It is a pleasure to welcome you to our school website. Manley Park Primary School is a community I am incredibly proud of and grateful to belong to. This is a place where everyone supports each other by exemplifying our values: compassion, responsibility, respect, patience, positivity and understanding.

As headteacher, I am supported by a team whose dedication, energy and talent are inspiring. Together, we aim to provide an education and environment which supports and enriches the lives of all our pupils. Our relationships are based on mutual respect, and we believe that our pupils have much to offer the leadership of the school.


Together, we are committed to all learners being inspired to achieve academic success. We provide learning experiences that are relevant, motivational and challenging. Our curriculum and collaborative learning approaches nurture personal growth. Pupils become socially responsible citizens of our community and the world.
