Headteacher Jon WatsonHeadteacher Jon Watson

 My name is Jon Watson and I am the Head teacher at Carlton in Snaith Community Primary School. I am proud to lead our school – we have a fantastic group of pupils, dedicated staff team and supportive school community.

My philosophy for education is one which is based around the edict of the ‘best by every child’. I hold a strong child-centred approach to teaching, where consistency, praise, encouragement yet challenge are key. I believe that all children are amazing and have unique potential waiting to be unlocked – it is a privilege, as a teacher and a leader, to be able to inspire, enthuse, motivate and nurture children to fully achieve this.

I joined Carlton in Snaith Community Primary School in September 2015, from Welton Primary School, East Riding, after four successful years. I am originally from Sunderland and now live in Doncaster, following seven wonderful years in Dubai, U.A.E I am married and have two wonderful twin girls. I love playing and listening to music and I’m a passionate Ipswich Town fan.

As head teacher I work closely with the Governing Board to help strategically lead the school forward.
