Executive Headteacher Recruitment

Dear Parent/Carer,

Executive Headteacher Recruitment

I am pleased to advise you that we have been successful in our recruitment for an Executive Headteacher for the Bilton Community Federation and will be welcoming Ed Newton as our new Executive Headteacher, across all three schools, from 1 January 2023.

The plans we communicated to you for the leadership of our schools from September remain the same:

● Bilton Infant School – Mrs Harris, Headteacher

● Bawnmore Community Infant School – Mrs Davey, Acting Headteacher; following the retirement of Mrs Wade at the end of the summer term.

● Bilton Junior School – Mrs Webb, Acting Headteacher

We have asked Ed to work with the existing leadership team, across each of our schools, to identify, develop, and grow the talent and experience that already exists. His new role will further support our ambition for the federation to be united in building an ambitious learning community for Bilton that provides an effective curriculum from EYFS to KS2.

During the autumn term, we hope there will be opportunities for Ed Newton to attend events across our schools, allowing him to start engaging with our community, as part of his induction.

I am sure you would all like to know more about our new executive leader, so I have asked Ed to offer a brief introduction, please see his introductory statement. 

The governing body and I are delighted to welcome Ed to the Bilton Community Federation and know that you will also offer him a warm welcome.

If you have any questions, that our leadership teams cannot answer, then please contact me, via email:

Yours sincerely,


Bethan Cullen

Chair of Governors
