Welcome to Sudbury Primary School

        Sudbury Primary School is a small village school near the National Trust owned Sudbury Hall.  The school offers a high standard of care for children in a family atmosphere, with beautiful surroundings and extensive grounds.

Our new headteacher is currently redesigning our school website so please be patient if some of the pages are not yet completed - we will be adding to them throughout the year, including more of our own work.  We hope you like what you see, as much as we enjoy our school.

Headteacher: Mr David Brown


Under the 1996 Education Act, parents have a legal right to express a preference for which school they want their child to attend.  The Education Authority and school governors have a general duty to meet this preference - as long as it does not “prejudice the provision of efficient education or the efficient use of resources”.

In law there is no automatic right to a place in any particular school.

Parents can appeal to a panel, independent of both the LEA and the school, if their child is refused a place at the school for which they have expressed a preference.

The Local Education Authority is responsible for making general arrangements to place children at all Derbyshire’s schools and is the admission authority for community and voluntary controlled schools which includes setting the criteria to be used for admitting children to these schools.

Parents should bear in mind that school admissions are considered on an annual basis - so it is not possible to confirm that a place is available at a school any earlier than during the year before the child will join.

Each year schools have to admit eligible pupils on request up to their published admission number (as shown in the list at the back of the Parents Information Booklet) which takes account of past admissions and the amount of accommodation available.

Parents should note that admission authorities cannot necessarily guarantee a place for any child whose parents apply after the closing date.  This includes a child who moves into a school's normal area after that date.

In situations where late applications are received and the school’s admission number has been reached, but subsequently a place becomes available - if choices need to be made between normal area applications those children living nearest to the school (measured by the nearest available route) will be given preference.

Parents can apply for a school place through the school or online.  The website address is


  1. To provide very child with a broad and balanced education that will develop the skills and attitudes needed to enable them to reach their full potential.

  1. To encourage a high level of effort, positive attitude, challenge and achievement so that children can develop independence and an ability to apply themselves throughout their school days and beyond.

  1. To develop in children a sense of self-esteem, and confidence in their own worth and independence.

  1. To create a working environment within the school in which children may exercise choice and so develop self-discipline and a responsibility for their own actions.

  1. To promote a sense of enquiry and enthusiasm for new experiences in children and staff.

  1. To teach pupils to value the local and global environments in which we live.

  1. To encourage parents to play an active part in the life of the school, and forge links with the community.

  1. To develop an awareness of other people and an understanding and respect for other religions and cultures.


The National Curriculum is followed throughout the school and our own schemes of work are balanced, broadly based and promote development in all the main areas of learning and experience.  We seek to educate each child as an individual, as a member of society and as a future adult member of the community.  We achieve this through a variety of teaching and learning methods.


Our main aim is to enable all children to realise their own potential by building on their strengths and overcoming any difficulties they may encounter.


We believe that success fosters success and that it is by honest encouragement and praise from both home and school that children are made to feel secure, cared for and happy.  It is in this environment that learning takes place and children acquire a sense of self-esteem and confidence.


We value the important partnership between home and school and hold information evenings to keep parents informed about our current practice.


The wearing of school uniform is encouraged.  It contributes to the school’s image and promotes a sense of belonging.  During the school day children should wear:-

  • Sensible shoes                                 black, brown or blue.
  • Trousers                                             grey
  • Skirts                                                  grey.

  • Sweater/Sweatshirt/Cardigan         royal blue.


Reasonably priced items of school uniform in the school colours and with the school logo on can be ordered directly from school.


To protect the uniform, a painting overall or old shirt should be worn for messy activities.
