Aims and Ethos

The ethos of the school is based on a core of values shared by the staff and clearly communicated to the children through teaching, discussion and example. These values are our guiding principles in setting the aims and objectives of our community and in evaluating our performance....

Our aims are to:

  • Cherish each child as an individual.
  • Actively promote Fundamental British Values.
  • Enthuse children with a love of learning and the desire to make the very most of their abilities and opportunities.
  • Offer a caring but challenging environment in which children are given the courage to learn from their mistakes and develop GRIT.
  • Encourage a sense of self-worth in each child.
  • Encourage respect for different life-styles, cultures and religions.
  • Promote the intellectual, social, mental, emotional, economic and physical development of pupils.
  • Ensure that the quality of the school environment and the overall atmosphere reflect the high standards expected of pupils.
  • Encourage a sense of individual responsibility towards others and the environment.
  • Create a community which reflects the ethical and moral framework of our Christian foundation and to promote the pupils’ spiritual and moral development.
  • Encourage pupils to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community, including an awareness of their social and economic responsibilities.
  • Make every child’s experience at The Manor as positive and happy as possible.
