Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' Section!

 

The Role of a School Governor

 

School governors are people from the school and local community who wish to make a positive contribution to the education of children at Rosehill Junior School.  They must be aged 18 or over at the time of their appointment.  They are elected to serve on the Governing body for a set period of time.

 

Our governors have a wide range of knowledge and experience between them which is required to ensure the Head Teacher and the school make the right decisions for benefit of the children and staff at the school.

Governors have an extremely important part to play in raising school standards and expectations by ensuring accountability, setting strategic direction and evaluating the school's performance.

Diane Douglas B.A (Hons.)
Chair of Governors
Co-opted Governor appointed by the Governing Body

Appointed October 2008 Expires 21 July 2019Business Interest:  Employee of RMBC
Attendance 2015/2016 - 100%

 

I am the Chair of the Governing Body at Rosehill School, and I have been in the role for the past 8 years.  I have gained the confidence and trust as well as a sound working relationship with the staff, the leadership team and in particular with the Head teacher.  I believe it is vitally important that the Governing Body work together with the School  to give the children the best opportunities we can, by continuing to support Rosehill with all aspects of our role as Governors. 

 

As a critical friend to the School, my role is a strategic role and therefore I am not involved in the day to day management of the School – that’s the Head Teacher’s role.  I do however, love to visit the School to see and meet the children in the classrooms, in assembly and especially when they are performing in concerts.

I am Natalie Lindley a Parent Governor at Rosehill Junior School.  I am new to the post and my first meeting will be in July 2016.  I was nominated to take up this position as I have one child already at Rosehill and one child ready to start in September and I am keen to represent all parents/carers of Rosehill Junior School.

 

I have an interest in social and financial inclusion within the community.  I am presently employed as a Housing Officer at a Housing Association and therefore understand the day to day challenges faced by parents/carers.
