Sutton Road Primary and Nursery


Learning doesn't just happen in the classroom!

At Sutton Road Primary we aim to provide children with a range of opportunities then enable them to develop their cultural capital. Through these opportunities we will expose our children to a large variety of subject areas and arts; promoting character-building qualities that lead to creating well-rounded, global citizens who are ready to succeed in later life. 

We strive hard to ensure that children's curriculum learning is enhanced through opportunities to explore and experience things "first-hand" and that children and families are supported to access extracurricular activities that develop further the knowledge and skills that they have been taught in school.

Here at Sutton Road there are lots of things that happen that our children get the opportunity to be involved in outside the classroom, here are just a few...

School Games Mark

We are incredibly proud to have achieved the Platinum Sport Mark Award for all the work done around keeping our children active. 

Library visits:

All of our children in Key Stage 2 visit Mansfield Library, the children can browse and read a book while they are there, or they can use their library card to borrow books to read at home.


Road Safety Workshops

Road Safety workshops are delivered to all year groups looking at what we need to do before crossing the road and dangers we need to be aware. It is great session had by all.



Take Five & the Take Five Ambassadors

Take Five at school has been developed by Each Amazing Breath, a ‘not for profit’ organisation. For more information see 

It is a whole school resilience programme based on breathing, grounding and awareness. It is supportive of improved mental wellbeing and provides children with a practical tool to help them self-manage their own behaviour.

Sutton Road Primary School started the programme after staff training. Once staff became confident at delivering the breathing practices, the school moved into the next phase. Eighteen children undertook training to become Take Five Ambassadors, capable of leading practices within the school.

The next phase we are just about the commence is 'train the trainers'. This will involve our current ambassadors training a further twenty children with the support of our Take Five Lead, Mrs Darwood-Brown.

Sports Competitions

Our PE leader is always planning different sports events - here are a few. take a look at the PE newsletter on the PE page for more details.

  • Our year 5 team (David, Ben, Ross, Louie, Fraiser, Oscar and Kian). Travelled to West Notts College to play in the annual ESFA national competition. The winners would represent Mansfield in the Nottinghamshire qualifier.


Sutton Road Mobile Library

Our Mobile Library is set up and is open every Tuesday and Wednesday morning before school (8-8.30). Please come and visit and share a story.




Each year our Year 5 children get the opportunity, if they choose to, to be involved in Bikeability. This is a road and bike safety course for children to ensure they are safe on the roads. 

Monster Phonics Day

Nursery, F2, Year 1 and Year 2 all had a Monster Phonic day. The children came dressed as their favourite monster. Each character is linked to a sound and in Nursery and F2 the children are introduced to the monsters and the first set of Phonemes. During the day the classes took part in fun activities all about the monsters.


Book Fair

Sutton Road held our annual book fair, this year the fair was a great success and due to the number of books bought by our staff and families, the school received more than 70 books for our children to use in school – THANK YOU everyone.


Red Nose Day Fun

Children with silly hair for Red Nose Day today. #RedNoseDay2023

Finland visitors

For a number of years Mrs Davies our Executive Head has had links with a school in Finland and over previous years we have even taken children from Sutton Road to Finland to visit the families and the school.

This year, post Covid our Finland visitors came to England and came to Mansfield to say hello, they spent time visiting some of the sights in the local area, but also joined in with our Year5 children for a game of bowling and a school disco.
