Together we...Work in partnership
At the Manor we work with our local community, for example, members of the elderly community enjoy Christmas lunch with the children; the local PC talks to the children about road safety and local historians have spoken about the coalmining heritage of Coalpit Heath.
Our facilities are used extensively by community groups: the football club, Fitquest and Odyssey dance club are just a few. We take advantage of these links, for example through coaching opportunities and health workshops which enhance the health and wellbeing of our community.
We involve various community organisations in different aspects of our school life: for example, DHL supply volunteers to help with school projects and reading, and young people from Paul’s Place visit weekly to work with our pupils.
The teachers also work with colleagues from other local primary schools and there is a carefully managed transition to secondary school for children in Year 6.
