Job summary

As a result of continued investment by our LEAD Trust, we are looking to recruit an additional teacher (of any curriculum discipline) with a leadership responsibility in the first instance for supporting our curriculum ambition across the school. Future opportunities may then lie within curriculum or achievement teams and will be discussed further with candidates if selected for interview. The ideal candidate will be an energetic and positive professional who can combine their passion for improving standards and has the skill set to enhance a talented and strong middle leadership team. It is likely that you will already have a proven track record of raising standards within your own curriculum area or wider and are ambitious for your own development.

You will be an excellent classroom practitioner with the skills and determination to ensure exciting learning and outstanding progress for students of all abilities. You will possess the energy and enthusiasm to share good practice and to achieve a high standard of education for students leading to excellent outcomes.

Our academy has a great track record and is loved by students with high numbers of families now applying to us as first choice. We are looking for someone to continue to foster and grow this exciting momentum. This is an ideal opportunity for someone looking for their first leadership role with an initial focus across a school or alternatively an experienced leader looking for a new challenge.

Having converted to academy status at the heart of the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust in May 2017, Da Vinci Academy is a rapidly improving and successful secondary school with around 660 students and an increasing school roll. In summer 2019, we were proud to be the most improved Progress 8 school in Derby and this trajectory of improvement has continued. A student centred philosophy is supported by an unwavering commitment to the achievement of successful outcomes for each and every young person. Together with the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust, a strong and clear vision is in place - one team, changing worlds. Our vision is achieved by our purpose of supporting all to Aspire, Believe, Learn, Achieve. This is what we firmly believe in and strive for at all times. The benefit of our close-knit academy community is a real team environment where people genuinely care for each other and where students and staff alike can really shine.
