Welcome & Our Staff

Dear Parents and Families,


Welcome to Manor Field Infant School, where our children are the most important people here.


There are five groups of people who work together to make our school a special place. Firstly, the children - they are lively, enthusiastic, caring, funny and sensitive people who each day remind us why the rest of us are here. Next, the staff - teachers, teaching assistants, dinner ladies, admin staff, caretaking and cleaning staff, kitchen staff, all dedicated to making the school the very best place to work and learn. Thirdly, the governors - who are a largely unseen group of people who work extremely hard on behalf of the school to ensure that all legal requirements are met and that the school is properly run and have a vital strategic role. Fourthly, our volunteers - some of them parents, some of them friends of the school who give their time generously to support the children and staff. Finally our key group is you our parents. I cannot overstate how important we believe your role is and how important your voice is in running our school.


This is a school where we hope that you and your child will feel valued and supported. We believe that to help the children learn, we must be learners too - we want to learn from you about your child and we hope that you will become involved in your child's learning both at home and at school.


We are always looking for ways to improve, and we invite you to join us in the learning journey.


I hope you find our website informative and a useful gateway to our school. Please especially read our Vision Statement - it is a description of the set of beliefs that each staff member holds  and should clearly indicate what we think is important in our school.


We look forward to meeting you and to working with you to achieve the very best for your child.


Best wishes,


Susie Pietrzak
