Welcome to all our new children and families at Manor Green Primary, and welcome back to all of our returning children, their families and our new staff. We are all looking forward to another exciting and enriching year at school.

We know that moving to a new school, or a new class can be an anxious time for the children, but we work hard to make it a positive and fun experience. If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to speak to your child’s classteacher.

End of Day Pupil Collection

From September 2018 we will be opening the doors at the end of the school day for parent pickup at 3.00pm

Promoting Independence

We strive to help our children to be as independent as they are able here at Manor Green Primary and we would love your help. In school we are increasing the opportunities for pupils to do more things without persistent prompting or gestures. As part of this work, it would be really helpful if those of you who bring your child to school could encourage your child to enter the building unsupported and go to the classroom without you, carrying their own bag. We recognise that there will be children who still need support and that there may well be occasions when you do need to talk to a classteacher or staff member on arrival. We would like to trial this system from 17th September 2018.

School Meals

Children in Years R, 1 and 2 are entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals. Year groups are determined by your child’s date of birth as follows:

  • Year R—1/9/2013—31/8/2014
  • Year 1—1/9/2012—31/8/2013
  • Year 2—1/9/2011—31/8/2012

Please note this is separate from Free School Meal Eligibility which is applied for on an individual basis. If you think you may be entitled to Free School Meals please ask for a form from the school office.


Catherine and Charlotte (Mum and sister of Logan, Cedar Class) are doing a sponsored skydive on 29th September. All money raised will be donated to Manor Green Primary School. There is a sponsor form in the school office and a BT Fundraising page at https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/manorgreenskydive has also been set up if anyone would like to make a donation. We would liketo thank them for their support and wish them both the best of luck!

Happy Birthday to you
