Norbury Manor Primary School. Have you ever thought of becoming a school governor?


Norbury Governors are seeking to strengthen the Governing Body. We are seeking people with local knowledge and experience of buildings management, financial management or children’s services.

Norbury Manor is a thriving lively school led by Sonia Potter, a creative and dynamic Head Teacher, and a Governing Body committed to ensuring that learning is fun and different subject areas are linked together. As the summer term ends the children have been involved in the third Challenge Week which takes a theme around which educational activities are focussed, the latest being on heathly living. A range of new clubs have been started, including a choir that has already performed on stage with an orchestra and sings at Assemblies. The children have their own School Council which has been active on projects to improve the playtime experience, to help choose the new lunch time caterers and their menu activities offer, and to question Governors on their roles and motivation. The Year 6 children who are starting secondary school in September have achieved higher SATs results than in previous years.

The school is 3 form entry Primary school serving a mixed population. We are improving the school since our last Ofsted 2 years ago.

Time commitment would be one or two meetings and one or two half days per term. We are all volunteers.

Please contact the chair of Governors for further information and to arrange a visit to the school:
