Welcome to Derwent Primary School
“What a warm, friendly school with delightful children.”
I am delighted to be the new Executive Headteacher for Derwent and Southill Schools; all staff are warm, caring and professional and I feel very fortunate to be able to become a part of the federation. Prior to my post as Principal at Elstow School, which I have held for five years, I worked in London for Ark Schools as a Deputy Head.
I know that both Derwent and Southill are in a process of change - to their sites and the pupil body. It's an exciting time for us all and I am really looking forward to being part of the team and the journey to the next stage. I know both schools are already graded 'Good' by Ofsted and both have ambitions to reach Outstanding. The leadership team is dedicated and determined and I am really looking forward to working with them on the next steps to excellence.
Please enjoy finding out about our school on our website. If you would like to arrange a visit we would be delighted to arrange this for you by contacting the School Office. Alternatively, please see a link to our internal virtual tour here https://tours.e4education.co.u
I look forward to meeting you all very soon!
Sam Barlow, Executive Headteacher
