We are collectively ambitious for our children and young people in Sutton. We believe every child should have the opportunity to get a good education regardless of what additional needs they may have. Together we want to provide them with the best chances to achieve their best outcomes in life whatever their starting point and prepare them effectively for adulthood.

The Education Bulletin is a regular communication from Local Area leaders to the educational community in Sutton, on areas of shared interest. Anyone can contribute to the education bulletin whether that be LBS, schools or colleges, Sutton CCG, and Health partners, many of whom make up the 550+ subscription list. Subscribe to the Education Bulletin, or find previous copies of the bulletin.

As part of NHS England's Ask Listen Do Project, the Department of Education has funded a leaflet to provide families with questions to ask of schools, and empower them in having successful planning discussion and securing next steps beyond year 11.
