We look forward to the start of a brand new year here at Seaton Academy.
NEW NURSERY CHILDREN
We would like to give a very warm welcome to all the new children who have just started in our Pre-school. We hope that you all settle into your new classes and that you enjoy being part of our school. The photographer will be in school on Monday 21st January to take the new Nursery children’s individual photographs.
Parent interviews will take place for all year groups on Monday 28th, Tuesday 29th & Wednesday 30th January. Appointments will be available from 3.20pm – 4.50pm on each day. (Nursery appointments will begin at 3.10pm, once Nursery has finished). Booking sheets will be in all classrooms from Monday 21st January. Please make sure that all parents/carers make an appointment to see their child’s class teacher. It is important that all parents/carers are informed about how their child is progressing in school.
Our Breakfast club is open every day from 7.50am onwards. The cost of this is £5.00 which includes breakfast. There is no need to book, please just turn up as and when required. Entrance is at the front of the school, via the alleyway leading to Reception.

PTA/FRIENDS OF THE ACADEMY
Mrs Mary Hillery, whose son Cameron is in Reception would like to set up a ‘Friends of the Academy’ group with the aim of fundraising to provide extra opportunities and resources for the children in addition to those that the school already provide. If you are interested in joining this group and would like further details please e-mail Mrs Hillery at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave your details in the school office. Everyone is welcome, parents, grandparents and carers, all we need is enthusiasm and people who would like a more active involvement, although experience of charity work (especially in a treasury role) would be fantastic.
