Welcome from the Chair

Hello, welcome to Seymour Park Community Primary School. Our school has amazing teachers and staff who create a positive culture every day to give each child an opportunity to learn and grow. The consistently high quality of the Seymour Park experience never fails to impress me. Our school is a hugely important part of local life and takes its responsibility to provide for a diverse community very seriously. As governors, it's our job to make sure Seymour Park continues to be the best it can be. So, if you have any questions, please do get in touch.

Chair of Governors

Seymour Park Community Primary Governance 

Governors have responsibility for the effective management of the school, working within the frameworks set out by Trafford Local Authority and national legislation. 

Governors have a key role to play in helping our school to provide the best possible education for all our children; an education that makes a world of difference.  With their help, we can all raise standards and ensure that every child in our school achieves their full potential. Each year we review our effectiveness and the report for 2019 can be found here: 

Governors Handbook 2019/20Minutes & Head Teachers Reports

The governing body consists of the Headteacher, a member of the school staff, LA representatives, members co-opted from the local community and parent governors.  Each governor serves a four-year term and if you are interested in becoming a school governor then please contact the school. On this page, you will find information about the governance at Seymour Park Community Primary School.
