Dear Parents and Carers. This is a reminder that school closes for the Easter break on Friday 8th April at the normal time of 3:25pm. School re-opens to pupils on Tuesday 25th April (Monday 24th is a teacher training day). Year 8 pupils recently took a letter home about our Showcase Evening; could you please read it and return the attached reply slip (if you would like to purchase tickets) Under certain circumstances it may be necessary to contact you urgently to pass on information about your child or a development within school. It is therefore essential that we have the most up to date contact details available for our parents, carers, or nominated 'first contact'. If you have changed your contact details since September 2016 and you think we may have not been informed, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can make any necessary ammendments. A copy of our pupil data sheet is available on the website under Parent Information - forms should you wish to print it off and send it in to school with your child. We have recently had an increase in the amount of unclaimed lost property, most of which is not named. This makes it more difficult to reunite items with their owners. Could you please ensure that all items of uniform, including P.E. kit, are clearly marked with your child's name. If your child is absent from school at any time, please ask them to come to the office on their return for a copy of any letters they may have missed. Thank you.
Executive Head Teacher Message
I have a huge amount of pride in saying that I am Executive Head Teacher of Seaton Sluice Middle School. I feel that this is a school which offers so much to our students and their families. I feel very confident when I say that the school is ready to explode into its next stage of development.
I have a very simple philosophy when it comes to the type of school that I want to lead. Simply, I want it to be outstanding in everything that it does and ensure that the students attend a school where they are safe, happy, and successful. A school is only as successful as the support it gets from parents and carers so I would encourage you to help us ensure your child gets the best education they possibly can.
Please do all you can to encourage your child to enjoy their education and never be afraid to contact the school if need help or have a question.
At Seaton Sluice Middle School we never forget that the most important thing in your life is in our care every day and, we will do all we can to ensure that they are safe, happy, and successful but please help us to do this.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.

- Important reminder - to parents/carers of our Year 8 pupils regarding the admission process for your chosen High School. The County Council online admission portal for the 2016/2017 intake is now closed. If you have still not registered your child, please contact the school admissioins team on: 01670 623560/623558 as a matter of urgency.
- Dropping your child off at school - we have a small number of parents using the emergency parking area outside the school office to collect/drop off their children. Please be aware that this area is for emergencies only or in the event that your child needs to use crutches or a wheelchair. We respectfully request your co-operation in keeping this area free from non-emergency traffic. Thank you.
- Now that the evenings are lighter, pupils attending after school activities/clubs who require a taxi home will be dropped off in their home village on the normal school bus route. Pupils from Blyth will continue to be dropped off at home.
