See what’s happening at our Seymour Road Academy
Wise Owls Trust is among one of the first in the country to be awarded the ‘School of Character Kitemark plus’ in recognition of best practice in developing good character in young people.
The RESPECT curriculum at three Manchester primary schools has seven tenets of character education at its heart and is brought to life for pupils by the exciting Mission Mondays. Sophie Murfin explains all…
Next Tuesday afternoon (22nd January) we start the Parentgym workshops at Seymour Road. These will enable you to meet other parents, develop your parenting skills and it’s all for FREE! If you would like more information, please speak to the office or Mrs Willott. To read more news from Seymour Road Academy, click here.
Sign up and keep abreast of latest developments and educational initiatives across our trust and academies.
Our children returned from a residential and came straight to my office to ask when they would be doing the ‘Mission’ that they had missed! It’s brought a whole new sense of excitement to the school.
Children that have previously been dis-engaged in their learning have been re-ignited and inspired. Monday’s have become Mission Monday’s and is the perfect start to the learning week, not just for the children but also the staff!
Chris described our new RESPECT curriculum as ‘transformational to the life chances of our children, preparing them for future challenges.
Debbie Frater believes that the new approach to the curriculum will have a huge impact across all classrooms.
The children take part in interesting and fun missions. I hear all about it at home.
My daughter enjoys the missions and working in her special mission book.
I like the different homework options for my child’s homework. I think its great that they get a choice and they always want to do their homework!
You never get anything from Baz about his day in school but he got a postcard home about his curriculum work. I thought it was a really nice touch. It made him really pleased too!
They seem to learn really interesting stuff now not like your normal curriculum stuff. I have 3 children in school, all a year apart so previously I have known what is coming but that’s not been the case this year. Eesa loves learning about the Queen she comes home every night saying do you know…… She seems to have a new fact everyday!
I have noticed a difference in Millie. With Millie you have to really hook her in and this new curriculum has really got her hooked. There’s been a massive amount of change in school and it all gets a big thumbs up from us. I think the school is great now!
