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.

Karen Lambert (Chair of Governors)
My name is Karen Lambert. I live on the Eyres Monsell estate and I am a stay at home Mum of 5 children. Over 10 years ago when my children were at Rolleston I became a parent governor. I am now Chair of governors and I have enjoyed seeing the school change over time. 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 Becky Bunting and I work as a chartered accountant and tax adviser in a global accountancy firm. Rolleston is a school that means a lot to my family because my mum attended the school herself as a child and my grandad also volunteered here for a number of years and it was very important to him. I therefore wanted to use my finance and business skills to contribute towards the governance of the school (particularly as I also lived on the Eyres Monsell Estate when I was younger). As a parent myself, I believe passionately that every child deserves a good, well-rounded education and I am committed to helping Rolleston to deliver this.
My name is Haroon Mansoor and I am currently Head of History at a secondary school in the city.

I hope to help the school through being a member of the governing body to continue to improve and provide a great education for all our students.
My Name is Kieron Maher and I am the Site Manager for Rolleston Primary. As a Site Manager my main role is to ensure the school is a safe environment for the children to learn. By sitting on this governing body I am able to help deliver the best education possible for our pupils. The children are all fantastic and I am keen to help provide them with the tools they need to build a bright future.
