Headteacher’s message

My name is Helen Pye and I am thrilled to welcome you to Sutton-on-the-Forest Church of England Primary School.

Sutton is a successful, vibrant school, a school where children come first.  We have a highly motivated, resourceful and committed team of staff and governors who care about and nurture the needs of every child.

We want our children to be happy at school and for learning to be fun and challenging.  We set high expectations and want to give our children every opportunity to become confident and independent learners.  We work closely with parents to ensure this happens and recognise the importance of good communication between home and school.

Within our school site we are fortunate to have our two large playing fields, a large playground and a small forest area with an outdoor learning classroom. For a small school, we have lots of space! Our classrooms are bright and airy and the Reception and Year 1/2 children have dedicated outdoor spaces that are resourced well to ensure learning happens in and out of the classroom. We have a very large hall that is fully equipped with PE equipment, including a large climbing frame.  

Our vision for the school is to value everyone to enable them to develop curiosity, ignite a love of learning, discover talents and reach their full potential in a caring and secure environment. This vision is rooted in our Christian values of respect, compassion, friendship and perseverance, that are at the heart of our school.

I hope you find the information on our website useful, and that it will help us to form the beginning of a successful partnership in your child’s education. To find out more please arrange a visit to see our fantastic school in action. You can also follow us on Facebook where you will get a real flavour of what happens day to day.
