Our school has been at the heart of our village, serving the local community since 1878. We are incredibly proud of the school’s history and the strong relationships we form with our families and the wider local community. We enjoy working closely with our families and we recognise the need to work together to help each child reach their full potential.
Our school is a friendly, caring and welcoming environment with an emphasis on nurturing the children's physical and mental health and well-being. The values of our school, which have been created by our children, are at the forefront of everything we do. At Sutton-on-Trent Primary we are committed to:
We are fortunate to have a highly-skilled, experienced and dedicated team of staff, who provide a stimulating, engaging and creative curriculum. Our aim is for our children to be happy, confident, motivated and independent learners and our staff provide the support and guidance that enables the children to be the best that they can be. This is done by maintaining high expectations and aspirations for all of our children; encouraging them to recognise that they have many talents and strengths and to have a positive, 'can do' attitude to new challenges and experiences. We also want our children to be resilient and reflective learners; learning from mistakes and identifying areas that they need to improve.
Our curriculum is carefully designed to be broad, challenging and engaging. We endeavour to offer a wide variety of opportunities in order that the children can recognise and develop their own individual strengths. Wherever possible, enrichment opportunities are incorporated; through visits to places of interest or by welcoming inspirational visitors into school to enhance our learning. We celebrate diversity - recognising difference and individuality in a positive light – whilst embedding British values and supporting our children to become valued members of their community.
We hope you enjoy exploring our website but if you would like to visit us, then please don’t hesitate to contact the school office, who will be pleased to arrange this for you.
We look forward to meeting you.
Mr Steve Moore
Acting Head Teacher
