Sutton Valence Primary School


Our mission is to ensure we all participate in the constant quest of knowledge, learning and adventure so that each individual can build upon their core strengths to aspire to make a real difference.



Our PTFA raise valuable funds through a variety of events, which are both enjoyable for children, staff, governors and parents alike. All parents/carers are automatically members of our PTFA once their child starts school and any support, however little, is really appreciated.

2019 AGM Meeting Minutes

Our aim over the last year has been to run fun events for the children, parents and carers at the school - it’s about helping to build great memories for the children, not just fundraising. With all of your support over the last year we have raised £10,851 and spent £5,833 on the following - class Kindles, croissants for Bastille Day, RE books, Writing on the Wall theatre workshop, Christmas crackers, Numicon maths equipment, year 6 leavers hoodies, and ice poles for Sports Day. Our events have been the Craft & Movie Night, Halloween, Valentine’s and Summer Outdoor Disco, Bingo Night, Summer Fair, Welcome Back camping weekend and we also have our Quiz Night and Halloween Disco to look forward to later this term (see dates below).
