Information about our Governors

There are currently 12 governors at Rolleston Primary School who are appointed through various routes.  There are parent governors, who are elected by the parents themselves, and co-opted governors who are people from our community that can bring skills to the Governing Body to contribute to the School.  Co-opted governors are appointed by the Governing Body itself.  You can find out more about our governors below.

I started teaching at Marriott Primary School on Saffron Lane in 1994. During my 19 years there I led behaviour teams, creativity teams and ICT teams as well as spending 5 years as a Deputy.

My time as a governor involves working with staff and my fellow governors to ensure that all parents/carers and children are happy with the school. I believe every child is entitled to the best education and at Rolleston we like to help your children become happy, confident, successful individuals.

Roxanne Stevenson (Parent Governor)

My name is Roxanne Stevenson and I joined the governor team approximately two years ago. I work from home and am a mother to two children, a boy and a girl. My drive to become a parent governor was initially to support and understand the education of my two children who attend and have attended Rolleston, but the more experience I have gained the more I have become enthusiastic about the safeguarding and support of all children within the school.

My name is Carl Huggins and along with my Wife Michelle, we are the Salvation Army Officers who run the church on Ladysmith Road, South Wigston. I enjoy being a governor because it helps me get to know the community I live in and understand the needs of the area. The main reason I became a governor at Rolleston Primary School is because I want every child to achieve and be the best that they can be. I believe that I have the skills to help the school develop a way forward which encourages the children to aim high.  


Rebecca Derbyshire (Parent Governor)

I was first involved with the school as a volunteer when my daughter started in F1, now in year 6! I work part time as a Recruitment Consultant and have just the 1 child. I was elected as parent governor in November 2012 and I feel privileged to be part of such a wonderful school with aspirational values and goals for both pupils and teachers. It is such a great place to visit and every time I do it's full of smiles and joyful children. 

At Rolleston we are committed to safeguarding our children
