Sutton Manor School is a school ‘where children shine’ and all who are involved with the school, work very hard to ensure our children have many and varied opportunities to do so. School is at the heart of the community we serve.

Our shared vision is that we provide a happy, nurturing environment, which is welcoming, attractive and safe, ensuring the needs of all children are met.


We are really looking forwards to welcoming our children back to school on Thursday 2nd September. There have been some changes to the guidance for schools over the summer and details were sent out via Parent App. Please check that you have received this as start and finishing times and entrance and exit gates have changed.

All children will now start school at 8.55am, but our three gates on Tennyson Street, Forest Road and Preston Street will remain in operation. All gates will open at 8.45am and will close at 8.55am.

School will finish at either 3.15pm or 3.20pm, dependent on your child's class.

School is looking lovely and clean, Mr Grundy and his team have worked extremely hard ensuring everywhere is clean and tidy. The teachers have been in over the summer to get their classrooms ready too!

Can't wait to have you all back and welcome our new children to Reception and Nursery!


We are a GOOD school-  We have maintained the good quality of education in the school. We set consistently high expectations for pupils' work across the school. 

The very caring relationships that have been established between staff and pupils mean that pupils feel safe. OFSTED 2017
