Children return to school - Wednesday 3rd September
- Friday 23rd July
We have reached the end of another very successful year at Manor. The Leavers’ Assembly reflected the achievements across the school, as well as recognising the excellent achievements of the Year 6s who are leaving us to go on to secondary school.
We are saying farewell to some staff who are moving on which is a sad part of the end of the year. Michelle Wilson
Mrs Wilson has worked at Manor for 15 years, and as Deputy Head for the last 7 years. She has worked really hard with children, parents and staff to ensure the very best for the children at the school, and I think all that have been at Manor in this time will remember and appreciate all that she has done.
Her organisational skills are amazing, and she has kept everyone on track – children and staff! She will certainly be remembered for all the school events that she has organised and run. She has supported and developed staff, and helped to ensure that they are in the best position to teach the children. She has also worked tirelessly to provide a wide range of exciting learning experiences for the children.
Michelle leaves us to take over a school in Surrey as Headteacher. She will be an excellent Head, and her new school are extremely lucky to have her. I would like to thank her for all her hard work, and her support over the past 15 years, and wish her and the family all the best in their new adventure! William Neighbour
Mr Neighbour has worked here for 5 years as Inclusion Manager. He has worked closely with staff and parents in order to ensure that children are well supported and are receiving all that they need to achieve well. Some of you will know him well, and will know how focused he has been on making sure that as a school we are able to best provide for the children.
William leaves to start as Deputy Head at a school in Reading which is much closer to where he lives. I know that he will embrace the challenges that this new role brings and will be as much of an asset to them as he has been to Manor. I would like to thank him for all his hard work, and wish him all the best in his new job! Khalil Patel
Mr Patel has worked with us for a year, supporting the learning in Class 3. This is a role he has embraced and has worked well with the children to ensure that they are focused and learning well. I know that the parents of the children that he has particularly worked with greatly appreciate the time and effort he has put into supporting them.
Khalil is leaving us to take on new challenges, and we wish him all the best in this. I would like to thank him for all his hard work this year. Sharon Jocelyn
Ms Sharon has worked with us this year in the main reception, and provided a very welcoming and friendly introduction for visitors to the school. She very quickly got to know both children and parents, and I know that you have found her to be helpful and efficient.
Sharon is leaving us to pursue new challenges elsewhere. I know that she will embrace these and do well wherever she goes. I would like to thank her for all her hard work and to wish her all the best! Kate Overy
Ms Overy has worked with us for a year, supporting the learning in Year 2. She has worked really well with the staff and the children, helping to make sure that all the children are well supported and are progressing well. The staff in Y2 have greatly appreciated her help and support, and the effort that she has put in.
We wish Kate all the best as she moves on! Kisuma Begum
Ms Begum has worked in Class 11 every Friday this year, supporting the learning for the children. She has worked really well with the staff and children, and has been focused on ensuring that the children she supports are making good progress.
We wish Kisuma all the best as she moves on! Tahira Aamir & Aisha Sarwar
Ms Aamir & Ms Sarwar have both been providing additional support in the nursery this term. They have supported the children well in their learning and have also worked hard to support the staff.
We wish Tahira & Aisha all the best next term!
It is always sad when people move on and we will miss those that are leaving. However, we have a number of new members of staff, both teaching and support staff, joining us in September who I am sure will be real assets to the school. I am looking forward to welcoming them, and will introduce them to you next term.
I would like to thank you all for the support you have given to the children and to the school this year. I am sure that you will agree that it has been another successful year, full of exciting opportunities which the children have really enjoyed. I am looking forward to having another good one next year.
Have a lovely holiday with the children, and we look forward to welcoming you all back on September 3rd for another new school year. Happy holidays!
