As a member of the Governing Body, I am able to keep our governors informed of pupil progress and attainment on a regular basis through my Head Teacher reports.  We work closely together to identify areas for school improvement.

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”.

We moved to Rosley in 2011 just before our daughter was born. Both our children attended Busy Bees prior to starting Rosley School and they are very settled there.

I love the family feel within the school and the values it instills. School always strives to listen to what parents want and, where it can, will deliver this.

I’m very much looking forward to supporting the school in my capacity as parent governor since my appointment in November 2018.
