Our Governors


The core functions of our governing body, as set out in The School Governance (Roles, Procedures and Allowances) (England) Regulations 2013, are:

  • ensuring that the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school are clearly defined;
  • ensuring that the head teacher performs his or her responsibilities for the educational performance of the school; and
  • ensuring the sound, proper and effective use of the school’s financial resources.

The statutory purpose of the Governing Body is to promote high standards of educational achievement at the school.

The day to day management of the school is the responsibility of the Headteacher and staff, whereas the governors are responsible for the general direction of the school and providing a strategic overview.

The Governing Body acts as a critical friend to the school and ensures accountability, whilst considering the interests of children, parents and staff. It makes decisions about curriculum, finance, staffing and premises matters, to help raise standards of achievement and to make sure that the school provides a good quality education for all of our pupils.


The Governing Body of Manor Green Primary consists of 12 members and operates without a committee structure. 

Governors serve for a term of 2 years for Chair(s) and 4 years for all others.
