Relationships and Behaviour at Hanborough Manor School

At Hanborough Manor we place an emphasis on making relationships with all stakeholders - staff, pupils and parents.  We have a restorative and relationship focussed approach to behaviour management, which allows our children to learn in a calm and caring environment which will support every child both emotionally and educationally to give them the best possible chance of success.
