School Description

Manby Lodge Infant School is smaller than the average-size infant school, although pupil numbers have varied considerably over the last three years. The proportion of pupils who join or leave partway through the year is above average. There are now two full-time Reception classes, three Year 1 classes and three Year 2 classes. Pupils come from predominantly White British and Other White backgrounds, though the proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is well-above average. At present, 13 children are in the early stages of learning English. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is below average. There are fewerthan-average numbers of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities; the largest group of these pupils are on the autistic spectrum. The school has gained the Healthy School and Artsmark awards.The before-school club and holiday childcare scheme are not managed by the governing body and, therefore, did not form part of this inspection.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

“Wonderful Weybridge Infant School”
This is a wonderful infant school and my child is very happy here (now in her final year). The school has 3 form entry and children are here for 3 years (reception to year 2) then most children go onto Cleves (Junior school Weybridge/Walton border). What’s good? The buildings are mainly new (built about 3 years ago) and the outside ball court has just been re- done (summer 2019). There is an active PTA - the friends of Manby Lodge - who support the school through various fund raising events. The staff are very caring and cater to the needs of each child as an individual. Good behaviour is encouraged rather than bad behaviour being punished. (Good behaviour rewarded with rainbow stickers, which the children love) The best thing for us is that they are teaching our daughter HOW to learn - encouraging key behaviours such as resilience and perseverance as well as resourcefulness. What’s not so good? Like most schools in the area, traffic at pick up/ drop is bad and parking can be tricky. Better to walk if you can. The outdoor space is basically the playground with some wooded areas - though the cricket pitch is used for sports day. For parents with more than one child, it can be tricky if you have to do the Manby & Cleves double drop/pick up. In summary, we are so glad we chose this school for our child. It’s been the best start to her education we could ask for. All the schools in Weybridge are great, but having a dedicated infant school certainly helps to tailor the education experience to those very early years of learning and school life and to make sure it's enjoyable and gives her the foundation she needs. Weybridge Mum
Unfortunately I cannot give this school a good rating. My daughter loved reception year, however year 1 & 2 my daughter became unhappy. The head teacher told my daughter she was not to wear a bow in her hair as they are not allowed. This used to be a lovely school but I would be far from recommending this school to anybody now I’m afraid.
