Unlike posts, pages in WordPress do not have excerpts as standard so you need to either enable them manually with code, or install a plugin to take care of it for you.

If you are comfortable with editing the functions.php file for your theme, then you can simply add this line to enable excerpts for pages: add_post_type_support( 'page', 'excerpt' );

Alternatively, you can install the Page Excerpt page for WordPress which will enable excerpts for pages automatically for you.
