Staff List

The entire staff of Hunters Hall Primary School is central to the success of everything that happens on a daily basis. They are a very enthusiastic and emphatic group of people who all care for the well-being, education and future of all our children. Each person performs a role that is essential to the smooth running of our school community; a vital piece of the jigsaw that creates the diverse but warm and inclusive atmosphere of our school.

The leadership and management of Hunters Hall Primary School has many strands. Michael Kaitell, headteacher, leads a team of five other experienced senior leaders who all have a series of responsibilities such as Teaching and Learning, Safeguarding, Inclusion, and School Business Management. The next layer of leadership comprises of wider leaders who lead year groups and specific subject areas. The administration team deal with the myriad of finance, admissions and data, along with the day to day interaction with parents and children with admin & school-based queries.

Over-seeing all of this is the Governing Body, who after reconstitution in 2019, comprises of thirteen members. The Governing Body has the important task of supporting and holding the school to account. They have a formal meeting at least once each half-term and show an active interest in all areas of school.
