Welcome to Sutton Upon Derwent CE Primary School’s website which we hope will provide you with a window into our school.

We are a Church of England Primary School set in the attractive village of Sutton Upon Derwent which is 8 miles from York and easily accessible from the A64/B1228 and the A1079. The school has entered into a collaboration with nearby Bugthorpe CE Primary School, sharing a Head teacher and working closely with its sister school to the mutual benefit of all pupils. The school’s ethos is underpinned by our Christian Values, and we are proud of our strong links with the village church of St Michael and All The Angels.

Sutton Upon Derwent School is small enough to foster a close-knit, family atmosphere, but large enough to offer an exciting range of opportunities to its pupils. The school has well-resourced grounds that offer both play-opportunities and the scope for an interesting, interactive and varied curriculum.

We are a friendly, welcoming and inclusive community where every child receives the best possible education in a safe and caring environment. Pupils with additional needs are supported by programmes of work which are individually designed to enable them to make maximum progress.

Sutton Upon Derwent School offers a broad, exciting and challenging curriculum that provides the building blocks for our pupils’ physical, intellectual, emotional development, and well-being: as well as instilling in them a thirst for lifelong learning.

Our pupils are offered a wide range of high-quality sports by our Sports Coach. They take part in local matches and tournaments and enjoy considerable success in them.

We highly value our parents and carers and see them as equal partners in their child’s education.

We hope that we have stimulated your curiosity to see our school and welcome visits from prospective parents/carers.
