School Policies

Sutton in Craven CP School is committed to the value of each individual & the development of self-worth. Together we aim for excellent progress and high attainment in knowledge, understanding & skills. At our school we aim to develop attitudes & values, which will help every child to become a strong, independent individual who can contribute effectively & generously to the life of society.

We set high expectations for learning, behaviour & social development because we believe that excellence is most likely to be achieved when children are motivated to attain the highest standards of which they are capable, in a climate of caring support.
