Another Great Community Evening!
Last night President Liz Barrett welcomed over 60 guests to The Princess Suite in Sutton Academy for a buffet meal and presentation to this year's winners in the Community Action Fund Applications. Liz said,
“Tonight, we are saying thank you to volunteers from successful groups, on behalf of the Sutton Community. So, if you donated to Santa’s Sleigh, or at our Prize Draw, or at any other event, your money is being passed on to one of these good causes.”.
Hosted by Community Coordinators John Pearce and Sarah Baraclough, cheques and medals were presented to successful applicants (see the slideshow)

All parents should have received a copy of the letter in the post. ... See MoreSee Less
How does the new uniform have a positive aspect ?? Feel free to explain Maybe the school should put it out to parents ( who actually pay for it ) before dictating to us what’s happening.
They’ll be making a new isolation block for all students that refuse to change there uniform before you no it😂 got one year left at school and I’d rather be prioritising my GCSE’S whether I look silly or not, got bigger priorities Thankyou very muchhh!!!!
At a time when most of us are already having to tighten our belts just in order to feed our kids and keep paying our bills, paying £15 for one pair of trousers isn’t appreciated.
Like we've all got money to go n buy our kids new trousers when they've got trousers that are perfectly fine... its a stupid idea 😕
Well i cant afford it! So I'll not be buying any 😠 am sure a lot parents feel same.. what they going to do.. put whole school in isolation!!
Thanks for Trebling the cost of trousers and skirts for me I will have two children to provide for and because I work full time no help it’s a disgrace and shouldn’t be allowed absolutely disgusted
Absolutely ridiculous this was my school of choice for my 2 boys 😂😂 can think again if you think my children are coming to this school now, nothing about wanting to look presentable ! It's all about the money! Get you're staff in uniform aswell, school should be about education not about uniform. Parents/carers are now going to struggle to buy the new uniform! We need to get a petition up for this as I have seen already no meeting no enquires have been made to parents/carers. Schools a bag of crap 😂😂.
I protest against this uniform it’s not the things we are wearing that effects our learning it’s the school putting us in ISO so that we miss our learning pathetic if I’m honest🤨
Absolutely ridiculous! This is going to cost me a fortune on top of what I'm already paying, i can't see a problem with black trousers 😡
So these are the trousers in question? I was assured you could see the logo when wearing the blazer? Clearly you can not so my son will be attending in September in normal black trousers
Yes recieved the letter and its a Joke. Fair enough blazer and tie but now the school is starting to take the mick as if your gonna be able to see the logo on the trousers/skirts anyway unless your putting it half way down the childrens legs, and hows about we have all TEACHERS, T.A'S in a uniform and Logo everything to state where they work, wouldnt that look more presentable or is it different rules for Staff...
I would like a response to my message? I feel this is pointless having the logo on trousers that cost between £13-15 a pair Children grow all the time and I personally get through so many trousers with my son At supermarkets you can buy a pair for £4.50 but you are expecting us to pay 3 times that every time they need a new pair? Also where will the logo be because if the blazer hides it then it really is a waste of time? Think parents should have been included in this decision I understand with the blazer, jumper and tie but this is going too far
Is there going to be any subsidy to help out parents who have ALREADY brought school uniform for the upcoming term? I think they're quite 'overpriced' just to send our children to school. Instead of hitting on school uniform why don't they look into the 'reputation' of the school by not letting kids out at dinnertime and smoking/swearing around where the chimneys/steps are? I thought our kids are supposed to be there to learn - I think it's more of a case of 'building up for the next Oftsed report' and not thinking what the children need to succeed!
Great all that extra cost. My daughter has only got 8 months left at school before she leaves. Grrrr
What about family with more than one child there and them on low incomes that just car'nt afford them as for my son who will be staying in September with sensory issues were clothing is concerned it's going to be a big problem if he doesn't like the feeling of them he will not wear them
I think it’s ridiculous, all schools should concentrate on just being happy that the children turn up for school, not what they wear.
Will the academy be reimbursing me for the trousers I’ve just purchased for my son, which do adhere to the existing uniform policy? I’ve got 2 kids to fork out for which is why I’ve already purchased my sons who is in year 8 at mo. What will the repercussions be if I choose not to buy the Academy branded ones for my son this year? I will of course purchase the branded ones for my daughter who is due to start year 7 in September
It's nice to see that as an academy you are blatently ignoring the guidance from the CMA (Competition and Markets Authority) and government on single uniform suppliers and not giving parents a more affordable option. This is nothing but monopolisation.
I think we should boycott this it’s not right at all to demand this off parents it’s a huge struggle as it is to buy uniforms this is making it much harder!!
I've already brought both my girls trousers and won't be able to return them. Will Sutton academy be reimbursing me for the cost and also giving me money towards the 150.00 it's going to cost me for 10 pairs of trousers?
When your child has their trousers go missing at after school club quite often, it's not going to be as easy to replace as just picking a pair up from Asda etc!
Absolutely ridiculous just because of the few that send their kids to school in skinny trousers/leggings/jeans or skirts that are too short 😠
I think we should all refuse to buy them! Who are they going to teach when no kids turn up because nobody wants to pay for something so ridiculous? My son is 13 and already 5’7 and constantly growing. I’ll be buying a new uniform every other month at his rate of growth! Not to mention he plays football at lunch, or the art lessons, woodwork etc where his clothes quickly get knackered! I don’t think they’ve thought this through at all. We should all just say no
Yeah I can tell you know if you send the kids home then it’s you that are interrupting their education and tbh I ain’t paying for those! Your chad complaint says to make the kids look better well then in that case sort your staff out first as some of them look a mess and the price does not bother me too much but seeing as parents who don’t have that money to spend so you really think this will be fair! Good luck enforcing this as all the parents I know have said to take a long jump as they will not do this!!! I think think this school should have had a parent consultation but yeah that’s not happening is it any time soon. This is absolutely appalling the way it has been done.
I’d be fuming if Dylan’s school did the same thing Uniform is supposed to affordable for all Forcing you to buy what is now essentially ‘branded’ uniform trousers/skirts completely limits parents and forces you to buy perhaps above your budget at a time when children are constantly growing! Second hand versions don’t be available until someone hands down their first pair. The issues re the need for ‘smart and neat’ can be addressed by the school being firm about suitable items This to me (and I appreciate I’m not directly affected but felt aggrieved enough to comment!) is an extreme reaction that will cause financial stress to the majority of parents for very little gain with regards to actual work levels within school 😐
