Suttons Primary School and Nursery
Suttons is a place where high standards, individuality and a sense of community are fostered within a happy, safe and caring learning environment.
We are a school that likes to celebrate success - at every level. The life of the school is driven by enthusiasm and a desire to achieve. We aim to bring learning alive, making it exciting, stimulating and contextual to each learner. We want to give our children a thirst for learning that continues with them throughout their future school experiences and lives.
An essential ingredient for this to happen is teamwork. We view education as a joint venture, involving everyone - children, parents, staff, governors and the wider community. We hope that we will be able to depend on your co-operation and support in this partnership, hoping that together we can provide the best for every child.
This website has been created to answer as many questions as possible that might be asked about our school. We hope it will alleviate any anxieties that you have when joining us.
I would encourage you to arrange to visit our school and experience the learning environment for yourselves. So please do make time to visit the school or call us for a chat. We are always happy to help.

We recognise that a child may require social, academic or emotional support at some stage during their school life. We base the organisation of our teaching on the recognition that children in each class are individuals and make progress at differing rates with differing learning needs. We believe in early identification of any barriers to learning that may arise so that we can give children extra support at critical times. We make careful assessments of each child's development which are fully documented in order to monitor their progress.
We actively encourage parents/carers to discuss their children's progress with us and to let use know if they have any concerns. The Deputy Headteacher takes responsibility as the Inclusion Manager for children with Special Educational Needs. Her role is to identify children who have special needs, to advise class teachers on the best teaching strategies, to manage a team of teaching assistants who can give children additional help and support and to liaise with parents/carers and with outside agencies.
"Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make at least good progress in line with the other pupils in school, and sometimes better. Performance of many pupils improved enough for them to no longer remain on the special educational needs register."
As a school we have specially trained Learning Support Assistants (LSAs) who can provide group/individual support to pupils with a range of needs including: dyslexia, speech & language, literacy and/or numeracy concerns. Some children have barriers to learning that mean they have special requirements warranting individual support by the school. These requirements are likely to arise as a consequence of a child having special educational needs. Teachers take account of this and make provision, where necessary, to support individuals or groups of children, enabling them to participate effectively in curriculum and assessment activities. Such children may need additional or differentiated work and activities from that given to other children of the same age.
Children may have special educational needs either throughout or at any time during their school career. Our policy ensures that curriculum planning and assessment for children with SEN takes account of the type and extent of the difficulty experienced by the child, so that they are best supported.
