Our Governors

Russell Copley - Chair of Governors

Mark Ashton-Blanksby - Vice-Chair of Governors


Welcome from Mr Copley, Chair of Governors:

"On behalf of the Local Governing Board of John of Rolleston Primary School I would like to welcome you to our family.

As Governors, we are committed to providing our children with the best possible education – not just academically, but socially and psychologically, so that we educate the 'whole' child and provide them with the tools to survive in the modern world.

The Governors work in strong partnership with the school staff (teaching and support), the parents, the Multi-Academy Trust, of which we are an integral part of our local community and with the pupils.

We are proud of our holistic and fully inclusive approach.  We set high standards, but remain open to discussion, dialogue and new ideas".
