Thank you so much for the interest in the position of Headteacher at Brandesburton Primary School.
We are advertising this position as our current Head Teacher is moving on to exciting new projects, having driven the school forward for more than a decade with great leadership, hard work, enthusiasm, loyalty and inspired professionalism.
Brandesburton Primary is well established at the heart of our East Yorkshire village and we have over 175 years of history here to be proud of. Having said that, we’re a school of the 21st century – with a modern ethos which has been instilled by the headteacher and her team of very talented staff.
Our curriculum is exciting and fun, our teachers want our children to enjoy learning – right from Foundation Stage until the time they leave us, at the end of Year 6. In addition to learning, we’re proud that our pupils are involved with school sports, art, performance and music. We put ‘being a great ambassador for Brandesburton Primary School’ at the top of the list of essential qualities that our children develop.
So, what are we looking for from you?
Well, our new Head Teacher will be a strong leader. Somebody at home with budgets, data and admin and somebody who will inspire our staff and pupils to even greater heights. You’ll be at least a ‘good’ teacher yourself and comfortable dropping into any of the school’s settings at short notice, as required. You’ll lead by example and be an excellent role model to staff and pupils. You’ll be engaging, sympathetic and very at home dealing with parents and the wider Brandesburton community.
The Governing Body sees itself as an integral part of the school’s success and our new Head Teacher can be assured of our on-going support. We look forward to meeting you and hearing ideas from you which will propel the school forward for the next decade.
We would encourage candidates to visit the school in order to get a feel for our brilliant, modern school in its 175 year old setting. We suggest visiting on either Friday 9th or Friday 16th July. If you’d like to come and see us, please ring the school and speak to Katie Tomlinson to arrange a convenient time.
We would like to thank you again for your interest in the post and we look forward to receiving your application.
Yours sincerely Phil White, Chair of Governors, and the Governor Team
