Headteacher - Easingwold Community Primary School


Dear Applicant

Thank you very much for taking an interest in the position of Headteacher at Easingwold Community Primary School. I hope that you will find the information provided a useful introduction to our school and that you will take the opportunity to apply for the post.

Our governors are seeking to appoint a leader who will build on the school’s many strengths. We are a caring, inclusive school, that our pupils, staff, parents, governors and our community are proud of. Our school motto 'Excellence For All' reflects the work we do. It epitomises the attitudes we foster towards one another; captures the pride in which we take in all aspects of our work and illustrates the inclusive nature of our teaching and wider school ethos.

We wish to appoint a Headteacher who will continue to take our school forward. In the changing educational environment, there will be many exciting challenges ahead. The school has the benefit of a supportive governing body and good links with the community and other stakeholders.

In terms of challenges, we are looking to improve our performance and to build on our current Ofsted rating of Good. To do this, we require the new headteacher to continue the development of our staff and deliver further progress in our SATs results.

I would encourage you to come and visit in advance of your application and see for yourself the enthusiasm that our pupils have for their education.  Such a visit is not part of the selection process and whether or not applicants have visited will not influence the final outcome.

If you would like the opportunity to visit, please email Steve Cooper at North Yorkshire County Council or call him on 01609 536578. Steve will also be happy to answer any questions you might have.

I hope you find the information provided useful and informative and that it will encourage you to apply. On behalf of the governing body, thank you again for your interest in Easingwold Community Primary School.

Yours faithfully,

David Linsley


Chair of Governors
