Here we are at the end of what has been a most unusual academic year, and one we hope that shall never be repeated! That said, we are incredibly proud of how our students have adapted to the changes – their resilience, hard work and perseverance has been remarkable. Indeed, we also want to thank you too, for the support you have given both our academy and to your child(ren). We know it has not been easy adapting to home schooling and we would of course have much preferred to see all our students in the classroom – which leads us nicely to looking ahead to the new academic year.

Our core purpose is to prepare students for the next steps in their lives and equip them with the skills, qualifications and knowledge to become high achieving well-rounded individuals, thus enabling them to reach their potential and achieve their aspirations and goals.
Personal Development is critical for students’ current and future success: we support our students to develop confidence, self-discipline, flexibility and resilience through our curriculum, extra-curricular opportunities and our leadership programme.
We are an inclusive and diverse community that respects others’ differences and promotes understanding and tolerance of others’ beliefs. This is reflected in our broad and balanced curriculum, which reflects students’ aspirations and future local, national, and international career opportunities.
We expect excellence from all: from the staff who work here, from the students who learn here and from the parents who choose to send their children here. In return, we offer students and staff an innovative, progressive, challenging but supportive environment in which to thrive.
At the Elizabethan Academy we believe that everyone is unique. Our core values of respect and tolerance to all is something which we as a school are immensely proud of. At the Elizabethan we have been promoting British Values to all students in line with recent guidance from the DfE.
The DfE has reinforced the need “to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.”
The Government set out its definition of British values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy, and these values have been reiterated by the Prime Minister. At The Elizabethan Academy these values are reinforced regularly throughout all year groups during Personal Development and Careers lessons, as well as through the curriculum in many subjects.
There are five main areas which we focus upon at the Elizabethan to promote British values:
Pupils are taught the fundamentals of democracy from Year 7. This then develops into how Britain is a democratic country and the advantages of living in a democracy compared to a dictatorship. This enables our pupils to have an appreciation for the democratic system in the UK, how it works and the importance of getting involved.
We also promote democracy within our school by voting for House Captains, Sports Captains and other leadership posts. This allows pupils to understand the voting process and how democracy works first hand. We have an active School Council which is an avenue pupils use to have their voices heard.
The Rule of Law
The importance of Laws, whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced on a daily basis and through school assemblies as well as when dealing with behaviour issues. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the Police, Fire Service and the Ambulance Service feature regularly in our calendar and help reinforce this message. The concept of the Rule of Law is also reinforced through teaching activities in our Personal Development and Careers curriculum. Through these lessons we explore the changing attitudes of law enforcement and punishment through the years in Britain and we discuss the laws which govern other countries.
Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in a safe and supportive environment. As a school, we educate and provide boundaries for young people to make choices safely. Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and we advise how to exercise these safely, for example through our E-Safety and Personal Development lessons. Whether it is through choice of challenge within lessons or participation in extra-curricular clubs and opportunities, pupils are given the freedom to make choices.
Part of our school ethos and behaviour policy revolves around core values such as ‘Respect’, and students have been part of discussions and assemblies related to what this means and how it is shown. These ideas are reiterated through the school and classroom rules, as well as our behaviour policy. In Personal Development and Careers sessions we cover the importance of having respect for all humans regardless of their race, religion, gender, sexuality and personal belief. We believe that living in a multi-cultural society with harmony and peace is vital to building strong communities. We therefore ensure our students develop a deep sense of mutual respect between each other, staff and the wider community.
Tolerance of those of Different Faiths and Beliefs
This is achieved through enhancing students’ understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity. Assemblies and discussions involving prejudices and prejudice-based bullying have been followed and supported by learning in RE and PD&C. We cover a range of areas which focus upon the importance of tolerance. Our aim is to ensure that pupils understand that even though someone may have a different faith or hold contrasting views compared to their own, we must still respect them. Pupils and staff of different faiths or religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes and the school.

