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 PSHE curriculum is underpinned by our Rights Respecting ethos and culture and encompasses Citizenship and Social Moral Spiritual and Cultural learning. This is delivered through the promotion of our STAR values (Success, Teamwork, Aspiration and Respect), Rights Respecting education, and learning values, and is taught in embedded and discrete lessons.
The School Council, circle time, class helpers and jobs, lunchtime helpers, playground buddies and Young Interpreters 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.
Year 2 visit to Newman Court Residential Complex
As part of our commitment to developing confident, responsible and respectful youngsters, we brought together a group of Year 2 children to visit Newman Court and meet some of the residents there. The children shared their biographies of Roald Dahl and chatted with the Newman Court residents about their childhoods. Adults and children then bonded over a shared love of art, with all concerned having an enjoyable and fun afternoon.
Hopefully this will be an experience than we can repeat in the not-so-distant future!
This term we will be celebrating children's work through our class assemblies. Children will be sharing what they feel proud of and will choose which STAR value they have achieved.
