Deputy Headteacher – Arboretum Primary School

Salary: Leadership scale, point 16-20

Contract:  Full-time, Permanent.  Required September 2020

Closing date:  12 noon Friday 28th February 2020

Interview:  Wednesday 18th  March 2020

The Governors of Arboretum Primary School are looking to appoint an inspirational, forward-thinking Deputy Head Teacher to help lead our popular, diverse and welcoming Primary School in the heart of Derby.

Arboretum is a proud member of Derby Diocesan Academy Trust ( and enjoys a positive relationship with a team of professionals providing effective support in school improvement and operations.

At Arboretum, children are at the heart of all our work and our priority is to deliver high quality teaching and learning whilst at the same time providing rich and enjoyable learning experiences. Everything we do as a school is to ensure that the children ‘reach for the stars’ and achieve their very best: it is our job to ensure that they all reach for the highest levels of personal achievement and development.  We want every child to be successful; to reach for the stars from the very first day they join us so that when they leave us, they have a love of learning for the rest of their lives.

Are you already an experienced senior leader within a primary school, and eager for a new and stimulating challenge? You will be excited about operating in an environment where your ideas and enthusiasm can be directed to help develop the school as well as have an impact across a vibrant and growing Multi-Academy Trust.

You are an enthusiastic and adaptable leader who:

  • Has regard and respect for the experiences, knowledge and cultural diversity that every child brings to school and use this as a foundation for improving standards;
  • Values the achievements of all children and provides opportunities to develop self-confidence and a positive self-image;
  • Provides a supportive culture in which all staff are encouraged to extend, develop and share their expertise;
  • Offers all children equal access to the curriculum and all aspects of school life; where individual differences are appreciated, celebrated, understood and accepted;
  • Encourages children to become good citizens holding British values, by developing caring attitudes, tolerance and respect towards themselves, other children, adults, their school and their community.

In return we can offer you:

  • Well behaved, delightful pupils who are eager to learn and immensely proud of their school;
  • A truly dedicated and exceptionally talented team, who work hard to make Arboretum the success it is;
  • A commitment to continued professional development;
  • A supportive Academy Trust and active Local Governing Body;
  • A dynamic and creative environment which supports and enhances our vision and ethos.

Arboretum is a Good school, as confirmed at our last Ofsted short inspection (November 2017). The inspectors felt that: “The pupils’ positive attitudes to learning and their respectful behaviour reflect the school’s values and the leaders’ good work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare”.

We are a large 635 place primary (which includes 32 children in our 2 year old unit and 78 in our 3 year old nursery), with a rich ethnic mix of delightful and well-behaved children.  Our modern school has recently been refurbished and extensively extended and sits in large attractive grounds.  We pride ourselves on our caring ethos and the value we place in our dedicated and friendly staff teams.  We are a popular school, and have a waiting list for most year groups.

An informal visit to the school is warmly encouraged and recommended.  The Head Teacher is available for visits on Friday 14th February at 4pm or Tuesday 25th February at 2pm or 4pm.  Please contact the school office on 01332 291140 if you would like to book onto one of these visits.
