All parents is welcome whether your child is ready for school, already attending school or you are just curious.

Bhaktivedanta Manor primary School

Bhaktivedanta Manor School respects every child as an individual and aims to develop their full academic, spiritual and moral potential. With the benefit of a teacher:pupil ratio of 1:10, the children get lots of attention and the chance to explore their individual talents.

The small class sizes make for a strong academic foundation built on a blend of traditional and modern methods with a range of stimulating activities. Priority is given to reading and writing, music, group singing and performing arts.

The Manor grounds, gardens and farm provide the perfect learning environment for the children. they enjoy a balanced mix of yoga, games, swimming, dance and movement, all of which help develop their health and interpersonal skills to promote selfconfidence and teamwork.

A love of learning is encouraged in a caring atmosphere that helps build the children’s self-esteem, so they can grow as confident and positive individuals of good character, behaviour and competence. they are taught to reflect on their experiences and become aware of themselves, their relationships with others and the world around them, with respect and understanding toward all religions.

The Art of Hedge-laying

Friday, April 26th, 2013

After learning about trees and the art of Hedge-laying last Autumn, the children of The Manor School embarked on a project to further enhance the wildlife at Bhaktivedanta Manor and the beauty of the hedgerow along the main drive.  In consultation with Donato Cinicolo, a professional hedgelayer and with the help and support of Uddhava, the head gardener, the children planted over hundred trees of  crab-apple, wild plum, wild cherry and spindle.

Over the next few months the children will be carefully observing the hedgerow for changes and monitoring the wildlife.  They will be entering into a National green competition based on their learning, both theoretical and practical throughout this activity.

Avanti Schools Trust looking for families with children

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

 

Dear all,

We are looking for families with children under the age of 18 or are expecting to have children in the near future.

Avanti Schools Trust is considering applying for new Hindu faith schools in several locations to open in 2014.

The schools facilitate children from all backgrounds and abilities on a journey of self-discovery. Our ethos is moulded around a unique personalised approach to learning, with the long-term happiness and fulfilment of the child at the heart of everything that we do. The schools have structured approaches to learning and questioning skills and a clear sense of the sets of knowledge and understanding that are central to informed, articulate and confident citizens.

We promote holistic, responsible lifestyles through a vegetarian diet, a curriculum that integrates yoga and meditation and a built environment that actively fosters environmental concern. Pupils are nurtured and cared for in a way that builds the foundation for their high academic achievement, exemplary character and wholesome sense of identity, set within an open and inclusive school.

Please complete the a short survey to help us understand your views about such schools by visiting www.avanti.org.uk/survey. Please also take a moment to forward this message to your friends and family.

Thank you for your time.

 

Kind regards,

Nitesh Gor
