START DATE:                    1st September 2024

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Class Teacher to join our experienced team at Bishop Aldhelm’s CE Primary School, part of Hamwic Education Trust (HET).

HET is a large, fast-paced Trust with currently 35 academies across the South Coast. Linked to 6 community-based partnerships, there are 32 primary academies, 2 secondary and 1 hospital school.

In February 2022 OFSTED judged our school to be Good, confirming all judgements from our July 2015 inspection. In November 2023 we received a very successful SIAMS Inspection. 





At Bishop Aldhelm's our vision is ‘Loved By God; United in Learning.' Loved by God reflects our theological underpinning with our vision centred on Psalm 23. 'The Lord is our shepherd, we have everything we need.' is the foundation of our Bishop Aldhelm's values of love, courage, unity and inspiration. 

United in Learning reflects our educational underpinning. As with 'Loved By God', 'United in Learning' applies to all members of our school community. As a staff team, we work towards 5 pillars that enhance our professional culture: effective communication, culture of challenge, everyone's a learner, collective responsibility, psychological safety. By focusing on these 5 pillars throughout our practice, we benefit the learning and experiences for all at Bishop Aldhelm's. 

Bishop Aldhelm’s Primary is a school with high expectations and standards. We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, committed and inspiring Teacher to join our hard-working, dedicated, happy team of staff and children. It would be desirable, not essential, for the applicant to have experience in Early Years and KS1 but applications from those in the KS2 sector and Early Career Teachers are also welcomed.

These are very exciting times at Bishop Aldhelm’s CE Primary School as we are continually looking to develop our team to build capacity as we grow, embracing this opportunity that has arisen due to promotion.

If you are ready for a new challenge and enjoy working with an organisation where no day will be the same, then please apply.
