Our Values and Ethos

 

Seaford head is an extremely successful and oversubscribed 11- 18 school. We are committed to ensuring all our children enjoy coming to school and achieve to their full potential. The combination of support and challenge that our staff provide ensures that all our students make outstanding progress and attain the very highest standards. Our students have access to the very latest technologies and work in a friendly, disciplined environment that is designed to meet the demands of the 21st century. 

We have very high expectations with regard to attendance, behaviour and uniform and believe that achievement in all areas of school life should be rewarded and celebrated.  We challenge our students to excel in academic, cultural and sporting activities. 

We are committed to providing an excellent standard of education and a wide range of enrichment opportunities to enable our young people to thrive and develop.  This pursuit of excellence is based on a strong – home partnership and we are constantly looking to find new ways to involve parents in their children’s education.  We work closely with our children and their parents to ensure the school is offering an educational experience that is both engaging and rewarding.

We also encourage our students to become responsible and active citizens who are respectful of others.  Students are rewarded for making a positive contribution to the life of the school and the wider community. Our ethos is encapsulated by our motto “Achieving Excellence Together” and underpinned by a set of values that all members of the school community abide by:
