Welcome to Sutton-Cum-Lound Church of England (VA) Primary School

A welcome from the Head Teacher…..


Thank you for taking the time to find out about our school!

We are a small school at the heart of its community just outside Retford in the village of Sutton-cum-Lound. We boast small class sizes and state of the art facilities.  We have newly refurbished classrooms and a beautiful new outdoor learning area.  We are very proud of the links we have with the village, church and the local area.


We were delighted that the school was recognised by Ofsted in February 2015 awarding us a Good grade across all areas.

Children have the opportunity to join the pre-school on site, Portland Place, who take children from two years old. Pre-school is open daily from 9.00am to 3.00pm and on Mondays they hold a parent and toddler session from 1pm - 3pm. 

Children can then join Sutton in Foundation 2 (also referred to as reception).  Making the decision about which school is the right school for your child can be a difficult one, but we hope that this website will help you make that decision and give you a flavour of Sutton-cum-Lound School and the learning opportunities we provide.

Our committed and caring staff work hard to make our school a friendly and secure place in which all children succeed and strive to achieve their full potential in a happy environment. We are enthusiastic about our work with the children and the experiences provided at Sutton-cum-Lound School. We believe it is vital that children learn skills for life; to be confident and independent, who have high expectations and aspire to make a positive contribution to society.


We offer extended provision with a breakfast club from 8am as well as opportunities for children to start in the pre-school. Our Sutton Club is open daily from 3.15-6.00pm (more details in the After School and Breakfast Club section of the website).  A range of extra-curricular activities after school enable children to learn a wide range of skills from sports to the arts. Take a look at the Preschool and Clubs section of the website for more information.

Being a small village school, we also enjoy the links we have with the family of schools. These links support and enhance the curriculum and wider experiences we provide for the children from sporting events to multi-cultural learning opportunities.


This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils. It is not, however, intended to replace the best form of communication; that of personal contact between home and school. I would welcome the opportunity to meet you and your child, to show you around and discuss the opportunities Sutton-cum-Lound can provide. Please contact the school direct to arrange a convenient time to visit or with any queries you may have.

We all look forward to working in partnership with you, for the benefit of your child, our school and the community.

Thank you for visiting!

Mrs. Nadine Wilkinson
Head Teacher
