Dear Headteacher Applicant

Welcome to Whitley & Eggborough Community Primary School.

On behalf of the Governing Body, thank you for your interest in the position of Headteacher.

Following the well deserved promotion of our long standing Headteacher, the governors are seeking to appoint a person who can continue to advance our school.


The current Headteacher’s vision and leadership has ensured Whitley and Eggborough Community Primary School is already making great steps forwards in innovative teaching and learning, as well as outcomes, which ensured we received a Good judgement  at our latest Ofsted visit in January this year. To continue our reputation for success by developing helpful well rounded, caring, and sharing pupils , we want to recruit a new dynamic Headteacher who is as passionate about raising standards and teaching and learning as they are about being a committed leader. You will need to be both people and pupil orientated, bringing the best out of an already highly motivated, caring, enthusiastic and well regarded team of staff and pupils. We are proud of our school environment where there is mutual respect so that each child develops a lifelong love of learning.


Whitely & Eggborough Community Primary School is a successful, friendly, community village school surrounded by beautiful open landscapes. The school is supported by a committed, pro-active governing body and benefits from an active Parent Teacher Association. Located just south of Selby, the school serves a number of villages and boasts great transport links with convenient access to the region’s motorway network.


We wish to appoint a Headteacher who will empower our staff, build on our positives and drive improvement.  In the changing educational environment, there will be many exciting challenges ahead. The school has the benefit of a positive, strong and supportive governing body, as well as a growing population base.


I would encourage you to visit our school in advance of your application and see our happy, confident and enthusiastic children thriving in our school’s stimulating and exciting environment for yourself. 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 Diane Steward, School Business Manager on 01977 661247 to make an appointment or email:


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 Whitley & Eggborough Community Primary School.

Yours faithfully,


Liz Ridley

Chair of Governors
