St Philip's Church of England

Controlled Primary School

Mrs N Manton

As a committed foundational school governor I have the privilege to serve with other governors towards the wellbeing and smooth running of such a busy and highly respected school.   I also enjoy on a weekly basis listening to and helping children to reach their potential as competent readers.   Alongside this I have the honour to encourage a group of the older children called ‘The Worship Warriors,’ to take part in leading half-term and end of term assemblies within the life of the school. Sometimes this takes part in St. Philip’s church whereby parents and congregational members can see for themselves the progress these children are making.   I feel this helps the children to understand and respect more about; not just the Christian faith, but all faiths too.  As well as being fun and part of a team it also helps them to grow in confidence.
