Job Description

Hamford Primary Academy is a vibrant school within Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) that is developing a curriculum relevant for the 21st century. Over the last four years the academy has undergone a significant transformation with a learning community grounded in our core framework (vision, mission, values and colleague pledges). In addition we place great emphasis on developing children’s character in order to prepare them for the challenges that lie ahead in both their education and life. As a result, the six Hamford characteristics of be responsible, be curious, be resilient, have integrity, be compassionate and be reflective, are explicitly taught and embedded through the assemblies and learning opportunities provided across the curriculum.

Hamford Primary Academy has been chosen to provide a primary enhanced provision for children with ASD in North East Essex. The purpose built provision will provide for up to 8 high functioning pupils aged 4 to 11 years to enable them to access mainstream provision. This is an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to lead this exciting new venture working alongside our Inclusion Manager. We are looking to appoint a highly motivated and inspirational practitioner who has proven experience with children with ASD.

We encourage visits from prospective candidates to meet members of our school community and to experience our school at first hand. If you would like to do this, please contact our Business Manager, Peter Hamblin at or by phone on 01255 673415.

As the sponsor, AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners – to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them. In each of our academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes. You will also be entitled to the following benefits: a health cash plan, vehicle affinity scheme, Cycle2work, childcare vouchers and Westfield rewards.

This position is required to commence January or February 2017.

Closing date: Friday 11 November 2016.

Interviews are scheduled to take place on Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 November 2016.

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early should we receive an overwhelming response. All candidates are advised to refer to the job description and person specification before making an application.
