Childcare Play Event
The EYE level 2 childcare students transformed the corridor and specialist base area of the academy into a sensory play event.
The students planned and set up sensory activities.
Shannon S made a collage with feely material and textures and turned them into cards to take home, smelly jars with mint/curry/coffee and other sniffs!
Breanna & Sharna made a feely box that the children had to feel and guess what was inside.
Cara & Shannon F had a bustling musical instruments table where the children could make loud or quiet shakers!
We planned and set up other activities the children could access freely, a jigsaw, farm set and skittles. We sang songs, tidied up together and finished with playing the honey bear game in a large circle on the floor listening very quietly for the honey to be removed... and wake up the bear!
The children from Sutton Under fives have now been a few times and it is an annual event that we and the staff look forward to putting on to work together with our community. ... See MoreSee Less
Sutton Community Academy are pleased to inform you of a new initiative that we have decided to implement from September 2016. All new Year 7 students joining the Academy will receive a free blazer and school tie. We recognise that out of all of the school uniform costs, the blazer and tie are expensive items compared to trousers and shirts which can be purchased relatively cheaply. This will save each family over £30 per child.
I hope that this new initiative helps to make transition even smoother as I know many parents this year did not receive their uniform ready for the start of term. We shall ensure that all students joining the Academy in September are measured up and have their blazer on order, well in advance of the new school Year.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you require any more information.

Kerrie WestThat's good news but what about all those that are already there and it cost £30 in September this year? Do we get a refund? All those that were already there when you bought in the uniform got them free too! What's good for one year should be good for them all2 days ago

Kids Lit Quiz
A number of students from Years 7 and 8 recently entered the East Midlands heat of the Kid’s Lit Quiz which was held at Lady Manners School in Bakewell. This is an annual literature competition for children aged 10-13 which allows children from eight different countries, including Australia and the USA, to compete for some fantastic prizes.
The students faced some really tough questions on a variety of subjects and even though they didn’t win they should be very proud of their performance.
Several members of the team will shortly be starting their next reading challenge, the Brilliant Book Award, a reading competition for key stage 3 children across Nottinghamshire. They will be required to read and review a short-list of six books before voting for their favourite. ... See MoreSee Less

School Food Champion Scheme
Sutton Community Academy are very pleased to have been awarded a certificate from the School Food Champion Scheme for achieving a 5% increase in uptake of school lunches for at least three consecutive terms. The scheme is funded by the Department for Education and was set up to support food teachers who are passionate about teaching cooking and nutrition to their students to support change in a school’s food journey.
Since joining the scheme six months ago, we have been working hard with the service providers and the staff team in the canteen to improve school food and serve the students nutritious meals. A group of student Food Champions has also been created to act as a student voice. Students meet monthly to discuss school food issues and taste test foods for the new menu. ... See MoreSee Less
Brierley Forest Primary School – Harvest Festival
During Harvest Festival Further Education staff and students from Sutton Community Academy provided Harvest Arts and Crafts at Brierley School for the foundation children.
This gave students an insight into early years and foundation learning which the children found both enjoyable and rewarding, if not a little tiring!
The children from both schools were highly praised for their exceptional behaviour and worked well together creating individual crafts and work for displays. ... See MoreSee Less
