Seascale Primary School

Aim High

Peer to Peer, Working with others.

Working Together


Seascale School actively works alongside several small schools in the local area.  Below is a copy of our development plan, which complements the school's own school improvement plan.  We regularly meet as Head Teachers as well as organise coordinator meetings, governor meetings and Administrator meetings to share good practice across the group of small school.
