Manor Leas Junior Academy
Our vision is to create a school where every child achieves his/her potential through a relentless focus on high quality teaching and learning. Ensuring all children make good or better progress in reading, writing and mathematics is one of our core purposes. All staff consistently and energetically use the most effective methods for teaching these basic skills. The full potential of each child is explored and nurtured and pupils’ abilities and individual characteristics are matched to high quality teaching.
We ensure all children have equality of access to a rich, broad, inclusive curriculum, irrespective of their gender, race, faith or background.
The school will aspire for each child to develop socially, morally, physically, as well as academically in a happy, secure and exciting learning environment. Classrooms are vibrant, supportive and welcoming. They are full of children motivated by positive, well-paced and purposeful lessons. These lessons are delivered by staff that are passionate about the children’s success. We value the effort and hard work that success requires. We aim to instil a ‘growth mindset’ in all of our pupils. We strive to create learners who can reflect, question, wonder, think, connect, be self-aware and be determined. We aim to move towards this by providing opportunities for the children to build knowledge, make meaning and apply understanding through lessons with a strong context.
We strive for every parent/carer to be able to feel proud of their child’s achievements- and know exactly what these are. Communication is of utmost importance at Manor Leas Junior Academy. Clear guidance will be given about the best ways to support children with learning out of school.
All of this will be done because the children and their education will matter more than anything else. Every child will have the best possible start at Manor Leas Junior Academy and will be equipped with the tools they need for the future.
Through assemblies, PSHE and RE lessons we promote the values that we embody at Manor Leas Junior Academy. Each of these values is linked to one of our 4 key British Values. Please see the table below to find out which value we are focusing on this month.
At Manor Leas Junior Academy, we believe that our values are part of what makes us who we are: our DNA.
