As the Trust is comprised of both mainstream and specialist provision, admission arrangements do vary and are in line with Local Authority admissions for their locality.

The Sea View Trust prioritises the responsibilty to safeguard and promote the welfare of all our learners, staff and stakeholders.  In accordance with the Education and Inspections Act 2006, and DfE guidance, the Trust provides advice to all the settings to support them in developing their own behaviour policies, including their anti-bullying strategy. Staff should be confident that they will always have the Trustee's support when following this guidance.  Trust principles include:

  1. High standards of behaviour - The Trust believes that high standards of behaviour enable learners to make the best progress in all aspects of their school life.  Staff should be able to teach, role model and promote good learning behaviour.  Behaviour should not jeopardise the health and safety of any member of the school community.
  2. The right to feel safe - All learners, staff and visitors have the right to feel safe at all times in our Trust organisations and be free from the affects of unacceptable behaviour.  There should be a culture of mutual respect between all members of the Trust and wider community.
  3. Inclusivity - The Sea View Trust is an inclusive Trust.  All members of our community should be able to work free from any form of discrimination, harassment or bullying. Each organisation must have a clear and comprehensive anti-bullying statement which includes the 9 protected characteristics.
  4. Home/ Academy Agreements - Parents, Carers and Advocates should be encouraged and helped to support their children's education.  Older students should be helped to understand their responsibilites.  Home/ Academy or College Agreements assist everyone in understanding their personal responsibilities.
  5. Rules - The organisation's rules should be clearly stated in the behaviour policies. Rules should be shared with, and explained to, all pupils.  The Trust Board expects the rules to be consistently applied by all staff.
  6. Rewards - The Academies and College encourage positive behaviour through high expectation, modelling, a focus on learning, praise and rewards.  Any reward should be consistently and fairly applied to support good behaviour/ conduct.  Rewards should be clear in the behaviour policies.
  7. Unacceptable behaviour - Sanctions and / or consequences for unacceptable behaviour should be understood by everyone and consistently applied.  The range of sanctions should be described in the behaviour policies so that learners, staff and parents understand them.  Wherever possible, learners will have time to reflect on, learn from, and make repairation for their unacceptable behaviour.  A focus on positive behaviour, forgiveness and reconcilliation reduces the need for exclusion.  However, Leaders must balance individual need with safeguarding the wider school community.
  8. Use of reasonable force - Given that our primary aim is to keep learners and staff safe, Senior Leaders will use their powers to search, or use reasonable force, in order to keep individuals from self-harm, harming others and/ or seriously damaging Trust property.  Each setting should define 'reasonable force' and how this will be applied in their unique context.  All Trust entities have staff trained in the accredited programme Teach Teach.

We hope that all stakeholders in The Sea View Trust will have a positive experience.  However we recognise that, at times, people may wish to express a concern about the service provided by one of our entities, or indeed by the wider Trust. In the first instance, an incident involving a specific setting should be addressed by following the appropriate local policy.  The relevant policies can be located on the appropriate website, or by contacting the setting directly.

The Trustees do envisage that it will be possible to resolve almost all concerns at a local level.  However, in the unfortunate event that this is not possible, the CEO and Trustees will be able to support with the next steps.  In such instances, guidance about the appropriate use of the Trust Complaints Policy, Grievance Policy or the Trust Whistleblowing Policy, can be found at the start of each document and links to each of these are below:

In relation to Whistleblowing, the nominated point of contact in an Academy is:

  • The Chairs of Governors 

In relation to Whistleblowing in the Trust, the nominated point of contact is:

  • The Chair of Trustees


The Sea View Trust is committed to offering a broad and balanced curriculum across all settings similar in ambition to the National Curriculum.  As a Trust, we firmly believe that education should be holistic and meet the development and additional needs of the learner.
