We are Seaton Valley Federation

Choosing the right school for your child can be a difficult decision and we hope our website will help you to make that choice.

We welcome applications to join our middle schools at Year 5 if your child is currently in first school, at Year 7 instead of transferring from primary to secondary, and to join our high school at Year 9 for children currently in middle or secondary schools. For admissions arrangements see Admissions.

Welcome from the Executive Headteacher

I have a huge amount of pride in saying that I am Executive Headteacher of the Seaton Valley Federation. I feel that our schools offer so much to our students and their families. I am very confident when I say that the federation is ready to explode into its next stage of development.

I have a very simple philosophy when it comes to the type of schools that I want to lead. Simply put, I want them to be outstanding in everything that they do and ensure that students attend a school where they are safe, happy and successful. A school is only as successful as the support it gets from its 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 us if you need help or have a question.

My Child at School

We are constantly looking for ways to improve our communication with you and keep everyone up-to-date and well informed.

Seaton Valley Federation uses MyChildatSchool, which is an electronic school communication system from Bromcom.  MCAS enables you to receive all your information from school quickly and reliably.

We can send letters by email to your inbox and short messages directly to your mobile phone - and, if necessary, you can reply the same way too!  If you have an Apple or Android mobile phone this is via a free app. You can also make payments through the app or online, as well as top up and view lunch account balances.
