Dear prospective applicants
Regretfully, in light of the current national lockdown and school closures, we have made the difficult decision to pause the Headteacher recruitment process at Brunswick Infant School. This decision has been taken after advice from and in consultation with our Local Authority and HR provider. Interviews will not now take place on 22nd and 23rd February 2021. Part of the interview process would normally involve activities and interaction with the children of Brunswick Infant School. The current lockdown situation would therefore prevent us from conducting a full and robust procedure. The health and safety of the children and adults in our school, as well as that of the applicants themselves, is of paramount importance.
At this stage, we are now planning to appoint for a start date of September 2022. If you wish, your application may be kept on hold (unseen) until the Governing Body Selection Panel is in a position to complete shortlisting and continue the recruitment process or it can be deleted (unseen) by the panel. At this stage, we do not know when this will be but we will communicate any change in circumstances with you as soon as we are in a position to do so.
Thank you for your interest in the position of Headteacher. We appreciate the time you have taken to enquire about the school and/or apply for the position.
Chair of Governors
