COMMUNICATION FROM OFSTED RELATED TO OUR STATEMENT OF ACTION - 'FIT FOR PURPOSE'
Ofsted has contacted our academy recently to inform us that our statement of action (Post Ofsted Action Plan) has been evaluated and, as it fulfils their requirements, it is therefore ‘fit for purpose’.
Furthermore, we will include more specific success criteria related to the persistent absence of students and improving the quality of teaching, learning and assessment.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to working with all stakeholders to ensure that Sutton Community Academy is delivering good provision in all areas for our young people.

DUKE OF EDINBURGH EXPEDITION
A great first day for our D of E students, a sight detour at times but camp all set up, food cooked and settled in!
Enjoying a lovely sunny evening. All the students are having fun playing cards, uno, dobble and name that tune on kazoo. ... See MoreSee Less
A massive thank you to Jenny Richardson who made this happen for all the students that have taken part. My son has had an amazing time. Please thank all the other staff that have helped with expedition this weekend. Thank you Jenny for supporting Anthony over the past year helping him achieve his D of E.
Lovely to see them all! Impressed with some of the cooking skills! Enjoy the walk tomorrow. 😄
Have a great time

Thank you to all the families who attended the Open Evening last night. We were delighted with the attendance, the positive comments about our dedicated welcoming staff but also the comments regarding our students who acted as Ambassadors for the evening. Their attitude and actual professionalism is evidence of our ethos of creating successful, confident and ambitous students thanks to the efforts of our staff. Thank you to all those that contributed.
As I mentioned, please make an appointment if you would like a tour of the academy during the school day. It was an extra bonus that the sun made an appearance for the barbecue that we hosted. It was also particularly heart warming to hear the successes of past students from those that were present and from parents whose students have left our academy to go on be successful although it did make me feel old.
Thank you for your continued support.

So pleased it was a successful evening Reece they are going to miss your dedication to the school and your cooking.
My son thoroughly enjoyed the visit, the students were both polite and helpful. I will certainly be arranging more visits nearer the time, as my son will definitely struggle with the transition, hence getting him prepared early. Thankyou.
Brilliant, well done to all. 😊

SCHOLARS PROGRAMME GRADUATION CEREMONY
On Thursday 23rd May, eleven of our Year 9 students who had completed the Scholars Programme attended their Graduation ceremony at the University of Nottingham.
The students had spent several weeks working on their final assignment, a 2000 word essay titled ‘To what extent might literature help us understand British politics since 2000?’ and the graduation event was attended by family members who were able to join students in their celebrations!
One of our students gave a short speech about how they found the programme useful in preparing them for potential University level study in the future and read a short extract from their final essay.
We are incredibly proud of the work the students have done and hope they will find the experience helpful! ... See MoreSee Less

PARENT STEERING GROUP
Many thanks to the Parent Steering Group who attended last night to discuss the new communications policy, terms of reference of the PSG, enrichment and also the plans for next academic year.
Myself and Chris Clark are going to investigate an online method of contacting the school via the Parent Portal to improve communication.
The PSG is going to run similar to a Governing Body in that a group of eight parents will attend with myself and another member of SLT depending on the agenda. The agenda will be created by a newly appointed Chair of the PSG. Items for discussion in September by the PSG will include how other parents/carers can support the PSG in a solution focused approach during meetings.
