THE SEVAK TRUST GIVES THE HIGHEST PRIORITY TO SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN
Our view is that a high quality, sound education is the vital ingredient to improving young people’s life chances. It enables them to progress into adulthood with the skills and confidence that they need for success.
COVID-19 NOTICE TO PARENTS SEVA SCHOOL MARCH 2020
Seva School is closed to the majority of children until further notice in line with government guidelines related to COVID-19.
Provision will be made available at Seva School for children of critical workers including NHS, Emergency Service, Food delivery service or Military personnel where both parents are within these groups and there is no alternative childcare provision available or that they are a single parent. In situations where one parent is in these groups and one is not, it is expected that the non-critical worker will care for their child/children at home. Children who are within the vulnerable groups categories will be contacted individually. Parents of children who are allowed to drop their child off at school because they fall within the critical worker category must bring in proof of occupation and confirmation that their place of work is open. The school opening and closing times to pupils are as follows: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 08:30 to 16:15 and Wednesday and Friday 08:30 to 15:15. In the interests of reducing risk of cross infection we are requesting that all pupils, other than those registered as eligible for free school meals, bring in a vegetarian packed lunch with a bottle of water. For safety reasons, pupils are requested to wear school uniform with trainers. These measures are in place to keep every child and staff member healthy. Thank you for your support in these unprecedented circumstances and together we will overcome.
Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh.
Seva school will deliver excellent educational development through a framework that supports the wellbeing of all. This will be underpinned by the principles and teachings of the Sikh faith. We will adopt and instil the SEVA core principles:
Our School will provide an inspiring and stimulating learning environment, while fostering harmony between spirituality and secularity. We will seek to achieve the best morally, socially and intellectually in an ethos promoting tolerance and mutual understanding.
‘The Truth is high; but higher still is truthful living.’ (Guru Nanak Dev Ji). On a daily basis we work to turn this vision into reality at Seva school. We do this by promoting Nam Japna or meditation on the Divine Name, which forms the core knowledge of our faith practice and 3D curriculum. This builds resilience in our students so that they can flourish as individuals by practising Kirat Karna or living honestly as part of the life of a householder. This meta knowledge is immensely powerful and students find that they can then better engage with the world around them. This is reflected in the commitment of our students to Vand ke Chhakna or sharing with others, which embeds broad humanistic values in their everyday life.

“I feel privileged to have the role of Head Boy at Seva School. I believe it has helped me to develop important qualities in life like never giving up, having confidence to try new things and serving others. Seva School is a place where I have been able to learn as a result of the calm atmosphere and good behaviour. Teachers support us to reach our full potential and prepare us for the next stage of our learning.”
“I am honoured to represent Seva School and its students as Head Girl. As a student leadership team, we strive to make a real difference to all our fellows through listening to their needs and taking their ideas to fruition. We work together to succeed and achieve our best.”
