Music-loving youngsters win silver ‘sing up’ award

Seaton Primary School’s commitment to singing has won it a special fanfare.

It has been given a silver award from Sing Up, a national organisation which recognises schools which embrace music.

Presenting their certificate last week a representative of the group said: “I am delighted to be able to endorse your award.

“It is clear that you are using singing throughout the school day to help with lessons and to celebrate as a community. I particularly enjoyed how singing is supporting learning different languages and to remember times tables in maths.”
