SDPS Equality Statement September 2018-September 2019


SDPS is dedicated to providing a service to the community of Seaburn Dene that is equitable throughout our school community. We endeavour to achieve this by:


  • Promoting cultural development and understanding via a rich range of experiences, both in and beyond daily school life.
  • Promoting British values-democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and tolerance with those of different faiths and beliefs.
  • Treating everyone fairly and with respect.
  • Tackling any prejudice 
  • We want to make sure that our school is a safe and secure place for everyone
  • We recognise that individuals have different needs, therefore treating people equally does not necessarily mean treating them the same.
  • To carefully monitor pupil progress to identify and reduce gaps between girls and boys and more disadvantaged groups.
  • We aim to make sure that no one is experiences less favourable experiences because of 
    • age
    • ethnicity
    • gender
    • marital of civil partnership
    • religion or belief
    • sexual identity

Seaburn Dene Primary School is a school in which:


The Creative Arts inspire young children;

Links with communities, local and distant, enhance learning;

Physical Education is fundamental to encouraging and laying the foundations for a healthy lifestyle;

Scientific enquiry, combined with technological skills, prepares children for the future.

Growth Mindset:


We are introducing the language of being a ‘Growth Mindset’ school in assemblies and lessons at Seaburn Dene Primary. We believe that when we talk  with children about how they can embrace a 'can do’ attitude or resilience in their learning - and why this is important – pupils develop more of a growth mindset which leads to successful learning attitudes.
