We are looking to appoint several midday supervisors to join our team.  The successful candidates will work with our large and friendly midday staffing team to ensure that all of our children have happy, healthy and safe lunchtimesThis will involve supervising the children in and around the dining halls, ensuring that they eat healthy, balanced meals; and in the playground, where you will organise and supervise activities to engage the children.  At all times, you will help to maintain the high standards of behaviour that we expect at Arboretum.

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 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.

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”.

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Assessment and testing of candidate’s suitability to work with children is an integral part of our selection process. An enhanced DBS check is also required for successful candidates.
