Save St John's Depute Headteacher!
We, the undersigned, urge Fife Council to: Rethink their decision of removing experienced Depute Headteachers from schools, when education is going through continual changes. St John's Primary in Rosyth, currently has a school roll of approx 240 pupils, which can only rise due to both the increases in birth rate and population in the catchment area. If the school had 260 pupils, we would retain the position of Depute Headteacher. Other Primary Schools in Scotland have both a Headteacher and a Depute Headteacher, despite having a smaller school roll. The decision to remove experienced teaching staff can only a have detrimental effect on our children's education and our children should not be made to suffer due to the council's need to save money.
