Admissions to our School

Manor Field School is a large primary school consisting of three classes within each year group and a published admission number (PAN) of 90.

'A small school feel with large school opportunities'

Despite our large size, we take great pride in knowing every child and work hard to achieve close and successful partnerships with all of our families. We regard Manor Field as 'a small school feel with large school opportunities' and have achieved this by dividing our physical environment into five different units where children can feel part of a smaller community.

Precedence is normally given to children living within the school's designated area and then to siblings and others living outside this area.

Our fun transition events make preschoolers feel well settled when they begin their reception year at Manor Field. 

Through the year, we hold termly transition events for pre-school children. These sessions aim to introduce children to Manor Field so that they can begin to feel comfortable and confident in the school environment and get to know key members of staff. We have found this makes a real difference to how quickly children settle in once they start with us the following September. 

During the term prior to admission, children are invited to spend some time in school with their teacher. During these visits, general information about the school is made available to parents who are able to observe the school in session and discuss our approach to teaching and learning. 

Parents seeking admission for a child to the school at ages between four and eleven should contact the local authority ‘Admissions Team’ at County Hall North (contact details above as per admission to Reception class) to discuss the availability of space and arrangements for joining the school.
