Welcome to Sunnyside Spencer Academy!

Everything we do at Sunnyside is about providing our children with an excellent education and enriching experiences to promote a love of learning. Our aim for our school community is for all to grow and shine! 

We think Sunnyside is a very special place to be because of our wonderful children. We strive to provide the very highest standards of education within a caring, exciting and stimulating environment. We want our children to be excited by the curriculum and challenged to achieve their full potential. We want our children to enjoy their learning and feel valued. By working closely with our parents and governors, we ensure that all our children have an excellent start to their educational journey. 


Sunnyside is a community that:

  •  Is aspirational and successful in meeting high expectations.
  • Promotes happiness through being kind, supportive and empathetic towards others.
  • Together will achieve independent life long learners.
  • Provides a nurturing environment which develops positive, tolerant, resilient citizens.
  •  Enriches the lives of all. 

We hope that our website captures the spirit of Sunnyside and the rich and varied opportunities children receive at our school. 

Parents/Carers are warmly welcomed to come in and help so please drop in and chat to a member of staff.



Why have a Student Voice?

  • A Student Voice benefits the whole school
  • It gives pupils a chance to express their views to the staff of the school
  • Pupils can have an input on important decisions
  • Pupils develop confidence and communication skills

At Sunnyside Spencer Academy the school has an elected student voice. The councillors are elected by their peers on an annual basis and represent them at regular meetings identifying issues and ideas that will help to improve different aspects of school life. Student Voice meets monthly to raise and discuss matters and to share progress and outcomes of the student voice meetings.

There is a council notice board in each classroom for pupils to refer to and suggest ideas.

The council have engaged in a number of initiatives, supporting Governors in the selection of new staff, identifying the charity that they would like to support for the academic year and organising a fundraising event and suggesting activities and ideas for themed events such as the Jubilee. They have a small budget to spend for which they need to determine best value for the all the pupils in school. They report to Governor's meeting once per term and the minutes of the meetings are displayed in the front entrance of the school.
