Alex Shaw

My name is Alex Shaw and I am the newest member of  the School Governor team.  I have 2 children at Rosliston CE Primary School in Reception and Year 2.  I have lived in the area for almost 10 years and am very appreciative of the richness that the school brings to the community.  I am a qualified engineer with experience working in both design and operational roles at a large, Derby based company.  I have a passion for celebrating successes whilst not losing sight of areas for improvement and helping develop realistic plans to achieve defined goals.

Along with my wife and two children we have a passion for helping children in care and are foster carers for young children who need a helping hand in their early years.
