Meet the Governors

Mr Pete Townrow: Chair of Governors

Mr Pete Townrow: Chair of Governors 1
A very warm welcome to Manea Community Primary School’s website – we hope you find out what it is you need to know but if you don’t, then please do contact us as we would be delighted to help you further.
We are immensely proud of the School and if you visit us you will know exactly why we feel that way. The School is calm and well ordered with children always really busy enjoying their learning. The teaching and support staff form a great team - passionate and innovative in their teaching methods and approaches while maintaining an atmosphere that is always friendly, safe, caring and hugely supportive.
The Governors are responsible for the vision, ethos and direction of the school and are ambitious for all of our children, wanting them to achieve the best possible individual outcomes. We hold the School Leaders to account for the educational performance of the whole school and for the individual children by a range of methods including:
·       visiting the school, talking to staff, pupils and parents and seeing for ourselves what’s happening
·       asking challenging questions during our visits as well as in formal meetings
·       undertaking regular and thorough analysis of pupil progress and attainment information against local and national benchmarks
·       listening to all of our key stakeholders
Being a Governor can be an immensely demanding and challenging experience but the rewards of seeing children develop and reach their true potential can be nothing short of exhilarating!
We welcome new governors who have the right skills and experience or who are simply keen and ready to learn. Vacancies do occur from time to time and a full training programme is available for those keen to serve, support and develop our school.
