Operation Santa III #parenthub

For the third year running Dudley CVS ( https://en-gb.facebook.com/CVSDudley/ ) have given Sutton School students a magical Christmas and a huge smile on their faces. Staff from Sutton School picked up a huge selection of gifts for pupils at our school. The organisation has been running for many years and with the help of businesses have collected donations to distribute to local causes and put smiles on children's faces across the borough.

Today each student from Sutton School had the chance to meet with Santa choose a present from a big selection of donated gifts. Mr Charles headteacher, the staff and pupils are overwhelmed with the generosity which they have once again received from Dudley CVS and Operation Santa.

Sutton Christmas Fayre #parenthub

Friends Of Sutton School with support from Sutton School Staff put on the best Christmas Fayre that Sutton School has ever seen.

Students were given time in the afternoon to visit the Christmas Fayre and enjoy all of the festive stalls that the Friends Of Sutton kindly put on. There were Christmas decorations, craft stalls, tombolas, a raffle and even Christmas games. Father Christmas also visited the Christmas Fayre in the evening where parents and students could visit him in his fabulous grotto which was created by the amazing Ms Charles-Drake.

Everyone had a fantastic time and we were overwhelmed by the amount of support from the people who visited and helped make the day extra special.

A big big thank you to the Friends Of Sutton School.

Merry Christmas Everyone

Maths Whizz Winter Adventure #parenthub


Keeping children constructively entertained over the festive season can be tough. Every year the Whizz Winter Adventure helps children continue making progress on their learning journeys between their busy present-opening schedules!

All Math-Whizz students will have access to this year’s Winter Adventure from December 15 2014 (as long as they have completed their initial assessment). As a fun form of learning loss prevention, it’s more than a great way to keep your child entertained throughout the festive season – it also gives them an advantage when they return to school.

The Whizz Winter Adventure contains 12 festive themed activities: 6 are game-style activities and 6 ‘Around the World’ festivities quizzes.

During the Winter Adventure, your child will receive a special star for every 30 credits they earn. These stars can be redeemed in order to progress through the Winter Adventure – each activity requires two stars and each quiz requires one. Each time an activity is completed, a puzzle piece of a special winter scene is unlocked. Once every puzzle piece is revealed, the scene comes alive!

Make sure your child completes the activities and quizzes before January 6 2015 in order to unveil the special Christmas scene.

Log in or subscribe to make sure your child's math education stays on track this winter!



Pathway Police! #parenthub

On Tuesday, Year 9 pupils in the Community and Well-Being Pathway had a visit from two of our local police officers. Pupils learnt about the role of a PCSO, had a go with some specialist equipment and even got to listen to a live stream through the walkie-talkie of police being called to an incident in Dudley town centre! Thank you to our officers Laura and Becky for your continued support.


A True Christmas Extravaganza! #parenthub

A true Christmas extravaganza!

From walking in the air to magical wardrobes this was a production that took in a host of Christmas Myths and Legends. The 5 star student cast acted, danced and sang their way through every fairy tail known to man, woman, child and elf alike. It was a fantastic night complemented by a capacity crowd who sang, cheered and boo’d their way through an enchanting adventure..

Well done to all of the students who performed, worked back stage and produced props, costumes and even merchandise for sale for the first time ever.

A big thank you also to the Performing Arts team and staff from Sutton School who helped make the evening such a success. A special mention should be given to Miss Mascall who produced and directed this spectacular original production. Next stop the West End!

Until next year…. have a magical Christmas one and all!

Sutton Events in December #parenthub

Here is a run-down of the events that are going on in and around school this month.

On the 12th December we have a mufti day. Pupils can attend in non-uniform. Under normal circumstances we ask for a £1 donation. However, this year ‘Friends of Sutton’ ask that pupils bring in an item for one of the raffles or tombola at our Christmas Fayre. Please make sure any food items are in date and please do not send pupils in with alcohol. An adult may donate alcohol items by dropping the items into the office personally.

On the 19th December we have our ‘Friends of Sutton’ Christmas Fayre. Pupils will be able to visit the stalls in the afternoon before school ends. Then it will re-open at 4.30 until 7pm for general access.

On the 21st December we have a Christmas Jumper Day. This is the last day of term. We ask that pupils bring in £1 as a donation. Don't forget that school finishes at 2pm ready for the Christmas Holidays!

Ho ho ho!

Cosford Air Museum #parenthub

A number of year 9 pupils planned a trip to Cosford as part of their Skills for Independence and Work qualification. We had a great day in a very empty museum so we got to do loads of stuff without fuss. We met 2 veterans of WW2, one who landed on the D-Day beaches and the other, pictured on the left who was a gunner in a tank in north Africa fighting against Rommel. His tank was hit three times and he suffered many injuries. He recounted his stories to us and showed us a book he was in. Even more remarkable was that he is over 100 years old!
