What skills and experience we're looking for

The Federation of Riders Infants and Junior Schools is looking to recruit an Executive Headteacher for January 2025.

We want our new Executive Headteacher to further develop our inclusive culture so that children have opportunities to thrive and flourish in their personal, social and academic lives.

Our new Executive Headteacher needs to be an effective communicator and good listener, able to build mutually respectful relationships where people are valued, as they lead our Federation through a period of significant change together.

We want a leader who builds collective ambition for every child, who unlocks opportunity so that children can experience achievement, regardless of barriers.

What the school offers its staff

We want our new Executive Headteacher to stand together with our community; to be visible and approachable to parents, carers and the wider community and to develop positive and trusting relationships.

In return we can offer you a school community that is vibrant, enthusiastic and engaged. Where children are appreciative of the opportunities they receive and where parents want only what is best for their children. Where building trusting relationships is paramount.

A staff team who care deeply for the children in their care and are committed to using all avenues available to them both internally and in the wider community to improve the outcomes of the children.

Also we offer a committed and supportive Governing Body and an established team of Senior Leaders who use evidence informed research to improve practice and drive progress for all in the school community.
