Welcome to Long Sutton County Primary School

Thank you for visiting our website. Our vision is to strive for the highest academic standards, team work and a strong sense of community spirit. This is summed up in our school motto of 'Be a Star!' which was developed  by staff and pupils.

Long Sutton County Primary School is incredibly proud of serving the whole community as the only Primary in the town of Long Sutton. We look to link with local groups and charities to support the local community. 

Our parents are extremely supportive and work together with the school to help move the school forward. We have committed staff, who strive to provide a range of exciting and engaging learning opportunities for our children. The staff are supported and encouraged by the school's Governors, who are dedicated to ensuring every child has the opportunities to reach their full potential. We strive to promote a happy and productive relationship with the whole school community and we are confident that by working together we can provide the best educational opportunities possible for our children. All of this has been demonstrated by the way in which the school has developed over recent years and our 'good' OFSTED report

The school is also supported superbly by 'Friends of Long Sutton County Primary School' Association, who offer their time and energy to help fund projects that often could not be afforded without their kind donations. They organise a range of social activities which bring parents and the local community together to raise money for the school including discos, football matches, fashion shows and quiz nights.

We hope that you like what you see and will come to visit us and see everything that our children are doing.

News and Events
Harvest Festival

Just to remind you that our Harvest Festivals are to be held in the school hall on Thursday 17th October.

Parents are warmly invited to join with us as we celebrate harvest time, are thankful for the food we enjoy and all the energies that are spent in producing it. We will also take the opportunity to consider and help families in our community who may be struggling at this time.

We will again be supporting the local foodbank. Agape Care Foodbank provides a minimum of three days non-perishable emergency food to local people in crisis. If you would like to support this charity, there is a shopping list of items the charity has requested on the reverse of this flyer. They have supported many families in Long Sutton this year.

We would be very grateful if children would bring their gifts to school with them on the morning of the Harvest Festival. Thank you for your continued support We look forward to welcoming you to our Harvest Festival.

Early Bird Week

Many thanks to all of you for supporting our attendance drive. School attendance currently stands at 96.8% and we are seeing most children arriving at school in time ready to line up after the bell goes at 8:50am.

As we continue in our efforts to improve attendance and punctuality, next week we will be holding the first of our half-termly Early Bird Weeks. The aim of this week is for children to arrive to school on time, every day, ready to line up after the bell goes at 8:50am. For children who achieve this, they will be entered into a prize draw to win a £10 gift card.

Improving school attendance is a key priority for the school as we are committed to providing a full and rewarding education for all our pupils. Please remember our school target for attendance is 96%.

We will continue to provide key updates on attendance as the year progresses. If you have any questions regarding your child’s attendance or punctuality, please do come and speak to us.
