The study investigated management of instructional supervision and staff welfare in primary schools in Kogi east education zone of Kogi state. The study was guided by two research questions and two null hypotheses. Descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. The sample of the study was 964 head teachers, 9 Education secretaries and 30 SUBEB senior staff. The instruments used for data collection was Instructional Supervision and Staff Development Parameter (ISSDP) which focused group discussion and interview schedule. In addition, a Physical Facilities and Equipment Observation Schedule (PFEOS) were used for on-the- sport assessment of the physical facilities in selected schools in the study area. Mean scores and standard deviations were used to answer the research questions, while the t-test statistics was used to test the null hypotheses at 0.05 levels of significance. Also percentage scores were used to analyse the data obtained from observation with checklist. The study, among others, revealed that funds meant for the management of primary schools were utilized to a little extent in maintenance of school buildings and in providing physical facilities/educational materials for effective teaching and learning. Findings also revealed that organising seminars and workshops for teachers, auditing primary schools’ account, granting study leave with pay to teachers and providing adequate qualified teachers to primary schools were given little attention. Based on the findings, the researcher recommended that: education sector should be adequately funded so that enough funds will be disbursed to LGEAs for proper management of primary schools. Also there should be regular auditing of the funds so allocated to ensure that they are judiciously used for the purpose they are meant for.
