Assistant Principal - Director of Inclusion

Derby Moor Academy and Sixth FormDerby

Derby Moor Academy is a vibrant, oversubscribed, 11 - 18, school with 1,586 students on roll. We are a thriving community offering our students a range of opportunities that ensure they become successful and well-rounded adults when they enter the world of work.  At Derby Moor we are rightly proud of the excellent progress that all our students make and have celebrated record results year on year in recent times. Our approach can be summed up in our school motto: “Together we succeed”. This motto is underpinned by our four values:

Achievement – we believe that every student, regardless of background or personal circumstance can achieve.

Aspiration – we believe that strong achievement is grounded in the best teaching and learning experience which ensures that all students will aspire to be the best they can be.  We are committed to continuing professional development so that all staff members are supported to be the best they can be.

High Expectations – we have high expectations of students, both in terms of achievement and behaviour.

Community – we create and support a sense of belonging so that all members of the school community feel valued and are kept safe.

Following the promotion of the current post holder, we are looking for an ambitious, experienced leader to fill the role Director of Inclusion. The vacancy offers great potential for career development and will involve strategic oversight of an excellent SEN team alongside the development of wider provision and planning of a new inclusion building. Our wider provision is part of an exciting project to further meet the needs of all members of our student body. This incorporates an innovative provision for students who cannot access mainstream education, a turnaround provision for students with acute SEMH needs, wider services including family support and youth worker teams alongside in-school counselling services. We have a genuinely inclusive approach to education and aim to support all our students, regardless of start point or need, to fulfil their potential and become successful young adults. We welcome applications from existing senior leaders or those with experience of SEN leadership who are looking to make their first step into a senior role.

Please note there is an opportunity at the end of the application form to upload a covering letter which should be no longer than 2 sides of A4 and will be an opportunity to detail your experiences, achievements and your educational ethos. You are not required to complete the ‘Personal Statement’ section of the application as the letter will cover this aspect.
