A key aspect at Manor Lodge is our strong sense of community. This is encouraged through allowing children a say about what is going on in their school from voting for School Council to being on the Eco Team.
Pupils are allowed into classrooms from 8.20am but the school opens at 8.00am with an Early Birds Club, held in the hall. This is to enable parents to drop off their children at a more suitable time for them, or to accommodate siblings of pupils required for clubs or instrumental music lessons from 8.00am. The Early Birds Club is supervised by a teacher and a teaching assistant.
