Rev. Bruce Johnson
My Name is Revd Bruce Johnson and I am the Team Vicar responsible for four churches in Rosliston, Coton-in-the-Elms, Croxall and Walton-on-Trent. I have been here for just a few months now, after having been ordained four years ago at Derby Cathedral. Prior to that I worked Internationally as an IT Programme/Project Manager for over 25 years but I also have experience of working in High schools and Primary schools, having supported and worked in three schools in pastoral and project-based roles, covering some very exciting school moves and a series of very complex situational needs.
I am married with three grown up children and one grandson. I am very interested in local history, travel and languages (I speak three languages). I am really looking forward to getting to know everybody at Rosliston school better and supporting everybody and the school to achieve their full potential.
NO DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST
I am the Local Authority Governor having been nominated by Derbyshire County Council. I have been a governor for a number of years and have acted as Chair during that time. I am actively involved in the village, serving as a Parish Councillor and member of the Village Hall Management Committee.
I was a Shift Manager at Drakelow Power Station until its closure some years ago, but am now a self-employed Training Consultant working mainly in the electricity sector.

I have taught children from Reception to A-level and feel passionate about helping all children reach their individual potential.
I am currently a manager at a fire protection company and I am also a qualified Forest Schools Practitioner.
I am very much looking forward to being part of Team Rosliston!
