Closing date: 9.00 am Monday 26th February 2018

We are looking to appoint two hard working, enthusiastic Teachers with drive and energy to join our happy, lively, forward looking and successful school. In return, we can offer you high quality professional development and the opportunity to be part of a team of teachers who regularly share best practice and learn from each other. The posts are temporary, to cover maternity leave, with one in Foundation Stage 2 and one in Key Stage 2.


Arboretum is a Good school, as confirmed at our recent 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 643 place primary (which includes 40 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 in 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.


Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is embedded across everything we do at Arboretum, including all stages of our recruitment and selection process. The successful candidate will require enhanced DBS clearance.


An informal visit to the school is warmly encouraged and welcomed. Please call the school Office on (01332) 291140 to find out more information.

Please send a covering letter and your completed application form to by the closing date.
