Our Singing School

Here at Seaton Sluice First School, singing is at the heart of everything we do. Songs are built into daily routines within the school, such as tidying up, lining up and to support smooth transitions between lessons. We believe that singing unites us, impacts on our positive school culture and builds confidence. Our singing school is our identity!
Seaton Sluice First School is extremely proud to have original songs composed by our Headteacher, Mrs Bennett. Many of these songs are based on our school values. These include: our 'school values song', 'lining up march', 'the goodbye song' and the 'rainbow song' (incorporating the colours of our class names) and many more. 
Singing Leaders
All children from across the school are encouraged to be 'singing leaders'; this involves leading songs within class, assembly time and initiating singing within the playground to support play and routines. We pride ourselves in being an inclusive school and we learn makaton to further support communication throughout our school. We practise new songs on a regular basis as well as learning the accompanying signs. Pupils in Years 2 and 3 participate in 'MPower' sessions led by Mrs Melling. These sessions combine dance and makaton; they are fun-filled, build confidence as well as well as keeping us fit!
Sing Up Platinum Award
Seaton Sluice First School is proud to be affiliated with 'Sing Up', a highly successful international organisation providing quality resources to promote singing in schools. Having received the Gold Award, we have also been awarded the prestigious Platinum Award. The award was given in recognition of the many opportunities within the school to encourage a love of singing and boost emotional and social well-being.
