Mrs Helen O’Brien (Headteacher)
Mr John Green
I started work as a Science teacher at a small school in Barnsley in September 1993. I arrived at Rawmarsh in 2001 and have been a member of staff at the school ever since.
I am married to Louise who is also a teacher, and have two children currently at primary school. I live on the outskirts of Sheffield although I am originally from Haydock, a village between Manchester and Liverpool. I care deeply about the young people of our school and the wider community in general and I hope that being appointed to the Governing body at Rawmarsh will allow me to support the Leadership Team in moving the school forward over the coming years.
Mrs Anette Burton
I am the Year 6 teacher and Deputy Head at Rawmarsh Sandhill Primary (which is also part of the WPT).
Mr Chris Wainwright
Since leaving University in 2005 I have always worked in Education performing a number of different roles with different responsibilities. I was appointed at Rawmarsh Community School as Student Progress Leader in 2011 with one of my key objectives being to take a lead role within the pastoral support team.
Having worked at Rawmarsh for over 6 years I care greatly for all stakeholders who are involved with ensuring that our students get the best possible opportunities to progress as young people.
The opportunity of becoming a member of the governing body is personally a very exciting one, it will give me the chance to not only give a greater insight to existing members of the daily work that is completed at Rawmarsh but will also allow me to experience other aspects of running a secondary school.
Mrs Caroline Langston
Manager of The High Street Centre Ltd in Rawmarsh since 2005. Before that, I was a Training and Change Manager for HSBC.
Married with two children who both attended Rawmarsh schools and then RCS. Our son is now a University and our daughter is studying for her A-levels. I have worked with charity Trustees since joining High Street Centre and am looking forward to working with the other Governors at RCS.
Mr Matthew Turton (Associate Headteacher)
Mrs Judy Oldale (Chair of Governors)
Judy has had a long and successful career within Rotherham Council. Rising from a Nursery teacher at Anston Brook Infant School where she worked for 19 years, to Deputy Head and finally Headteacher at Rawmarsh Children’s Centre for a further 19 years. Her retirement 3 years ago has given her the opportunity to move into a different role as a school Governor and support RCS.
Mrs Margaret Saltis
Margaret has worked at Rawmarsh Community School in a variety of roles since 2001, now Margaret is currently supporting literacy intervention within the library. She has been a non-teaching governor for the last four years and is keen to support the school through their development into an outstanding school. Working with the students in school has given Margaret an excellent insight into the ways they can be well motivated and to always aim high.
Mrs Michelle Smith
Michelle worked for Rotherham MBC for nearly 28 years in a wide range of areas dealing with HR issues, most recently in Education (8 years).
Married with a daughter studying at University, Michelle was previously a parent governor at both the Primary and Secondary schools her daughter attended. She has gained a good understanding of the role f the Governing Body and is committed to ensuring Rawmarsh Community School continues to make progress and achieve the recognition it deserves.
Mr Tom Downes
I worked as a secondary science teacher for 6 years until relocating from Dorset to South Yorkshire in 2018. Since then I have worked for tes Global as an Education Consultant. Having worked as a classroom teacher and now visiting a wide variety of schools on a regular basis, I am very happy I can use this knowledge and experience in my role as Governor at Rawmarsh.
