Headteacher’s welcome: our vision and values
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Seabridge Primary School’s website, which will hopefully give you a flavour of our lovely school.
Seabridge Primary school is situated in Newcastle under Lyme in the Clayton area. It is a popular two form entry school with a 57 place Nursery, offering provision for children from the term following their third birthday.
As an Academy we are proud to be one of the family of primary, special and secondary schools within the Shaw Education Trust, a trust who shares the same ethos and values as ourselves, with children being at the very heart of everything we do and the mutual determination for all of the children and young people in our collective care. We wholeheartedly believe that we can give our children the very best opportunities and secure the best outcomes for them by working in close partnership with our family of schools and yourselves.
We are very proud of our happy and safe school where we aim to ensure we serve our local community by providing an education of the highest quality with a curriculum which is relevant and engaging, and mindful of current events. With our motto ‘Working together to be the best we can’ we place a strong emphasis on ensuring every child is supported and challenged so that they can realise their potential and flourish within a caring, stimulating and purposeful atmosphere. Children lie at the heart of everything we do and every decision within the school is made by firstly considering what is in the best interest of our children.
Seabridge Primary School is a welcoming and creative environment. We believe that our school is an inspiring place which energises learning and encourages children to develop an enquiring mind, a desire for knowledge, high personal expectations and understanding and respect for others. We recognise that secure self-esteem is essential in enabling our children to lead happy and successful futures and we aim to ensure that our pupils leave us as caring, happy, confident and adaptable young people, equipped with good academic skills and well-developed social skills which enable them to be well-prepared for the next phase of their education with resilience, enthusiasm and a passion for learning.
We believe we have a fantastic combination of innovative and exciting features here at Seabridge Primary School which makes it a wonderful place to educate children, where all members of the community work in partnership to achieve the very best for every child. We are fortunate to be able to offer Forest School in our purpose-designed woodland area, food and nutrition in our cookery room and provide a wealth of media opportunities including involvement in our very own radio station – all alongside our core curriculum offer.
At Seabridge children feel valued and parents are welcomed as partners in their child’s education. The most effective education is achieved when teachers and parents work together in a genuine partnership which results in all children being proud of their work, personal achievements and their own school.
