Governors are drawn from all walks of life and represent the community served by the school. Governors work closely with the headteacher, school staff and representatives from the Local Authority. Governors ask questions, gather information and help make decisions about the future operation of the school.

Below is a list of Rosebrook’s current governors:
Mr Eddie Huntington
Local Authority Governor
Cllr Jim Beall
I lived in the Roseworth area for over 25 years and with my wife, Pauline, brought up a family here. I have been a Roseworth Ward Councillor since 2007, previously having had over 30 years’ experience in local government working in both children and adult social care services. Currently, I am the Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Adult Services & Health but am also still very much involved in children’s issues, including being Chair of Eastern Ravens Trust, a local charity which works mainly with young people in Roseworth. I was previously a Governor of both Roseworth Primary and Blakeston Schools and have the proud privilege of being a founder Governor of Rosebrook and its first Chair of Governors.
I joined Rosebrook Primary School as the Senior Administrator in February 2012. Prior to this, I worked for over 15 years for a local Mechanical and Electrical Engineering company with responsibility for the reporting and analysis of monthly cost and sales figures, management of the company quality management system and the organisation of training and development for our management and tradesmen. I have enjoyed the opportunity to bring my financial and administration skills into a new environment and have myself learned new skills since joining the school. In November 2013 I was elected as a Staff Governor and look forward to being part of the team to drive the continual improvement of the school.
As an 'incomer' from Lancashire 40 years ago I have spent the majority of my life teaching in Stockton and Middlesbrough, bringing up my daughter, Jane and looking after my husband, John. I was lucky to be a teacher at Redbrook Primary School for over 20 years, spending most of that time teaching in Key Stage 2. I was also the staff governor for a number of years. On my retirement 4 years ago I became a Governor at Roseworth School and subsequently at Rosebrook where I now hold the position of Vice Chair. I am also a member of the Education Appeals Panel for Stockton, something which I find very interesting and at times quite challenging. During my spare time I pursue my hobbies of knitting, crocheting, reading and going on holiday.
I am a community governor and am also the manager at Redhill Children’s Centre and therefore work closely with the school and local families on a daily basis. With a background in early years I am particularly interested in supporting the school with children in the early days of their education.I have previously been a parent governor and staff governor in schools in Darlington and understand the importance of supporting the school in this way.
I have been a Community Governor for the past 4 years, and have worked closely with the Head Teacher and Staff to celebrate and consolidate their successes. I continue to work as a Teaching and Learning Consultant, and have been able to support the staff with their assessment procedures as well as the implementation of the new National Curriculum. I am looking forward to a further term as Governor, and to keeping in touch with parents through the Newsletter.
I have been a TA at Rosebrook since it started in 2008. Most of my time is spent with children from our enhanced provision. These children are mostly on the autistic spectrum. My role as a governor allows me to advocate for these children as well as see the wider picture of school governance.
Currently we have vacancies for parent governors - Please contact the school for further information.
