Ofsted 2013

Following our recent Ofsted inspection on the 9th and 10th October 2013 the Governing body are pleased to announce that the school has been graded as Good across all four areas of the inspection:


  • The achievement of pupils
  • Quality of teaching
  • The behaviour and safety of pupils
  • The leadership and management of the school

The keys comments were that:

  •   Pupils’ achievement in reading and writing is good. By the time they leave school in Year 2 the pupils’ attainment is above national average in literacy and in line in mathematics.
  •  Teaching is generally good which enables pupils to achieve well and ensures they are effectively prepared for their next stage in education.
  •  The behaviour of the pupils around school is good. They feel well looked after and cared for by all of the staff.
  •  Children in Reception make good progress from their different starting points. Over half of them reach a good level of development by the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
  •  The staff work very closely together and share a determination to improve pupil outcomes. The interim headteacher has provided good guidance and support to the staff and the governors. This has enabled the school to continue to move forwards in the period prior to the new headteacher taking over.
  •  The school teaches pupils to be kind to others and plans good opportunities for social, moral, spiritual and cultural development .



The inspector recognised the caring ethos, the excellent work of all the staff, the hard work of the pupils, and their progress and achievements throughout their time at Manor Church of England Infant School. Please see the link below for the report
