Welcome to the Sutton Education Trust
The Sutton Education Trust was set up on 1st February 2017. The Trust comprises of the following 7 Sutton schools: Beddington Infants; Culvers House Primary; Dorchester Primary; Foresters Primary; High View Primary; Muschamp Primary and Nonsuch Primary. There.
The Sutton Education Trust is a Co-operative Trust which means that stakeholders, be they pupils, staff, parents/ carers, governors are full members and contribute in many ways. People who work and live locally, family members of our children as well as past pupils themselves can also join the Trust. There are also opportunities for other groups or bodies such as other schools and educational establishments to join the Trust. The Co-operative Trust school model means, that in a very real sense, schools will be increasingly owned mutually by their parents, pupils and staff plus their wider communities. All the schools currently involved made the decision to become the founding members of the Sutton Education Trust (SET) because it gives them the opportunity to collaborate and learn from each other while protecting the individual nature of each of the schools.

Our unique Trust allows schools the opportunity to work together and give their children and staff opportunities that they would not be able to do by themselves.
Assessment: All the schools worked together on moderation of work at years 2 and years 6 to ensure consistent assessment across the Trust schools.
Trust schools worked together on a skills progression on all foundation subjects to support consistent assessment in these subjects across all the Trust schools.
Den day: Schools across the Trust ran a Den Day for children where they build their own dens from rubbish that had been collected. Not only did all the children have a wonderful time but they learnt about how children in poorer countries might have to live. Money raised from den day was sent to Save the Children.
Launch of Trust 'Powers Booklets': On 19th October all staff from all the Trust schools got together for an INSET on resilience and the launch of the new 'Powers' booklets. One booklet will be given to each child in each school and be used as a record of their achievement over time in demonstrating times when they have used the 'powers'. To find out more click here or on the 'Powers' tab above.
Early Talk project: All the Trust schools are working together to develop an exciting project to support the communication needs of children under 5 in partnership with parents. Find out more by clicking here.
Article in 'The Voice' magazine: The spring 2019 issue of 'The Voice' magazine published by The Institute of School Business Leadership ran an article on the formation of the Sutton Education Trust. It briefly charts the journey of the Trust from inception to creation. Click here to read the article.
Greater Depth Project: One of our core values as a Trust is to further learning across all our schools and one way to do this is run research projects. Our first project will look at 'Greater Depth' and how we can embed this across all our schools. We are welcoming applications from teachers across all our schools to join this project.

Sport : Just before half term, teams from all the schools visited Crystal Palace (a Trust partner) to take part in a football festival. The children were particularly excited to have a chance to play football on a Premiership football pitch. See photos in the blog here.
Marsden March: All the SET schools took part in the own Marsden Marches during May and June and a mammoth £12,000 was collected! Head boys and girls from all the schools presented the £12,000 cheque to the Marsden on 21st June. Click here to read the blog.
SET in Bloom: During the month of June all the schools took part in a SET in Bloom contest. Even schools without gardens created mini gardens in wheelbarrows and they all looked very pretty indeed! The contest was judged by local MP Tom Brake and you can read his comments here.
2nd Trust INSET day - just before half term, the Trust ran it's second INSET day involving all the schools. The speaker this year came from Laughology and the focus of the day was on developing a greater understanding of mental health specifically around psychology of humour, laughter and happiness. Here.
Greater Depth Research Group - the group have been our visiting schools outside the Trust to learn from their good practice in order to inform our research project.
