At Manor Field Infant School we believe in nurturing children to become confident, successful, collaborative, responsible and respectful individuals with high aspirations and a love of learning. We understand that children’s health, well-being and emotional and social understanding are at the heart of their ability to develop into successful learners.
Our children are given a voice as Little Stars in the School Council, while they take on responsibilities for their environment and each other as Headteacher Helpers, Playground Pals and Young Interpreters. These all form an important part of the culture of our school with the children at the centre, driving their own learning and experiencing democracy and community. Our British Values and School Values enable children to become global citizens who embrace, value and celebrate challenge and diversity.
Our PSHE curriculum is underpinned by our Rights Respecting ethos and culture and encompasses Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural (SMSC) learning and Citizenship. This is delivered through the promotion of our STAR values (Success, Teamwork, Aspiration and Respect), linked to Rights Respecting Education, and is taught via the evidence-based Jigsaw© programme from EYFS through to Year 2.
We are happy to introduce our Jigsaw friends below (from left to right) -

Year 2 visit to Newman Court Residential Complex
As part of our commitment to developing confident, responsible and respectful young people, on Wednesday 20th November a group of Year 2 children from Manor Field Infant School visited Newman Court Residential Complex.
The children took examples of their art work to share (collages based upon Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night and went prepared with questions to ask the residents.
All involved had a wonderful time, making and launching paper airplanes across the lounge, talking about the complex' garden, and creating paper snowflakes in preparation for Christmas!
This trip will be repeated on December 4th and we hope to take the children carol singing closer to Christmas too!
