Headteacher Recruitment

The Diocesan Director of Education (DDE) or a delegated professional should be involved in the recruitment of all Head Teachers of Church Schools. The Diocesan Board of Education Measure 1991, states that the DBE has a statutory responsibility to advise governors of any Church School on any matter. Leicester DBE believe that working with Governors to advise on a Headteacher appointment provides an ideal opportunity to strengthen partnership working and support our schools. The document below outlines how the DBE can work with you at this crucial point for your school.
