The 'Manor Court 48'

At Manor Court Community Primary school, we take pride in the social and academic achievements of all children and the enriched curriculum that we offer. We appreciate that an remarkable education is more than excellent teaching, but is learning through a variety of opportunities, life skills and experiences and some of this may solely be opportunities to ‘simply have fun’!

The ‘Manor Court 48’ is a selection of 48 opportunities (one per half term in each year group and the EYC) that we consider children should experience before they leave Primary education. It is our expectation that these opportunities will ensure that all children will have an even greater love of learning and a particular passion or hidden talent will be found.
