It is my pleasure to welcome you to Seaford Park Primary School. 

 

Our mission is to provide a contemporary learning environment, involving all members of the school community collaborating and learning together, to achieve quality learning outcomes for all students within a culture of high expectations.

 

At Seaford Park Primary School, our learners are at the centre of our actions and decisions.  We work as a professional learning community to ensure the focus within our classrooms is squarely on our students and how they learn. This involves weekly formalized discussions beginning with the analysis of data, research and sharing of best practice to ensure that every teacher is engaging in continuous professional learning and that every student is taught at their own point of need. 

 

We offer a range of specialist subjects, including Indonesian, Physical Education, Visual Arts, Performing Arts and Science. These subjects, as well as strategically designed teaching and learning programs, allow for the diversity in our students’ learning styles and interests.  Our team is committed to balancing challenge with support for all of our learners. We have well developed partnerships with the Student Support Services, Biala and Ardoch.

 

We value the social nature of learning and provide opportunities for students to collaborate in their learning throughout their day at school.  Empowering students to contribute to their school life through leadership opportunities, including a Junior School Council, promotes a sense of inquiry and curiosity.  This is further enhanced through the involvement of parents and families as vital partners in the education process.  In addition to volunteering in classrooms and on excursions, parents can get involved by joining our School Council and subcommittees. 

 

In 2021, the staff are collaborating on several focus areas.  Our teaching and learning focus is on Mathematics and we are working to further build the engagement of our students through ‘School Wide Positive Behaviour Supports’ (SWPBS).  Our aim is to ensure that our school is connected to all of our families and to the wider Seaford community.

 

I look forward to working with you to provide the best possible educational experience for your child.  In the meantime, please enjoy perusing our school website and feel free to contact me by phoning or emailing the school office if you have any further questions. 

 

Kind regards,

 

Patrick Halpin
