Manor Primary School in Newham has achieved IQM Flagship School status.
A Friendly Inclusive School
Manor Primary School is a friendly, inclusive school that is always striving to ensure that the children are making as much progress as possible. This has led to the school being in the top 3% of schools in England for progress. The school is a Top Ten school in Newham for pupil progress. The school is a London Champion school for Virtual Reality.
Very Positive Parents
Parents whose children are in the new Inclusion class are very positive about the new initiative and feel that it has been of great benefit to their children, reporting that they are much calmer. They appreciate the wide range of training that is available for parents such as Signing sessions and Autism training. They speak very highly of the Inclusion Manager and say that she is very approachable and keen to support them.
The children in Attenborough class, the new Inclusion class, enjoyed the circle time game of Samson and Delilah with the majority of them taking part. Drawing pictures of themselves and people who help them was a calm activity for them which incorporated independence skills as they all collected their own equipment and did the task. The children were well-behaved and willing to show what they were doing.
The Children’s leadership team is very proactive and self-led with limited adult intervention. They are very articulate and showed pride in their efforts as they presented a PowerPoint presentation about the work that they have done, such as surveying all the children about the curriculum, school meals and their overall school experiences. They organise and lead fundraising events throughout the year.
Well Behaved Pupils
Children were very well behaved in the modern, purpose-built lunch hall, sitting in friendship groups. All children self-register so they don’t have to line up and come in year groups. This has made for a more sociable and natural atmosphere at lunchtime. There are a large array of vegetables and salad ingredients to accompany the main dish as well as fruit for dessert.
The school is a very active member of their IQM Cluster group and have attended two meetings this year, where they brought back ideas on initiatives that could be relevant to their school. The school is hosting the next IQM cluster day in October 2019.
Stimulating and Engaging Curriculum
The new Curriculum is stimulating and engages children as they learn and develop their skills through practical activities in the afternoon sessions.
The pupils continue to have access to an extensive range of after-school clubs and extracurricular activities, as well as a breakfast club and afterschool clubs that are open from 7.45 am to 5.45 pm in the evening.
