What people say about us...

seatonofstedlogoAt Seaton Primary we believe it is important to listen to all the people involved in making our school such a special place. We value the comments and feedback from the children, parents, governors and our local community. Here is a selection of some of the things people have said about us…

Children’s Comments

We believe it is very important that children at Seaton Primary are actively involved in their school. We hold regular council meetings and complete different questionnaires to get feedback from the children.

Ethos Statement:

We held a meeting to collect children’s thoughts to contribute to our school’s Ethos Statement.

“Even though it’s hard, it is still helping us,” Natasha (9).CIMG7853

“This school helps us to understand from the early years stages to when you are older,” Stephen (10)

S3“We are all friends together in school,” Toby (6)

“We care and love people and eat fruit and medicine” Evie (5)

“We help by planting fruit and veg which also adds to healthy living which helps us to eat fruit and veg more,” Stephen (10)

“We can go on trips to experience things better. Like the British Museum, there are statues and things and it helps us learn how things used to look,” Natasha (9).WP_20151106_028

“School helps us make friendships, relationships,” Owen (9)

“We don’t know how special we are. If we don’t have a world we won’t be able to care for people…If your teacher’s old, you have to look after them,” Billy (5)

“School helps us with technology and things to help get a good job so you can invent stuff for the future,” Ollie (9)

School Council:

Each year group has a boy and girl representative. They feedback classroom discussions and concerns during the termly School Council Meetings. Here is a selection of some of the points being discussed;

  • Children would like more playground equipment at lunch (balls, skipping ropes, hoops etc).
  • The quiet maze area is not being used appropriately.
  • The football rota isn’t being stuck to – complaints that certain year groups were playing when it wasn’t their day.
  • Children would like a larger bike shelter.
  • Children wanted the large play equipment to be checked more regularly.

Daily Mile:

“It’s my favourite time of the day I think its a rely good idea and it gets us fit and healthy.”

“It is the funest thing on earth!”

“It is lovely to go and talk to friends and do some exercise.”

“EPIC!”
