Meet the Governors

Shola Salako, Chair of the Local Governing Board and Safeguarding Link

I became interested in education when I was co-opted onto a parent staff committee at my daughter’s school. She has since left school and as I wanted to continue my involvement I applied to be a local authority governor.  I was accepted and have been a governor at Rosendale for over five years.
The role remains interesting and absorbing.  I hope to be given the opportunity to continue to be of service to Rosendale and provide a valuable contribution.

Shola’s term of office expires 30 September 2025.

Caroline Gray, Vice-Chair of the Local Governing Board and SEND Link

I currently work in a General Practice in Vauxhall and for a Mental Health project for the Clinical Commissioning Group.  Whilst my background is not in education I do have a real understanding of life in Lambeth having lived and worked here for the last 16 years and I hope that skills I bring coupled with my enthusiasm and commitment will allow me to make a real contribution to the school and its community.

Caroline’s term of office expires 31 October 2025

Mark Creelman, Parent Governor

I have 3 children at Rosendale with my partner Darren. They are currently in Nursery, Year 1 and Year 2.  I’m a qualified social worker and have worked in the public sector for 25 years. I am Managing Director of an NHS organisation with a turnover of £130m. I believe in the power of strong governance and want the development of the school to be fully inclusive and participative of parents with the child at the centre of all we do.

Mark’s term of office expires 30 November 2023.

Rebecca Rae, Parent Governor

With children in Reception and Year 2 at Rosendale, I want every pupil to have a great, well-rounded education. I bring experience of policy research and analysis from the local government and charity sectors, and have often worked with boards, including as a patient representative. I have been part of a scrutiny team, supporting elected Members to hold organisations in London to account. In challenging times for education, I want to represent the voice of parents as we ensure that Rosendale keeps its ethos as an academically successful school but also a warm and caring community.

Rebecca’s term of office expires 30 November 2023.

Biba Stanton, Parent Governor

I have two boys at Rosendale, as well as a toddler who already enjoys being part of the school community.   As an NHS doctor, I have an understanding of governance and have experience of chairing a national committee.  I am passionate about the importance of gender equality in schools, and about using positive strategies to combat bullying.

Biba’s term of office expires 30 November 2023.

Matt Ellis, Staff Governor

Matt’s term of office expires 31 December 2025.

Alice Maurizi, Governor

I am an economist specialised in labour markets and education. I have worked in the Civil Service for the past 5 years covering a series of roles related to welfare, migration, trade, education and skills – building up experience in policy and analysis in different government departments. Having lived in Lambeth since moving to London, I am very excited to have the opportunity to support the school and help the community.

Alice’s term of office expires 04 September 2026
