The Hanham Primary Federation seeks excellence in all it does.  We have an opportunity for an inspirational and innovative leader to join the Federation and take us on the next part of our journey to ‘Outstanding’.

From September 2021 a new Executive Headteacher of Samuel White’s Infant and Hanham Abbots Junior Schools is required to lead our two Schools and their teaching and non-teaching teams. You must be able to innovate and develop excellent systems of learning to further improve the outcomes for our pupils. 

The Federation Board is very keen to hear from education leaders who have demonstrable experience of school improvement with a positive approach to SEND provision.  We are known across Local Authorities as SEND positive and we wish to continue offering this provision.

The role is a part-time (three days per week) for a fixed term of two years.  The Federation Board are keen to explore its current status and will require the new Executive Headteacher to consider the range of options available for the future of the Federation whilst putting the interests of its pupils and local community first. 

Applicants with recent senior leadership, Ofsted, HMI or school improvement consultancy experience will be enthusiastically considered.  The Federation Board is looking to recruit from a varied pool of candidates that bring with them particular skills and attributes.

We look forward to hearing from you for an informal conversation with either the Federation Leadership Team or our Chair of the Federation Board.

Hanham Primary Federation is a popular school located between Bristol and Bath. We have happy children, very supportive parents, a strong Senior Leadership Team and an enthusiastic, friendly and skilled staff team.
