At Manor School we cater for the needs of 133 children with severe learning difficulties between the ages of 4 and 11. Manor School is an inner city school in London, England with a diverse multi-cultural intake.
Joanna Procter has delivered two separate projects with our pupils this year. She initially came to work with us through a link with an agency that provided funding for developing citizenship skills through drama. This project was very successful and we saw our pupils achieve success beyond our expectations in both developing citizenship skills and using drama as a medium.
On the basis of this work we were keen to bring Joanna’s expertise back into our school to support the development of an Art Week project incorporating, drama, music, art and expression. Joanna Procter excelled in meeting these aims. Joanna is a very committed and reflective practitioner who has high expectations for pupils based on perceptive observation and formative assessment of pupil’s skills and aptitudes.
