School-based research projects and partnerships

Seymour Park Community Primary School is committed to providing our children with an education that makes a world of difference.

To achieve this aim, we engage in regular school-based research projects to ensure our practise is at the cutting edge. These projects are school-based and carried out in partnership with organisations such as the University of Manchester or the Education Endowment Foundation.
