Dear Headteacher Applicant

Thank you very much for taking an interest in the position of Headteacher at Westfield Primary Community 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. I look forward to reading your application.

We are a larger than average primary school situated in Acomb on the west of the city of York, in the Westfield ward. Children and their families are located in a range of council and private housing, both private and rented, from within, and external to, the catchment area.

Our governors are seeking to appoint a leader who will build on the school’s many strengths and take on the challenges we face. The pupils, staff, parents, governors and our community are proud of our school where children are happy, in the main well-behaved and work hard.

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 highly committed, experienced, and loyal team of staff, supportive parents and governing body.

York is a beautiful, thriving city with low unemployment and highly performing tourism, cultural and entertainments industries. Road, rail, bus, car and cycle routes are all very good.

I would encourage you to visit our school in advance of your application and see for yourself the enthusiasm that 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 Carol Pearce, School Business Manager on 01904 555295 or email: to make an appointment.

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 Westfield Primary Community School.

Yours faithfully,

Linda Brook

Chair of Governors

Westfield Primary Community School
