The Governors

Welcome to Manor Primary School Governing Body Page

All governors at Manor Primary School are fully committed to their very important role.

The governing body has three core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the Head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of the staff.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

We carry out these functions in a variety of ways throughout the year.

The governors attend 12 Full Governing Body meetings each year, where we focus on core functions, as well as financial, Personnel and Premises matters. These meetings are always well attended.

The Executive Head teacher provides a very detailed report each term and welcomes challenge from the governors.

All governors have lead roles which are listed on the next page.

All governors make visits into school, throughout the year, to monitor the School Development Plan (which is the strategic plan for the school) or to monitor the area for which they have a lead role. Written reports of the visits are then circulated to all governors.

Governors are expected to attend Training Courses to develop their knowledge and skills.

Governors also attend the various school events throughout the year. These visits enable the governors to participate fully in the life of the school.

We welcome any questions from children, staff, parents and the community and can always be contacted by email, through the clerk to the governors by emailing Sam Morgan clerk@manor.devon.sch.uk
