Description of the school

This is a smaller than average sized primary school. It serves the villages of Manuden and Berden, from which most pupils come. Children start their Early Years Foundation Stage education at the beginning of the Reception Year. Attainment on entry is similar to that normally expected of children of this age. The proportion of pupils who have learning difficulties and/or disabilities is smaller than in other schools. An average proportion has a statement of special educational needs. The main identified needs include moderate learning difficulties and those on the autistic spectrum. The number of pupils coming from minority ethnic backgrounds is much lower than in most schools and none is at an early stage of learning English. Manuden Pre-school Playgroup operates from the school hall. It is managed independently of Manuden’s governing body.
