Welcome to Ingfield Manor
Ingfield Manor School aims to provide an environment in which children and young people feel that they are valued as holistic, active learners and empowered with the confidence and self-esteem to make choices and develop skills throughout their school career. This is enabled by the principles of Conductive Education and the dedication of a trans-disciplinary team who are committed to delivering the holistic curriculum.
The highly trained and well-motivated trans-disciplinary team work cooperatively together to facilitate the children’s achievement and positive outcomes. The team consists of a teacher, physiotherapist, occupational therapist and speech and language therapist and team members with relevant qualifications. Regular input and support is provided by a range of onsite professionals including a teacher for the visually impaired, a teacher for the hearing impaired and a nursing team.
The development of children’s communication skills is integral to the daily teaching routine with the use of a total communication approach including the use of vocalisation and speech, Makaton signing, symbols and communication books.
Information communication technology is used to support communication, access to the curriculum and to provide experiences that enrich children’s learning. Structured and systematic communication and ICT pathways are in place to ensure the development of the children’s skills with onsite technical expertise.
