It’s been a great week at Manchester Road this week. We have had visitors from a school in Jamaica who have been stunned by the resources, behaviour and exciting learning taking place in our school.
Darren Holmes, one of the directors of the trust, visited the school on Monday and we had a thorough look through the children’s books. We also visited every classroom to look at the quality of teaching and learning. It was a really good day, and we discovered many things that are great about MRPA, and some things we can be working at to make it even better.

I visited Limetree Academy this week to investigate how newly qualified teachers can settle into the profession quickly and become great teachers. This was a very informative day, and I learnt lots about systems for teaching and learning – it was also good to share some of our practice.
The Mayor visited school on Monday to present the Gold Active Mark for the school. This was presented to Mr Hadfield, Mr Ismail and Mr Smith – all of whom make a huge contribution to sport and activity in the school. The Active mark is about so much more than competition – it’s about participation, the Playground Leaders, high quality PE and children’s attitudes towards keeping healthy. Well done to all staff and parents who help through last year to make this possible.
Year 3 presented their learning in assembly this morning, and this was a pleasure to watch – an amazing walk through Manchester and other cities around the world. Well done everyone!
As a last thought, please can I remind parents, children and whoever reads this blog that we are collecting for Key 103 Mission Christmas appeal – we have a few gifts already, but it would be great to be able to tkae a huge pile off to the warehouse in a few weeks time. x
Have a great weekend everyone
