Singing School

Here at Seaton Sluice First School, singing is at the heart of everything we do. Singing is built into daily routines within the school, such as 'tidy up time', lining up and transitions between lessons.
Seaton Sluice First School is extremely proud to have original songs composed within school, which are based upon the school values. These include: our 'school values song', 'lining up march', 'the goodbye song' and the 'rainbow song' (incorporating colours for class names).
Singing Leaders
All children are given the opportunity to become 'singing leaders'; this involves leading songs within class and assembly time and initiating singing within the playground with children across the school. We are also fortunate to have staff members who provide training in Makaton to pupils within the school. They share new songs on a regular basis and teach the whole school 'signs' they have learnt each week.
Sing Up Platinum Award
Seaton Sluice First School is proud to be affiliated with Sing Up, an organisation providing quality resources to promote singing, and have been awarded the Platinum Sing Up 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.
