A Parent's Guide to Choosing a Special School


The Old St Justus Church

School Description

Pupils value being part of this small community. Warm relationships with adults help pupils to feel safe. The care and support that they receive from staff help them to re-engage with learning. Leaders make use of resources in the local community that help bring learning to life. However, the education that pupils receive is not good enough. This means that pupils do not learn well enough or close the gaps in their prior knowledge. Adults want pupils to be successful, but ongoing and frequent changes of staff have meant that, for most pupils, their learning is disjointed. Pupils join the school after struggling to cope in other schools. Often, their behaviour has been poor in the past. Clear routines at Manorway help pupils to conduct themselves well most of the time. When necessary, staff support pupils to reflect on and improve their behaviour, usually with a positive outcome. Pupils generally get on with each other, and bullying is not an issue. Pupils enjoy eating and playing together at lunchtime. Some need ongoing support to manage their interactions with others in a positive way. Some do not understand the difference between bullying and falling out.
