Parent Governor Election

The links below will allow you to download an information letter and a nomination form for the parent governor election. 

A Local Governing Body has been established for Rosedale Primary School.  The Local Governing Body’s overall purpose is to:

  • ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school;
  • hold the Headteacher and senior leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its children and the performance management of staff;
  • oversee the financial performance of the school, making sure delegated money is well spent against the identified priorities and within the agreed budget;
  • actively embrace community, parental and staff engagement to raise the profile of the school within the locality and beyond; encourage growth of the pupil population and support in staff recruitment and retention.


Governors operate within the remit of a Scheme of Delegation which can be downloaded from the Trust website at
