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.

Challenge Partners - Quality Assurance Visit 2015-2016

Challenge Partners is a practitioner-led national network of schools that improves school performance through peer-to- peer challenge and knowledge sharing. Each school in Challenge Partners receives an annual Quality Assurance (QA) Review. The QA Review is a peer review involving senior leaders from other schools in the partnership. The review has a whole-school remit and focuses on teaching and learning, which enables practitioners to have deep conversations about the quality of learning in the school being reviewed.

Our Challenge Partners Quality Assurance Review in November 2016 found many positive indicators. We are proud of our achievements and our positive journey was recognised and celebrated. We are currently awaiting our first Ofsted Inspection as Sunnyside Spencer Academy.

We are pleased to say that 'Pupil Leadership' was confirmed as our Area of Excellent Practice. One of our School Development Plan Key Aims is to continue to develop high quality leadership at every level; our pupils are no exception to this! They are active members of our school community, making sure that Sunnyside shines every day.

Broad and Balanced Curriculum:

PBI have worked in primary education since 1996, including 6 years teaching at Fairfield Primary School, which is now part of the Spencer Academy Trust. During this time, I worked with several primary schools in the area including Sunnyside Primary - through sport, ICT, assessment and Y6/7 transition to George Spencer.

After moving on from Fairfield in 2008, I have been a member of the senior leadership team of several primary schools and academies, most recently as Principal of Mansfield Primary Academy.

I'm looking forward to renewing my links within the Spencer Academy Trust, whilst utilising my experience of leadership in primary education, to ensure the pupils at Sunnyside Spencer Academy are given every opportunity to SHINE! I will be a member of the School Effectiveness and Finance Committees, along with the Full Governing Body.
