Headteacher News

2019-2020

Happy New Year everyone, I hope 2020 is a good year for all the families and staff in Manor. Term 3 has begun with setting our goal for the term. In assembly this week the children have chosen "We will persevere with everything and try our best " from our School Charter. This links well to our learning skills and our Career hub project. There are exciting opportunities ahead for the children such as an able writers conference, a year group visiting Sussex University and interesting visitors who will talk about their professions. Children will be exposed to different careers to show them the choices that could be available to them. We hope to raise aspirations and broaden horizons for all children.
