Welcome to Sutton Bonington Primary School
We pride ourselves on providing all children with a secure and stimulating environment in which they can learn, develop and achieve. Our ethos places a strong emphasis on inclusion and staff and parents working in partnership, to help all children to become happy and successful learners. Our vision and values are detailed below, and are truly reflective of our approach.
Staff, as well as children, are constantly learning new skills and striving for high standards in all that we do. We believe that whilst knowledge is forever changing and developing in our world, we best provide for children by giving them the core skills they need as learners, the enthusiasm to enjoy learning, and an enquiring mind and thirst for knowledge. High quality teaching, an enriched curriculum and carefully targeted learning and pastoral support enable us to meet the diverse needs of all our children.
The school was last inspected by Ofsted in May 2019. Their report stated that: “The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Since the previous inspection, there have been significant staff changes. These include your appointment as headteacher in September 2018, and that of the two assistant headteachers in January 2019. Leaders and the governing body have focused their efforts on managing staff changes as well as other priorities they have identified. [The school] and the leadership team are establishing systems and procedures to better hold staff to account while being aware of teachers’ workload. You are developing better communications with parents and carers, and ensuring greater consistency in pupils’ progress and attainment. Leaders and the governing body have a clear vision for continuing improvement.”
We hope that you find all the information you require on this website, but please feel free to contact us (see Contacts tab) if you have any further questions. If you are a prospective parent and would like the opportunity to have a look round we would be very proud to do so.
