Ingfield Manor School and Ingfield Manor School for Parents

Ingfield Manor School - Fulfilling potential through Conductive Education

At Ingfield Manor School the curriculum is based on, and firmly embedded in the theory and practice of Conductive Education. This ethos enables our pupils to develop independence, living as active and purposeful individuals. We offer a specialised curriculum which meets the needs of children and young people with neurological motor impairments like cerebral palsy, and associated additional needs.

Pupils and students are supported in their learning by unique trans-disciplinary teams – Staff (including teachers and therapists) with different specialisms work in mixed teams to meet all the needs of each individual.

Ingfield Manor Early Years provision offers full or part-time places for children age three to six; Pre-school, Reception and Year 1. The dynamic and holistic approach enables the children to actively learn a range of essential foundation skills through the play based Early Years Foundation stage.

Within Ingfield Manor Primary department the pupils are taught the National Curriculum in small classes (typically 6-10 pupils), delivered by skilled teachers who are able to differentiate to meet the learning needs within the group.

The Secondary and Sixth Form departments deliver an integrated curriculum which is personalised to ensure the potential of individual students, raise their aspirations and develop the skills needed for adult life.

Ingfield Manor School for Parents is a unique service for families of babies and very young children from birth to five years. Parents and children learn daily living skills together using the principles of Conductive Education. The ethos of active learning through play and partnership with parents is central to the practice of School for Parents.
