The Seymour Park Experience

The Seymour Park Experience is OUR CURRICULUM. It is the entire planned learning experience we offer every child at our school; a rich, ambitious and relevant curriculum which is MAKING A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE. 

Through the Seymour Park Experience our children will grow as SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EMPOWERED INDIVIDUALS and RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS. This commitment is founded on our core values of CARE, RESPECT and GROWTH and on our pledge to be a UNICEF RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL.

The Seymour Park Experience is a knowledge-based curriculum rooted in the National Curriculum for England. It is carefully tailored for our school family and informed by our evidence-based understanding of great learning and great teaching. This makes the Seymour Park Experience relevant to our children’s needs and our community, with the highest aspirations for all. To help achieve this, we have three threads which run throughout every part of our Seymour Park Experience.

Oracy

We place all aspects of language development at the heart of our curriculum and help every child find their voice. 

Children’s Rights

Children’s rights are learned and lived here. Our children grow to understand the universal rights they share with every other child, empowering our children to understand the power of their voice and being aspirational with their big ideas

21st Century Learning

We provide our children with the tools and experiences to make their voice heard and thrive in the 21st Century. This means understanding themselves as learners, being prepared for the digital century and growing a healthy body and mind. 

These threads weave through all subjects within our ambitious and thoughtfully designed curriculum, along with the whole-school and outside the classroom opportunities we offer.

Capture

This is how we ensure our children thrive. We are proud of the outstanding young people who leave our school, ready to make a world of difference to their own lives, their community and the world.
