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”.

I have two daughters, who both attended Rosley School many years ago and loved every minute of it.  During their time at school I had an active role in the Rosley School Support Group, raising funds for many projects, including the sports field, the Nativity scene, paths in the nearby woods and so many more.  It’s great to see them still being used.

I am very happy to part of the governing body to ensure that Rosley School gives all children the best opportunity to grow and learn in excellent surroundings,  helping them to flourish in a safe environment.

As part of my governor’s role, you might see me in the school kitchen, working alongside Mrs Dickinson as she cooks nutritional and delicious lunches for all our pupils and some of the Busy Bees children too.

Mrs Glynis Milburn
Foundation Governor

It was quite a privilege to be asked to be on the board of governors of Rosley C of E School. My grandchildren are pupils here and I have watched them grow into confident, caring young people from the guidance and leadership given by the staff. As a Retired Lay Reader I am happy that they are pupils at a school that has such a strong Christian ethos and good links with Rosley Church.

I am an Independent Funeral Celebrant and as such I could hopefully, help children learn about that side of “life” should  the question every arise.

We dream for all our children to grow up to be happy, kind-hearted, caring, responsible and successful members of God’s Creation and Rosley schoolchildren are well on their way to being these members.”

Proverbs 22: 6   Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

I began my teaching career at Rosley in late 2015 and what an exciting time I’ve had teaching in the different classes since then! I currently work full time teaching Years 1 and 2 and am lucky enough to get time with Reception class too. I love my role at the lower end of the school, as I get to develop early learning!
