Welcome Message from the Head Teachers

As Co Head Teachers, we would like to welcome you to our school.

We value highly the positive relationships we build between children, parents, staff, governors and our local community. We want each child to have special and happy memories of their time here. The school is a happy, stimulating and caring place and we expect high standards of behaviour and good manners. We are highly ambitious for all of our children and there is a driving determination to ensure that pupils and adults in the school reach their full potential. We offer a rich and varied curriculum, including high quality arts and music provision, partner school links with other countries, a successful football team and a wide range of after school and community events and activities.

We are proud of our school. The high standard of our provision has been recognised through a range of external awards:

  • Healthy Schools Award
  • Enabling Enterprise (Network School)
  • International Schools’ Award
  • Artsmark (Triple Gold)
  • Sing Up Award (Silver)

We hope our career page and school website gives you a flavour of Seely. 

We look forward to meeting you.

Fair Workload School


We are all thrilled to be part of this new and exciting venture. As a school community we have a lot to look forward to over the coming terms.

We extend a particularly warm welcome to those of you new to Seely and hope you soon feel part of the family. 

If you see a job advert with the Fair Workload Logo, that School has signed up to the Charter. This means that you can expect: a fair and reasonable workload high-quality training and professional development opportunities that meet the needs of individual members of staff a pay and rewards package at least that of the national agreement for teachers, and the Local Authority pay scale for support staff.

The Fair Workload Charter sets out what teachers and other staff can expect from the schools that sign up to participate. This includes adopting schemes such as the ‘five-minute lesson plan’ model and the marking policy clarifying what will and won’t be marked. Schools should also ensure teachers get access to Continuous Professional Development and that Teaching Assistants are supported to progress to Qualified Teacher Status where they choose to do so.
