I also keep the governing body updated of any relevant changes in education and outcomes of meetings with our school consortium (RSC).

We work together to ensure policies and procedures relating to all aspects of school life are in place .

We are extremely lucky at Rosley to have such an active and supportive Governing Body and it is a pleasure to work with them.

I have always lived in the area and my son attended Busy Bees Pre School before starting  Rosley CE.
We always intended for him to come to Rosley School and we particularly love the friendly atmosphere and open door attitude. It is wonderful that every child is known as an individual, not only by their teacher but the entire team of staff within the school.
As a parent governor I look forward to supporting the school in all aspects and helping to continue the caring, family feel that the school offers.

I became a Foundation governor in March 2016.

Both our boys attended Rosley School and had a tremendous experience, both regarding their education and preparing them for the next step into the big world of secondary education.

During some of the time the boys attended the school I was chair of the Rosley School Support Group, and we had a great time raising funds through various ways, but the most memorable were the 150 mile cycle rides, such as the Coast to Coast route that became almost regular!

The school link to the church and the diocese helps provide a broader education than many schools can offer, and I am looking forward to contributing to that very close bond, and to the continued success of the school and its “high academic standards”.

Both my girls attend the school and we love the Christian distinctiveness of the school and that the staff know each child individually and care deeply for them as a whole child.

I have lived in Rosley parish for over 30 years and two of my children attended Rosley School. I am delighted to be back on the governing body after a break of over 20 years! 

Rosley School is full of enthusiasm, with teachers aiming for the best for each and every pupil. It is a school of individuals who combine into a very strong community. I love being involved with the school and am passionate about staff, pupils and governors giving their best and being the people who God wants them to be. For me, education is more than the academic and Rosley School in partnership with parents aims to provide that.

I became a Governor at Rosley School back in September 2020 and more recently in September 2022, I became the Chair of Governors.

Rosley school holds a fond place in my heart as my daughter came to the school and she absolutely flourished under the care and teaching of the school.  I was delighted to become a Governor when she left the School as it meant I can continue to be part of the school community and provide governor support as a way of paying back all that the school gave to my daughter.

I work for a local Education based employment agency and training provider and as a result I have daily contact with Schools, Teachers and Support Staff which I feels gives me a sense of perspective and a good degree of knowledge of educational issues. I am a qualified HR Professional and having worked at HR Director level across a number of sectors for the last 15 years, I feel I have relevant skills and experience for the role I fulfil on the governing body.

Ms Caroline Pattinson
Parent governor

Volunteer parent Governor, appointed in 2021 for four years ending in 2025.
Governing Body Meetings -2022/23 attended 1 of 1

I became a governor because of the tremendous experience that my daughter is having at Rosley School. The school fosters kindness and compassion in all its pupils and they are qualities that I would like my daughter to live her life by. The school nurtures the whole child but also prepares them well academically and I know my daughter will go on to flourish at secondary school because of her experience at Rosley.

I am an experienced secondary school teacher. I have also been a Pastoral Head of Year at my school and I currently work one evening a week with boarders of all ages. I hope that my experience and skills will allow me to fulfil the role of Foundation Governor to the best of my ability.
