Welcome to the Manor Lodge School Virtual Open Day.
My passion ‘that every child deserves a childhood’ underpins everything I believe in. Children have a right to happiness and that can only happen if we embrace childhood and allow our children freedom to discover who they are rather than launching them on a predestined route to adulthood.
I believe that the academic and pastoral curriculum work in harmony with each other. The academic curriculum is designed to inspire children, guide their inquisitive minds and equip them for the rigours needed for academic success.
Then there is the pastoral curriculum whose very essence is at the very heart of what makes children who they are. The curriculum promotes creativity, a curiosity and wonder. It values independent thinking, where communication and collaboration underpin interactions and where resilience and well-being are encouraged and fostered.
At Manor Lodge we are creating a new ‘heart’ of the School to fostor an inspirational and stimulating learning environment.
We are modernising our teaching ideology to champion STEAM, Science, Technology Engineering, Art and Maths. We aim to equip children for the demands of the changing world. Both boys and girls thrive on the challenges that these subjects promote.