Welcome to Sutton-Cum-Lound Church of England (VA) Primary School
A welcome from the Head Teacher…..
Thank you for taking the time to find out about our school!
We are a small school at the heart of its community just outside Retford in the village of Sutton-cum-Lound. We are very proud of the links we have with the village, church and the local area. We boast small class sizes and state of the art facilities. We have newly refurbished classrooms and a beautiful new outdoor learning area. In July 2017, we officially opened our new classroom for reception aged children which provides a superb learning space for our youngest children as they begin their learning journey with us.
We are very proud of the creative learning environments we have at Sutton, where children are immersed in their class topic - they may be in the jungle, in Dr. Seuss land, in a cave in the Stoneage, in a castle or even under camouflage netting in World War 2. The learning environments are a key feature in engaging the children and making their learning memorable and exciting.
The children are given opportunities to learn through first hand learning experiences, whether it be going on visits or having visitors coming into school.
We were delighted that the school was recognised by Ofsted in February 2015 awarding us a Good grade across all areas. In March 2016 we had our Church School Inspection and we were awarded Outstanding in all areas! Both reports can be read in the About Us section of the website.
Children can begin their journey at Sutton by joining Portland Place Pre-school. This is a separately managed setting which occupies one of the school classrooms. Portland Place Pre-school admit children from two years old. Pre-school is open daily from 8.45am to 3.00pm. For more information, please give them a call on 01777 705990 and choose the Portlnd Place Pre-school extension.
Children can then join Sutton in Foundation 2 (also referred to as reception). Making the decision about which school is the right school for your child can be a difficult one, but we hope that this website will help you make that decision and give you a flavour of Sutton-cum-Lound School and the learning opportunities we provide.
Our committed and caring staff work hard to make our school a friendly and secure place in which all children succeed and strive to achieve their full potential in a happy environment. We are enthusiastic about our work with the children and the experiences provided at Sutton-cum-Lound School. We believe it is vital that children learn skills for life; to be confident and independent, who have high expectations and aspire to make a positive contribution to society.
We offer extended provision with a breakfast club from 7.45am. Our Sutton Club is open daily from 3.15-5.30pm (more details in the After School and Breakfast Club section of the website). A range of extra-curricular activities after school enable children to learn a wide range of skills from sports to the arts. Take a look at the Preschool and Clubs section of the website for more information.
Being a small village school, we also enjoy the links we have with the family of schools. These links support and enhance the curriculum and wider experiences we provide for the children from sporting events to multi-cultural learning opportunities.
This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils. It is not, however, intended to replace the best form of communication; that of personal contact between home and school. I would welcome the opportunity to meet you and your child, to show you around and discuss the opportunities Sutton-cum-Lound can provide. Please contact the school directly to arrange a convenient time to visit or with any queries you may have.
Please also have a look in the "Parents" section of the website where you will be able to see our newsletters and read more about what we have been doing!
We all look forward to working in partnership with you, for the benefit of your child, our school and the community.
Thank you for visiting!

The Preparatory School is an Independent IAPS School for boys and girls, day and boarding, ages 3-13, set in stunning grounds with outstanding facilities in North Nottinghamshire.
Out in Education is an entirely student-run not-for-profit. We were founded at the University of Nottingham in 2013 and have grown year-on-year under the leadership of successive waves of enthusiastic volunteers.
We have three key aims:
1. Tackle homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in schools
2. Support young LGBT+ people coming to terms with their sexuality
3. Train teachers to organically bring LGBT+ issues into the classroom
We work towards these by delivering assemblies and workshops on a diverse range of topics to students from KS1 to KS5. We also help schools create effective pupil-led anti-bullying policies. Our impact is demonstrated through Ofsted reports, schools displaying pupils’ anti-bullying policies and frequent repeat visits.
All our volunteers are LGBT+ university students who have recently come through the education system, and so can relate to homophobic bullying and coming out at school. As the curriculum does not make LGBT+ education compulsory, many of us felt we couldn’t be ourselves at school. Our aim in every session is to be the person we needed when we were younger and ensure no more students suffer in silence.
