PE & Sport Premium

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding  per annum to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding'. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Purpose of funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • new or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.

About Sutton-on-Sea Community Primary School

The School Today

Currently our school caters for children aged from 4 to 11 years of age. There are approximately 175 children on role, being taught in six classes. The school has its own canteen and chef and provides nutritious, delicious hot lunches. The school is a fully enclosed, offering a secure environment but still retains its friendly and welcoming ethos.

Our school is a happy and caring community where the relationships between teacher and child, between school and home and between school and the wider community are considered to be of special importance.

Our aim is to provide a secure and stimulating environment, where children are motivated to become independent learners and thinkers with high expectations. We recognise that your child is unique and we do our best to ensure that your child makes the most of his or her abilities.

Car Parking

There is no parking available in the School car park for parents/carers during school hours.  Please do not bring  your car down the school drive to bring or collect your child from school (unless on pre-arranged basis due to medical need). If you do drive a child to School, then please park sensibly and considerately, e.g on Sandringham Drive, Chanctonbury Way or Station Road.  Please make sure that you do not block people's driveways and that you adhere to parking restictions, i.e. do not park on the yellow zigzags outside the school. There is no access via the Chanctonbury Way entrance during the school day so please use the main pedestrian gate on Station Road if needed.

Your contact details

It is extremely important that the School Office has your up to date contact details.  Please contact the School Office to check yours are correct if you have had a change of phone number or address.


Please label your child's belongings, and then they can be returned back to you easily if they get lost.

School Policies

There are additional policies on most aspects of school life at Sutton on Sea CP School other than the ones displayed on our website.  If you would like to see a particular policy then please contact the School Office.

Toys and Games from home

Please do not let children bring in toys and games into School except at times when teachers may ask for them to be brought in for a specific purpose.

Dogs and pets

Please do not bring your dogs or pets onto the school grounds, either carried or otherwise.


Smoking is prohibited within all areas of the School site.

Bad language

Parents and Carers are asked to be 'good examples' and not to swear or use offensive language.  Parents unable to comply with this rule will not be allowed on the School premises.


If you have a complaint concerning any matter, please come and talk to us about it.  If, after you have been to talk to us, you are still not happy, please contact the Chair of Governors or any other Governor and talk to them.


We do not usually dispense medicine in school.  If your child requires antibiotics or other medicine we ask that if at all possible you come and speak with the School Office. If your child needs treatments such as inhalers or epi-pens, please inform the School Office and they will give you the necessary information and paperwork.

A Brief History of the School

Sutton Le Marsh National School was opened on 16th March 1863 with 44 pupils. On 26th March a supply of books and slates arrived and on 28th March a clock was put up. The school moved to its present location in 1902 but had to go back to the old site in 1915 when it was occupied by the military. Records show how the curriculum has changed. Around 1890 these subjects were included:

  • How to keep cows, horses, sheep, hens, bees
  • Forgework
  • Haymaking
  • Orchards
  • Butter and Cheesemaking

The first organised games lessons were in 1906. Modern aids were gradually introduced, the first school radio being given by the Urban District Council in December 1935. Exactly 60 years on, the school is donated PC's and Internet access facilities! The school became purely a primary school in 1952.

In the first 50 years the weather and demands of agriculture resulted in much absenteeism, as did some special events such as:

  • To see cannons fired on 17th June 1864
  • To see the new railway on 18th October 1877
  • The opening of Sutton - Alford tramway on 2nd April 1884
  • To see a seaplane on the shore on 2nd October 1914
  • The disastrous flood on 31st January 1953 when the sea breached the coastal defences. The school was flooded to a depth of three feet and had to be closed for two months.
  • In 1983 HRH The Duke of Edinburgh was a visitor.

School Milk

register for school milk

Did you know our school provides a school milk scheme?

By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.

“How much does it cost?”

Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.

“Why should I register my child?”

School milk provides your child with essential nutrients. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.

“How do I register my child?”

If your child is under five -

  1. Register here at Cool Milk or pick up a form from school.
