Minehead First School Making sure school matters to every child


Welcome to Minehead First School, part of the West Somerset Academies Trust.


A very warm welcome to our school website!


As Headteacher, working in close partnership with parents, children, governors and the staff, I strive to create a school where every child is enabled to make the absolute best start to their educational journey.


Nelson Mandela once famously said: ‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’ – and for me, this is at the heart of what we are about at Minehead First School.


We provide a caring, stable, intellectually and creatively stimulating environment where all children develop to their full and individual potential. The staff are passionate about ensuring your child’s time at school is happy, productive and successful so that they can move confidently onto the next stage of their education and ultimately make a positive contribution to society as adults.


We aim to raise achievement in all aspects of the curriculum, through developing self-confidence, motivation, self-reliance, creativity and co-operation in all we do.


Minehead First School is committed to equality of opportunity. We value and respect the diversity of our society and aim to set our children on life’s path by teaching compassion, thoughtfulness, understanding and respect for one another’s differences.

I hope you enjoy exploring our website.


Best wishes


Adam Evans
