It is with mixed emotions that we announce the departure of Sajid Gulzar from his position as CEO of Prince Albert Community Trust. After more than 26 years of serving children across Birmingham and 14 dedicated years of service at PACT Sajid has decided to take on an exciting new role in Dubai with Kings’ Education.
Dear Parents / Carers,
As communicated via an email letter previously, school is expecting to be affected by National Strike Action by the NEU on Thursday 27th April and Tuesday 2nd May. We are unable to confirm which classes will/will not be affected until tomorrow morning as striking teachers are not required to inform school until the day of the strikes themself. Parents of affected classes will be texted as early as possible tomorrow morning to enable you to action alternative childcare plans. Classes of teachers who are not striking are expected in school as normal.
If you receive a text tomorrow regarding your child’s class being closed, please see below for the recommended home learning tasks for strike day. Page numbers refer to you child’s Collins homework book:
Please also continue to read with your child and work through their spellings with them.
Maths pages 62-63
Timestable book – 7 times tables pages 30-31
Please support your child to continue practising their times tables and specifically the ones that they currently find challenging.
If your child is entitled to a free school meal and requires a packed lunch to be made for collection from school, please follow the online forms link which will be sent to you in the morning. The kitchen will then prepare a lunchtime grab bag which can be collected from the main school office at midday.
The strike reflects teachers concerns with education funding and pay conditions nationally. We thank parents for your cooperation and support.
The Sutton Park Team
We are thrilled to announce that Sutton Park Primary has been selected by the Department for Education (DFE) to receive a school rebuild or substantial redevelopment works to its premises. Sutton Park Primary is one of 400 schools selected over the last two years as part of the school rebuilding programme.
Water competency is often misinterpreted by parents and guardians as their child being able to jump into a swimming pool and being able to put their face in the water. The reality is very different.
Learning to jump into a swimming pool is an important safety skill that children often achieve in the early stages of their learning to swim journey, as it is one of the outcomes in our Pre-School Framework
We are writing to inform you that we are proposing a reduction in the published admission number (PAN) for our school. We have been working with Birmingham City Council to plan for the future, specifically looking at the falling pupil numbers across the city due to a fall in birth rates.
It is proposed that the published admission number relating to the admission of children into Reception from September 2023 onwards be reduced to 30. The present published admission number is set at 60.
A copy of our proposed admission arrangements for 2023/2024 are available on our school website and by visiting:

Any comments received will be considered by the Trust Board during the Spring Term of 2022. The Trust Board will give full consideration to your comments before making its final decision on this proposal.
