Headteacher - Seaton Primary School


Seaton Primary is forward thinking school aiming to prepare all of our pupils for both their present and future lives through a broad, balanced and exciting education approach which addresses the needs of the whole child.


The school has been through some changes in the last year, including becoming a stand-alone local authority school from a four school federation, with a new governing body from January. This post becomes available as the previous Head left the school at the end of the Summer Term, after four years.

A Deputy Head and an Assistant Head provides a capable and supportive senior team, working with the Headteacher.

The pupils are fantastic – enthusiastic and happy; their parents supportive of the school. The staff team works hard and collectively has achieved a huge amount since the return to face to face education.

Nevertheless, there remains much to be done. We need someone who can the enhance the strong team ethos and team focus on each child to support and challenge them to ‘be the best they can be’.

We need someone who can work with the governing board to look strategically at the needs of the school over time, as well as ensure that the operational running of the school is smooth and effective.

We need someone who will take Seaton Primary School on the journey to enable each pupil to develop a sense of awe, wonder and inquisitiveness around learning and embrace the inspiration that can be found in this local area of outstanding natural beauty, on the Jurassic Coast and the Axe Estuary.

The successful candidate will have a strong understanding of effective and rapid school improvement and always maintain a focus on helping to secure the highest possible outcomes for every child at Seaton Primary School. We also expect our Headteacher to quickly develop effective relationships with parents and the wider education community, and ensure that the school has an integral place in the Seaton community.

In return, we can offer:

  • a wonderful coastal environment in which to work
  • fantastic school environment and facilities
  • happy and enthusiastic learners
  • a friendly, hard working team
  • a strong commitment to your ongoing professional development.


If this has piqued your interest, we would love to hear from you. If you would like to visit the school or informally discuss the post with the Chair or Vice Chair of Governors, or with the Interim Headteacher, please contact the school on 01297 20922 or email:

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
