Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills inspected Manor Infant School in March 2011. This report can be viewed here. The Ofsted inspector wrote that:
Manor Infant is an outstanding school. All pupils are highly valued and have equal access to the activities provided. Outstanding care, guidance and support and a highly effective curriculum make a considerable contribution to pupils’ personal development. Pupils are extremely courteous, friendly and relate very well to adults and to their peers. Their behaviour in lessons and around the school is often exemplary.
The school engages very successfully with parents and carers, who are delighted with the care and education provided for their children. Typical comments included, ‘very impressed with the school’ and ‘very happy with all aspects of Manor Infant School’. Pupils achieve well because of consistently good teaching. Positive steps have been taken to improve attendance, which is now above average.
School self evaluation is accurate helping us judge our successes. Currently we are supporting developing community cohesion in order to share good practice within our local area and we are part of the steering group developing local partnerships in our area.
