Welcome to Rockliffe Manor Primary, we are really proud of our school. As a Governing Body, we are a strong and active cross section of people, with the objectives of providing a strategic view, ensuring accountability, and acting as a critical friend, through support and advice. 

By providing an exciting curriculum within a caring and secure environment, we aim to ensure that each child can reach his or her full potential in every aspect of their development at Rockliffe Manor.

Una Coyne

Chair of Governors, Chair of Finance and Personnel Committee and Phase Link Governor - KS1

Co-opted Governor

Finance and Personnel Committee

My name is Una Coyne and I have been a Governor at Rockliffe Manor Primary School for about 4 years. For most of that time I have been the Vice-Chair of the Governing Body and the Chair of the Finance and Personnel Committee. Currently, I am acting Chair of Governors.

I have taught in London schools for over 30 years including at Rockliffe as a part-time teacher for 3 years until 2008. I was a headteacher in the London Borough of Lewisham for 7 years. At present, I lead the Initial Teacher Education programmes for training the next generation of primary teachers at Goldsmiths, University of London. 

I have been on several Governing Bodies previously and I have really enjoyed continuing my direct association with schools now that I am no longer teaching children but rather teaching adults to undertake the job that I loved.

Betty Liebovich

Chair of Learning and Achievement Committee and Phase Link Governor - EYFS

Co-opted Governor

Learning and Achievement Committee

My name is Dr Betty Liebovich and I have been a Governor at Rockliffe Manor Primary school for two years and became the Chair of the Learning and Achievement committee in 2015.

I pursued the role of a Governor because I am interested in understanding primary school processes from the perspective of the school. As a lecturer in Early Years education at Goldsmiths University of London, I have a theoretical knowledge of learning and teaching, and am keen to understand how the EYFS fits into the Primary educational setting. The Governor position has allowed me to observe practice throughout the Key Stages as well as understand the complexities of organising and supporting the learning and teaching that transpires.

I find the role of Governor very rewarding and look forward to continuing in this role, building on my own knowledge and understanding.

Kirsty Murphy

Phase Link Governor - KS1

Parent Governor

Premises and Health and Safety Committee

I became a Parent Governor at Rockliffe Manor in December 2015 and am finding it really interesting to see how the school works 'behind the scenes'. As a parent of children at the school, I wanted to become involved in a bigger way while providing a voice for parents where needed. 

I really had no idea how much goes on daily in order to make our school the best and happiest possible educational environment for the children and can see that staff are constantly striving to make this happen.

I have been a parent governor for about 6 months now so am new to it all.

I have worked in a local primary school for 17 years, first as a T.A. and currently as a Learning Mentor. I love my job and I have experience and a passion for supporting children with challenging behaviour.
