We are very proud to announce that Manor Green Primary has been selected to become a National Teaching School. Teaching Schools take a leading role in recruiting and training new entrants to the profession. They identify and develop leadership potential; they provide support for other schools, and work with schools across their alliance to raise standards of teaching. We are one of 54 schools in England to be granted teaching school status in the latest round.

Introduced in 2011, Teaching Schools are all rated as “outstanding”. They work with partner schools in an alliance to ensure high quality school-led initial teacher training and professional development opportunities for teachers at all stages of their career. They raise standards through supporting other schools, engage in research and development, and ensure that the most talented school leaders are spotted and supported to become successful headteachers.

Nicole Goodman, the ASC Behaviour Specialist, at Manor Green College will be holding a free one day Parent/Carer Social Narratives course on Saturday 23rd April from 9am to 3:30pm. at Manor Green College. Please contact the college for more information.

The Speech and Language Therapy Team will be having a coffee morning for parents and carers in the courtyard at school on Wednesday 20th April from 9am. If you would like to attend please can you complete the reply slip that came home earlier this week or put a note in the home school book so that they can gauge numbers.
