We would like to extend a warm welcome to any one who is browsing our web site.  We are a small rural primary school for children from 5 years old to 11 years old.  We also have a pre-school onsite for children aged 2 ½ years old to school age.

The school is set in an idyllic village in East Devon in between the town of Exmouth and the city of Exeter and is close by major access routes to the M5 and the city centre. We currently have 65 children on roll, split into 3 classes.    Numbers in the classes fluctuate according to the year group size. The school has strong links with the church and adheres to the tenets and beliefs of the Church of England.

The school has a strong School Association which supports the school through fund raising and social events for the children. Parents are welcome to work in the classes with their children and to support in any way that they can.  This is coordinated through the class teacher.

The school is a member of the Devon Arts in School Initiative and has a long tradition of excellence in the performing arts.  In 2005, we celebrated our 300th year birthday with an arts week with several artists in residence.  This culminated in a performance of song, dance and felt making.  If you are interested in joining our community please do not hesitate to contact the school on 01392 873629 or at

Diane Boyden, Acting Headteacher



Lady Seaward's Church of England Primary School aims to:

  • provide a foundation which will give all pupils the opportunity to develop their full potential
  • show consideration for others at all times and develop an understanding of tolerance and harmony
  • provide a caring and supportive environment which offers security and a sense of belonging
  • encourage the involvement of parents in school activities


The school enjoys a wide range of resources. The school itself provides a wealth of historical interest. Within this is the library and Internet access for all children within a secure and safe environment. There are two playground areas (one for infants/pre-school children and one for juniors) and a wildlife garden with a bird hide. We also have use of the village cricket field for outside sports.


For our community at Lady Seaward's Church of England Primary School we want:

  • the beliefs and teaching of the Christian Faith to be at the centre of all that we do
  • to create an environment which is safe, happy, secure and caring and which promotes successful learning
  • to develop good communication between home, children, staff and governors
  • every child in our care to reach their full potential
  • to follow an agreed code of behaviour for adults and children
  • to use our time effectively
  • to help children develop the ability to take responsibility for their own learning
  • to give children a sound foundation of basic skills so that they can make full use of a wide and varied education
  • to recognise the individual needs of all our children and to provide a continuous and progressive curriculum that covers the requirements of the national curriculum
  • to assess children's progress fairly and consistently and to use these assessments to plan their future lessons
  • to provide appropriate pastoral care for all.



The Governors of Lady Seaward's C of E Primary School will admit up to the Planned Admission Number (PAN) of 12 children in each year group as from September 2007.

They may, however, admit children over and above the PAN if they were satisfied that this would not affect an effective education or efficient use of resources. However they would need to refer to Appendix A of the Primary Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme which sets out how all admitting authorities in Devon deal with children arriving ‘in year’

In the event of the application for admission being refused, parents have the right to appeal to a tribunal set up by the Anglican Diocese of Exeter, and should write to Dr Ruth Eade, Director of Education, Diocesan Education Office, Renslade House, Bonhay Road, Exeter, EX4 3AY.

The law requires every child to be admitted to primary school from the beginning of the term following the child’s fifth birthday as per Devon County Council Policy. The normal year of admission for our School is Reception year.

Children whose fifth birthday falls between 1 September and 28 February may start school in September; children whose fifth birthday falls between 1 March and 31 August may start school in January.

As the school is a voluntary aided one the governing body is the admissions authority. As such it will work to the provisions of the Special Needs (SEN) legislation, which came into force in September 2001 with the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001. The Act strengthens the right to a place in mainstream school for children with special needs or with a disability.


Where there are more applications than places available the following priority will be followed:

  • Children who are in Public Care
  • Children living in the school’s designated area with a sibling who is attending the school at the time of admission.
  • Other children living in the school’s designated area.
  • Children living outside the school’s designated area, but with a sibling who is attending the school at the time of admission.
  • Other children living outside the school’s designated area.


Sibling: This will be a full, adopted half or step brother or sister and will include a full, adopted half or step brother or sister living at a different address. Foster children will count as a brother or sister to those living within the foster household or where appropriate the natural parental home address.

Home Address: This is defined as the address where the child is normally resident. Where a child resides through shared custody, the address will be with the parent who receives child benefit.

Designated area: The map showing the designated area for the school can be seen in the school office.

Children who are in Public Care: These children are looked after by or provided with accommodation in the exercise of its functions by Devon Local Authority or any other local authority, which has informed Devon LEA of its wish to place a child.

A child, who has a statement of Special Educational Needs where the school is named on the statement, will have precedence for a school place.

In the case of a tie-breaker in any category, priority will be given to children living nearest the school as measured by straight line distance using GIS.
