Key findings

Manor Green is an outstanding school.

Pupils thrive in the school, responding enthusiastically to the adults' high aspirations for them in both their academic and personal development. The outstanding curriculum has continued to be developed imaginatively since the last inspection and it promotes pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development exceptionally well. Achievement is outstanding with children making rapid and sustained progress from when they start in the Early Years Foundation Stage to when they leave in Year 6.

Achievement is particularly strong in pupils' development of their communication and other key skills. All the different groups of pupils that the school provides... for learn exceptionally well, including those who join in Years 5 and 6. Teaching is outstanding as teachers use their specialist knowledge to plan lessons which enthuse and motivate the pupils.

This planning, combined with pupils' exceptionally positive attitudes to learning, helps them to tackle with resilience the challenges the teachers pose for them. Work is planned extremely well to meet the different needs of the pupils in lessons on the basis of teachers' accurate assessments. However, there are insufficient opportunities for pupils to review the progress they are making in their own work.

Behaviour in lessons and around the school is outstanding and pupils demonstrated their very clear understanding of how to keep themselves safe from harm, for example in the snowy conditions during the inspection. Outstanding leadership and management have contributed to the school continuing to improve since its last inspection in 2009 and maintaining the highest levels of achievement. Such performance has been sustained since the school opened in 2004 and reflects both the ambitions of all involved with the school and their relentless focus on continuing to improve on what the school provides.

Information about the school

Manor Green is a larger than average–sized special school catering for pupils with a wide range of learning difficulties. All the pupils have a statement of special educational needs. As at the last inspection, in over half the cases, the statement of special educational needs is for moderate or severe learning difficulties.

Pupils are grouped into classes according to their age and capabilities. Additionally, there are separate classes in both lower and upper schools for pupils who have been identified with complex social and communication difficulties and separate classes for those identified as having an autistic spectrum condition. A significant proportion of pupils in the Upper School join the school in Years 5 and 6.

Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage represent approximately one sixth of the school roll; almost all have complex social difficulties as well as other special needs. There are many more boys than girls. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is above the national average.

The majority of the pupils are from a White British background, but about one tenth of the pupils speak English as an additional language. Very few pupils are looked after. The school has achieved Investors in People and Silver Eco School status since the last inspection.
