Bugthorpe and Sutton upon Derwent C of E Federation



We have some new signage at school, which shares what we are all about. As a church school, our vision is the most important part of us and it tells you ‘who we are’ and ‘how we live’. It is important to embed this vision with all stakeholders. Every decision we make should focus on our school visions and it needs to be lived out and not ‘laminated’. Our signs will help the children to remember what we are striving to achieve; we treat all children as unique individuals made in God’s image, and passionately want our children to ‘follow their pathway’ in life and to ‘grow with confidence’, whilst in our loving school families. Proverbs (Sutton) teaches us that if you guide a child down the right path, they will continue to follow it when they are older, and will contribute positively to society. Matthew (Bugthorpeshows us that the seeds will only grow and flourish in the correct environment, with God’s help. This too links to the right ‘pathway’ in life – the best place to grow and develop.

We want all our children to thrive and flourish and have a love of life. The Church of England’s Vision for Education is based on John 10:10 – living life in all its fullness. We certainly believe our own school visions compliment this. Confidence, certainly helps play its part along the journey.


We are delighted to introduce our new school badge, which was designed by one of our Class 4 pupils in Spring 2021! I’m sure you will agree that they have done a fantastic job of capturing our school and community; we are proud to wear the badge! We phased this into our uniform from September 2021.
