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).

 I feel privileged to be on the governing body at RCS. I look forward to working with subject leaders in school to further improve the transition from primary to secondary education.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading and spending time with my family.

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.

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.
