MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Firstly, we are delighted to inform you that our Progress 8 score for the GCSE results was the best in the Ashfield area so once again congratulations to the students and staff! In fact, according to the performance tables we are one of the top performing secondary schools within the Ashfield and the Mansfield area for the progress made by students from when they enter secondary school until their GCSE examinations. See attached screen shot of the DfE compare schools performance tables – available for you to view yourself online at:
However as mentioned previously it is not only the outcomes of our students that is part of our core vision but also to develop the character education aspects of our students. You will know our students are involved in the Edge programme to develop Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication skills which are vital in the modern world and our students support our WE School campaign to fundraise for a school to be built in Kenya.
With your continued support to ensure that this core vision is met then I can only predict a better educational experience for the students that attend Sutton Community Academy and with whom we all have a shared goal of wanting to achieve and develop as young adults. As a reminder any applicants with students in Year 6 should complete their first-choice applications by the end of the month as we are receiving a vast amount of interest for this and in fact admissions into other year groups.
A massive thank you to all the parents/carers that were able to attend our Target Setting event on Monday where we introduced the new targets for our students. We have been working tirelessly to ensure that targets are appropriate for the students and include a 7+ target rather than 8 and 9's. This area was discussed at the last parents/carers meeting with SLT, so we are introducing this new target based on feedback from parents/carers and our students to ensure that we remove any barriers for students reaching their potential within our broad and balanced curriculum.
As a result of the Target Setting event which was so well attended, and the introduction of the updated targets based on feedback from you, I look forward to another parent/carer focus group meeting after half term when we can once again discuss how we can move forward as an academy together.
The Sixth Form Open Evening is on Thursday 25th October where we will discuss possible subjects with students. The subjects and option blocks are not set in stone from last year. Our Sixth Form had its best results in the summer to continue its upward trend, cementing a stable future. Our provision for Post 16 is growing, we offer a broad curriculum with a variety of subject choices, and we support all our students moving to the next steps beyond Sutton Community Academy, including places to Russell Group Universities.
Thank you for your continued support.

YEAR 7 CAMP
During September and October over 85% of the new Year 7's took part in their residential stay at Edwinstowe Youth Hostel.
The experience has been created to allow the students to get to know each other better so that they can support each other more in school. During the 3 days, students built dens in the forest, orienteered around a course, designed fashion using bin liners, showed off a talent that they are proud of and went on a night time ghost walk.
The comments from the students are excellent and include quotes such as 'It was amazing' or 'Can we go again?'. ... See MoreSee Less

JESSICS WILLMOTT'S SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME TO INDIA
Sutton Community Academy is proud to be a WE School.
WE works in partnership with the international WE Charity to spread the message that together people can make a huge positive difference to the lives of others.
The WE Charity and the academy believe that: anyone can make a difference and small actions can lead to a significant change and that if we take part in social action this not only helps others but develops who we are too. By working with the WE Charity, Sutton Community Academy inspires and empowers its students to ‘change the world’ one step at a time. The academy is active in supporting both local, national and international charities.
As a result of the academy’s consistent community spirit one student from the school has been given the opportunity work more closely with the WE Charity. Jessica Willmott was selected to participate in the WE Charity’s trip to India where she travelled with 29 other students from across the UK and 4 staff from the WE Charity to experience the life of some of the people whom the charity is supporting. Jess took part in community projects and learnt about the lives of the local people. She was chosen for the scholarship programme, funded by Virgin Atlantic, because of her relentless social action throughout her 7 years at Sutton Community Academy.
During the sixth form she was a WE School Ambassador and an activist for social change. Jess recently returned from India and led assemblies with all year groups at the school to share her experience and to inspire others to follow her lead where she was a positive role model to others. Jess told the students at the academy that:
“My time in India helped me to better understand the world and the people within it. From playing games with young children, to digging away at the mud during monsoon season. I was able to experience the best of times and the worst. I was able to learn that even though, to us it may seem like hard life, it is not a bad life.”
The school wish Jess well in the next part of her life’s journey to university.
Last year the academy and its students pledged to raise funds in order to build a school in a WE Village, in Kenya. These communities do not have access to education and so this is considered to be a very important step towards empowering these people through learning. The academy needs to raise £5,800 funds to secure this build. The school will continue to raise awareness and funds for this cause.

Thank you Sutton Community Academy. Or, as many still remember you as, 'Sutton Centre'. I've been at University just over two weeks and I've had a lot to consider since getting here. You have given me the confidence to try, the initiative to want more, the vocabulary to say 'yes' and, most importantly, the opportunity to better myself. Now with the tools you have given me and the drive I installed within myself, I am going do the most I can do. The only place I am willing to go is up and it's thanks to you I am aware of this. So thank you, again, for teaching me not just the syllabus but for teaching me how to be the greatest I could ever be.
Wow my big lady ❤️ I’m so proud of you, xxx
