Dear parents and carers,
Appointment of permanent Headteacher for Cliftonville Primary School
You will be aware that, from September 2012, the school has been led by Mr Somers and Mrs Troth. The Governing Body of each of their ‘home’ schools, Hartsdown Academy and St Saviour’s Church of England Junior School, released them for a two-year period. These appointments formally come to an end in July 2014.
The Governing Body at Cliftonville feels that the school is in a much more secure position and the time is right to appoint a permanent Headteacher from September 2014. The advertisement has been placed nationally for the post, with interviews planned for mid-February. Governors, working with the Dane Court Grammar School and King Ethelbert School Trust, are confident that the school will attract some outstanding applicants to continue the school improvement journey.
The School Council run by the children is involved in the recruitment process and as such there have been discussions about a new Headteacher in and around the school.
I wanted to reassure you that the Governing Body are committed to the continued success of Cliftonville Primary School. Whatever the outcome of the recruitment process, continuity of progress and collaboration with other schools, both secondary and primary, will remain our key priorities.
Mrs Claudine Murray
Chair of the Governing Body
