WHOLE SCHOOL REWARDS EVENING - TUESDAY 10TH JULY 2018
This week, Sutton Community Academy hosted their rewards ceremony celebrating the success of their students; this included recognition of student contributions to school life as well as the wider community. The evening was hugely successful with invited speakers presenting eight prestigious awards for a variety of categories.
Students were praised for their academic excellence, and students from year 7-10 were rewarded for their outstanding work and consistent effort in lessons. Other awards were ‘Academy Champion’ for students who have represented the Academy in extracurricular activities, Arts, Sports and overall school club awards. Alongside this, the ‘SCA Community Award’ was for students that have been involved in the wider community, whether it be fundraising, cadets, young carers or supporting us as a WE school.
A significant award was chosen by each Head of Year known as the ‘SCA resilience Award’. This was for students who have faced many different personal challenges this year, but have rarely allowed these to affect their committed approach to school and friendships. Likewise, it was for students who have shown spirit and tenacity throughout the year, and knowing many of their personal situations, their families should be proud of their fighting spirits.
Other key awards include our ’SCA Exemplary Character’ and ‘Inspirational Student’ awards. Our Pastoral award, ‘SCA Exemplary Character’, was awarded to students that consistently show kindness, compassion and support to others, and are a good friend that unselfishly gives to others but expect nothing in return. Likewise, the ‘Inspirational Student’ award recognised the students that have achieved the highest points on our new Academy rewards system, launched earlier this year. This is a points based system where points are awarded on a daily basis for meeting expectations, good attendance, punctuality and behaviour standards. Additional further points are awarded through commendations by subject teachers throughout the school year. This system will continue to develop and grow to recognise and reward students.
Finally, the evening came to a close with David Mackey, acting Head Teacher, awarding ‘Student of the year’ for students that he felt are exceptional role models in terms of their attendance, behaviour, commitment and positive attitude to work and Academy life. For each category we awarded a runner up and winner from years 7-10 inviting 64 students and parents to the event held in our theatre.
One key inspirational guest speaker for the night was Jessica Willmott who has just completed year 13 with us. Jess is a WE ambassador that through the school has been given the opportunity to visit Kenya this summer. Jessica spoke with true passion and professionalism sharing with the audience her experiences of school life and attributing her successes to the opportunities that SCA has given her.
The evening was very heart-warming and it was wonderful to see so many proud parents, students and staff together sharing, reflecting and celebrating all the fantastic work that happens at Sutton Community Academy. ... See MoreSee Less

First Parent/Teacher meeting at Sutton Community Academy
Many thanks to all the parents/carers who attended last night and for raising valid points. As discussed it is in the best interests of our students that we work together to improve outcomes, safeguard our students and develop their character. As a result of the meeting I discussed with the Senior Leadership Team the issue of current Year 10 students and parents/carers having to buy trousers etc for one year from Clement Taylor. We agreed that trousers and skirts would still have to be purchased from Clement Taylor but we will reimburse parents/carers £5 at the end of Year 11 if the clothing is wearable again.
Other points were raised such as about transgender toilets and I was able to confirm that this will be resolved for September.
I look forward to meeting more parents and carers on Monday evening and all of us working together in the future on our journey to outstanding.

How do we know if we can go to the meeting?
Ok, so I will contact the school and formally note that my children WILL NOT be wearing the uniform. And law states the school are not allowed to punish the student if the parent notifies the school of their intentions, this will include excluding the pupils from lessons and or activities. David Mackey, I would suggest you and your SLT reconsider the uniform change as schools are for learning NOT PROFIT. Unless you are trying to alienate the less fortunate pupils or detract the schools popularity from the working class.
What time is the meeting Monday please
U receive a left Amanda Princess Franks
