Staff Appointments

Our guidance for good staff appointments

The appointment information/guidance has been updated to reflect changes in legislation and has been developed in consultation with DBE Services Diocesan Officers.

This updated information/guidance reflects the National Standards for Headteachers and embodies the three key principles of headship namely that the work of headteachers should be: learning centred, focussed on leadership and reflect the highest professional standards.  It also reflects the need for the headteacher to lead by example to ensure that the school demonstrates its Christian ethos.
