Communication with Teaching Staff – Guidelines for Parents and Carers

If you wish to discuss a matter that has recently arisen concerning your daughter with a teacher in private, please request an appointment at the School Office.  The teacher concerned will then contact you (if possible, later that day) to arrange a suitable time which cannot be in the normal teaching day, which is 8.30am-3.30pm.  It is not possible to discuss matters privately at drop off at 8.30am or at pick up at 3.30pm.


The first point of contact should be with the teacher concerned.


The Homework Diary is the ideal mode of informally communicating with staff.  However, please note that, in the same way as staff communicate with parents respectfully, the same must apply to parents communicating with staff.  Please write briefly and legibly in the comments section only, if possible, or we would be happy to receive a separate note.


Spring Term Clubs

All the letters have gone out this week for the after school and lunchtime Clubs starting in January.  Please get your applications in promptly as this really helps!  We are very sorry to have to let you know that Mrs King has decided that she is unable to continue with her Spanish Club.


WoW Week

Next week is WoW week, so wrap up warm and make those walks to and from school to earn your WoW badge and help your class to get the highest percentage of walkers.


Nursery Polo Shirts

We have a small supply of the Kukri polo shirts (previously available online via AlleyCatz) in the School Office for sale at £10.00 each.  These have been replaced by the plain white polo shirt but are still current uniform.  If you would like to continue wearing this design or keep one for special occasions such as school outings or Sports Day, please call into the Office.  Once these have gone, we will not replace them and the plain white polo shirt will be the only option for Nursery children.


Epsom College

Epsom College are now accepting girls into their Senior School from Year 7 onwards with entrance tests being held in January 2015.  If you would like to tour the school as a possible option their next Open Morning is Saturday 6th December at 9.30am.  You will need to contact the college to make an appointment.


Wanted by Reception

If you have any unwanted Sindy/Barbie type dolls with clothes that you no longer have need of, Reception class would appreciate having them to play with.  Please pass on to Mrs Dawson.

Match Reports


U8A Netball team played a match against Royal Russell on Thursday 13th November.  We won first centre pass and got off to a good start.  However, Royal Russell scored a goal. Adaora then scored two excellent goals for Seaton House putting us ahead.  We had some great passing, especially from Chiara and everyone tried to get the ball.  Unfortunately Royal Russell scored three more goals in the second half.  Well played everyone for our first game!

On Thursday 13th November Form IV played netball against Royal Russell at their school.  We won the toss and chose first centre pass.  Having quickly got it up to our end, we unfortunately missed the shot.  Royal Russell passed very well and managed to score two goals before half time.  In the second half, despite some really good defending, Royal Russell were very quick and scored a three further goals.  We had a couple more attempts at goal but were unlucky.  The final score was 5-0 to them, but we really enjoyed it and are looking forward to another match.  Well played everyone, we’ll beat them next time.
