Choosing the first school for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent will ever have to make. So much depends on the grounding which your child is given and so much depends on the people who give it. I am very pleased that you are considering Manston Primary School for your child.  To assist you with your decision you are welcome to attend Manston Primary School on the following dates:

Wednesday 6th November 2019 at October at 11.00am, or 1.30pm.

OFSTED September 2017

Manston Primary School continues to be good.

The leadership team has maintained and built on the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Leaders bring an ambitious, positive approach to making sure that children are happy and successful in their learning.

Creating a vibrant, welcoming and safe learning environments is high on the agenda.

The support for pupils to catch up, when necessary, is impressive and quality support from teaching assistants has a positive impact.

Productivity across lessons is high and pupils are encouraged to be confident, independent learners. Pupils ‘attitudes to learning are very positive and they take pride in their work. There are high expectations in the way pupils present their work, particularly in writing and maths. 

The governors and the local authority quite rightly have a positive view of the school.




I chose Manston Primary because I was impressed with the facilities and ethos of the school.  My daughter was immediately comfortable in the surroundings.


Having attended a number of primary school open days we were extremely impressed with the facilities at Manston Primary School.


Our eldest child is a pupil and we have been impressed with education and caring attitude at Manston Primary School. 


My elder child goes to Manston Primary School and I wouldn’t want my youngest to go anywhere else.


I have heard that Manston Primary School has a very good reputation.  I want the best for my child and believe they could give her the best teaching this area has to offer.
