schools these days, we have a NO NUTS policy in place. We have several children with severe nut
allergies in school and we must therefore ask that you do not provide your
child with any products containing nuts.
Please take particular care with cereal/museli/breakfast bars and
certainly no peanut butter sandwiches
30th September the photographer will be in school to take individual
and sibling group photographs. Sibling
groups will be taken together unless we are contacted in writing into
the School Office to request that individual photographs are taken. Please ensure on that morning that everyone
is looking super smart with tidy hair!
Medication into School
not send any medication, over the counter or prescription, into school with
your daughter unless you have downloaded and completed the ‘Permission for School
to Administer Medication form from the School Website or collected this form
from the School Office.
New Arrangements for Reporting Absence from School
morning of any absence, please contact the School Office before 9.00am by
telephone, if necessary leaving a message on the answerphone. This should then be followed up on the same
morning by an email explaining the reason for the absence and the estimated
length of absence. If your child does
not return to school when you anticipate, then please follow up with a second
email. These new arrangements will
replace the need for a follow-up letter on return to school, but ONLY if they
are adhered to. This is because written confirmation of all absences need to
correspond with absence marks recorded on the register which is a statutory

A Letter from the Parents of
you know that the Parents of Seaton House (POSH) raised a staggering c. £10,000 last year for our school! By
way of sharing the sheer scale of contribution we have listed below details of
the items purchased by the Parents of Seaton House in the last year:
Players/Stereos for Junior House
Gazebos for school and posh events
laptops and trolley
number of maths games for Junior House
to the Year 6 Leavers’ Book
through the various Parents of Seaton House events that were held, not only did
we raise a lot of money for the school, but a lot of fun was had by the
children and their families!
is a totally voluntary organisation but over the last year the majority of work
and support has been provided by a few loyal parents. This is because POSH has lost a significant
amount of key players from the committee, through girls moving onto secondary
school. We are also in the process of looking for a replacement Chair(s) to run
POSH, with a view to someone taking over asap.
Unfortunately if no-one volunteers to take over this role the POSH committee
may no longer exist!
POSH to continue in any form WE NEED YOUR HELP!
can you help?
the saying goes, many hands make light work!
We understand that many parents work, or have children at other schools,
so time is extremely tight. But here are a few examples of how you can get
involved and really help, which don’t have a great time impact:
If you are coming along to an event
with your child, give us as little as 30 mins of your time on a stall, your
girls will probably love it too!
You can help in the build up to an
event by pricing items and preparing stalls.
We are always looking for helpers to
arrive early to an event to help set up or by staying later to clear up.
If you are a keen baker there are
several events coming up when your skills will be much appreciated.
Have you got storage space for
equipment, stock to hold over between events?
Got a big car? You could help
transport equipment to school or from other venues.
Big shopper? We are always looking
for stock at reasonable prices, keeping an eye out and stocking up could really
help us out.
you can see everyone can get involved and ultimately without your help POSH may
cease to exist. We truly believe our
school is a better place for giving all our girls the chance to mix, mingle and
have fun together in a social environment. After all, our school days are
supposed to be our best, so let's make sure they are!
following events are taking place this term and as mentioned above, your help
at any or all of them will be greatly appreciated!
