Vision & Values
Seymour Park Community Primary School has a clear vision for the future of our school and the education of our children. Our vision is a promise to our children and is best summed up by our motto:
Making a World of Difference.
We believe education matters and changes lives. We empower our children to make a difference in their own lives, the life of their community, and in our world. At Seymour Park we provide our children with an education that makes a world of difference.
Our vision is founded on our core values and our commitment to children's rights as a proud UNICEF Rights Respecting School.
We are a vibrant, diverse school family where everyone is welcomed, valued and treated with fairness.
We nurture, support and show compassion in all that we do; placing children at the heart of our school family.
We have limitless ambitions for every member of our school family as we learn, develop and thrive together.
Seymour Park Community Primary School is proud to be a GOLD UNICEF Rights Respecting School. Children’s rights are learned and lived here.
Our values and our commitment to children's rights determine how we work together to achieve our vision. They embody who we are as a school and underpin every decision we make. They guide us, ground us and bind us together as ONE school family. A school family making a world of difference.
To ensure Seymour Park Community Primary School achieves its vision of making a world of difference, our governors set long-term school improvement goals. These goals form our Strategic Plan for the next five years and can be found here:
