'The quality of pastoral care is excellent' - ISI Report, November 2011

The safety and well-being of pupils is extremely important at Manor House School, a small independent school in Leicestershire.

In their 2011 report, inspectors noted that 'In a caring community, the pupils’ personal development is excellent. Pupils are friendly and courteous, reflecting the school’s emphasis on sound personal values and good standards of behaviour.' 

The school's Pastoral programme protects and promotes pupil welfare in a number of ways. Working in smaller classes, teaching staff know pupils well and can quickly identify when individuals are in need of extra support. Pupils who are struggling with academic, behavioural or personal issues may be offered this support through the school's 'buddying' scheme.

From an early age, pupils are encouraged to take greater responsibility for themselves and the ways in which their actions can affect and influence others.

'In the close-knit community, relationships between pupils and between staff and pupils are excellent, resulting in a high level of trust that encourages pupils to seek help when it is needed' - ISI Report, 2011


Through channels such as the School Council and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education), pupils find out more about health matters, social and moral issues, and behaviour management.

The House system also encourages pupils to work together and to understand the values of co-operation and endeavour and our ethos supports the community spirit within our school and a joint responsibilty towards others.
