about Brindishe Manor

Brindishe Manor is a community school where learning together is seen as a very important part of the education we offer. The school building is traditionally designed and dates from the turn of the century. Each group of children or class has its own classroom. Our site is fully accessible and most classes have direct access to outdoors. All classes have access to shared spaces around the building such as resources areas or learning zones, our two large hall spaces, our music and dance room and our outdoor learning spaces.

Though the building might look traditional, we use it in a modern way. Children will use different spaces in the school depending on the curriculum area or the type of learning in which they are involved. They are not always limited to one classroom under the direct supervision of their teacher. You might imagine this creates a lot of noise as children move around our varied and compact site. In fact it doesn’t – Brindishe Manor is a very quiet and calm school. Children learn in a calm and considerate way and behave responsibly.

Our flexible approach to learning encourages a feeling of commitment and belonging in our children. They are encouraged to see themselves as part of the whole school, they get to know all members of staff and all members of staff know them. Teaching and support staff work closely together sharing responsibility for making a very organised and educationally stimulating environment, ensuring that resources are well looked after and available. They also help all children to behave well and become successful learners.

Structure and organisation are important to us and we have clear procedures and policies for every aspect of school life. These are carefully applied to ensure that Brindishe Manor children achieve high standards, are well supported in their learning and develop a strong sense of community and good citizenship.
