your support throughout the inspection: the good wishes and kindness of the community were generous and much welcomed.

 

We  shall continue to strive to be the best school that we can be so the inspectors’ suggested improvements will be embedded in future plans.

 

Jan Paterson.
