Manor House is our alternative provision. It is a provision for all schools within our MAT. It supports pupils with SEMH needs, and in particular, those at risk of permanent exclusion.
The teaching in Manor House is tailored to individual needs and the progress children make is measured in small, specific steps, with a strong focus on PSHE. The children follow a curriculum that meets their needs and secures the foundations of learning across the curriculum. Each day is modelled on a tight structure and routine, so that children build security and stability. We also have outside space which supports teaching in all areas of the curriculum. Children have lessons by specialist teachers in art, music and PE. Speech and language sessions are provided by Jo Baxter, our speech and language therapist, and these sessions develop a wide range of communication needs.
Manor House is overseen by our CEO, Ceri Jones and also in conjunction with Faye Welsher, our Family Liaison Officer/ Safeguarding Lead and Headteacher, Victoria Gooding. The planning in Manor House is supported by our SENCo team. Megan Lill is our Manor House teacher. Our Apprentice behaviour LSAs, who specialise in behaviour, also complete training within Manor House.
Manor House follow a bespoke curriculum, tailored to the needs of individual children, specifically focussing on their SEMH needs. For English and maths, this is designed to meet the individual needs of each child and break down barriers to learning. The curriculum is pitched according to the needs of the pupils.
Each child is on an individual journey and will transition back into mainstream, where appropriate, on a timetable designed to ensure success.
