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.
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. This year:
Sutton Education Trust Art exhibition in Sutton Central library where all the children from all the schools contributed to an art exhibition around the theme of 'autumn through the eyes of famous artists. Click here to see the amazing art work.
Joint INSET for all the schools High View and Dorchester Primary Schools hosted well-being INSETs for all staff in all the schools run by The Art of Brilliance. Not only did staff learn a lot about their own well-being but a good time was had by all.
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'.

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.
At the Sutton Education Trust each child is valued, educated, enthused through the collaboration opportunities of the 8 member schools
