Dear Parents and Friends,

On behalf of all the Governors, welcome to Manor Farm Infant School.

At Manor Farm Infant School, governors, staff, parents and children work as a team, building on success, in an atmosphere of care where everyone feels valued.

We are proud of the high standards our pupils achieve across the curriculum.

As Governors we become involved with a variety of issues including finance, pupil welfare, public relations, building/grounds maintenance and staff appointments. However, without a doubt, we consider that our most important role is to monitor the welfare and education of the pupils.

We are justifiably proud of the children in our school. In addition, this is an opportunity for me to thank all the parents who encourage and support their children so admirably. In a good school, such as ours, parents take a great interest in their child’s learning. During the early years of primary education, academic, personal, social and creative skills are nurtured and developed. The strong partnership, which already exists between school and community, underpins the ethos, which is so characteristic of Manor Farm Infant School.

Governors are appointed to ensure that objectives are met and that planning for the future is both visionary and realistic. We are here to support and encourage the Headteacher and all school personnel so that children have access to an enriched education and the opportunities they deserve. 

I am available to parents for any matter relating to the school, once you have discussed it with the Headteacher. Parents and governors have key roles in helping Manor Farm Infant School to maintain high standards for all our children both now, and for future generations.

With my best wishes,

The Governing Board
