Our Vision

Our Vision:


We always try to be that little bit better.


At Seaburn Dene, no dream is too big and no dreamer is too small. Children at our school are encouraged to aim high and know that to achieve something extraordinary, your mindset needs to match your aspirations: through hard work and determination, anything is possible.

Our Ethos:


Our warm, caring ethos is underpinned by our four core values.

We are proud to be a family-centered community with a strong culture of togetherness.  All members of our school are expected to show respect and kindness to one another. We celebrate good manners, honesty and a determination to work hard. We are committed to fostering an environment where children are happy, confident, independent and have the aspiration to be the very best they can be.

Our Aims:


Our school aims to create kind and well-rounded global citizens, supported by a rich, experiential curriculum that will allow engagement in the highest quality learning experiences.

That the wider curriculum is valued and provides creativity and challenge alongside a rigorous approach to maths and English. Together these provide opportunities for children to fully explore their passions and develop their future aspirations.

To nurture a growth mindset and develop a culture of determination: We learn from our mistakes and have the resilience to bounce back when times are tough.

To have high expectations for all within our community and ensure that we demonstrate the very best standards of respect and integrity.


Our Curriculum Drivers:



The creative arts build confidence and help children learn and apply their understanding. Through regular exposure to and engagement with music, art, dance and drama, our children are given the opportunity to put their imagination to work.


In today's global world, it is important to be connected locally, nationally and internationally. Our children learn about and through the world around them. With our extensive grounds, proximity to the beach and a fantastic community, our children's aspirations are not limited to their own future plans, but include ambition for their own local area.


Physical education and being active are key to encouraging and laying not only the foundations for a healthy lifestyle for children's futures, but in delivering our core values.


Science, combined with technological skills, prepare children for a future in which they are encouraged to be curious about the world around them - start small, dream big.
