This is an exciting and unique opportunity to be the Principal of a thriving and expanding primary school located between Findern and Mickleover, and 4 miles south west of Derby.

This position offers the chance to work with:

• A diverse and inclusive school at the centre of a newly built community

• A body of children who are happy and who enjoy coming to school

• A visionary, successful and outward facing MAT

We opened in September 2020, in a brand new building, initially housing nursery and reception age children only. We now have classes from nursery to year 3 and will be accommodating all year groups by summer 2026. We pride ourselves on our ‘Rainbow’ values of ‘respect, achieve, inspire, nurture, belong, open and well-being’.

Our recent Ofsted report celebrated our strengths in a number of areas which were graded as good. Our principal is relocating for September 2023 so we are looking for an experienced and inspiring individual who can oversee the next phase of our journey towards outstanding when we are next inspected.
