What is the RSSG?
RSSG (Rosley School Support Group) is a registered charity made up of friends and family of pupils, members of the local community and school staff. We are a voluntary group aiming to provide pupils with experiences that enhance their learning and promote friendship and community spirit.
What does the support group do?
We raise money and provide practical help and support via a wide range of activities and events that benefit the children’s school life.
Parents of pupils at the school are automatically members of the RSSG and all are welcome to attend meetings, join in with activities and suggest future events. The group offers parents and carers an excellent opportunity to get to know each other.

Who should I contact if I want to get involved?
Any member of school staff will happily point you in the direction of the RSSG Committee (Chair: Julie Turner; Secretary: Susan Mounsey; Treasurer: Emma Wallbank) or watch out for meeting times in school newsletters or on display outside school.
Can I still help if I don’t have much time or can’t make it to meetings?
Of course you can. The group welcomes whatever contribution individuals are able to make. Some supporters bake or provide soup for events; others man stalls or sell raffle tickets. An extra pair of hands to help tidy away at the end of an event is always welcome, so there are plenty of opportunities to get involved even if you can’t give much time.
