Dear Headteacher Applicant

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

The pupils, staff, parents, governors and our community are proud of our school and we have high expectations of our Headteacher. The atmosphere in school is very friendly and welcoming. Our children are confident, communicative, well-mannered and eager to learn.

Our current Headteacher is retiring at the end of the year. We are seeking to appoint a leader who will build on the school’s many strengths and ensure we continue to be an outstanding school. The role will focus on raising standards and maintaining and developing relationships and collaborations with our education partners and wider community to ensure we meet the needs of all our children.

In the changing educational environment, there will be many exciting challenges ahead. The school has the benefit of a highly committed, experienced, and loyal team of staff, supportive parents and an engaged governing body.

I would encourage you to visit our school in advance of your application and see for yourself the enthusiasm our children 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. Please call  01347 838427 to make an appointment or email School visits ideally to take place week commencing Monday 5 February.

A video has been created by the children to give prospective candidates a feel for the school and a sense of what the children are looking for in a new Headteacher.

On behalf of the governing body, thank you again for your interest in our school.

Yours faithfully 

Mike Sterritt

Chair of Governors
