Dear Parents and Carers,

Sunnyside Academy is part of Ad Astra Trust, a Trust dedicated to improving outcomes for all. Working with our partner Academies within Ad Astra Trust, we strive to ensure that we offer a caring, memorable journey that will inspire them to be the best that they can be.

As a mainstream academy with specialist designated unit provisions, Sunnyside is a fully inclusive and exciting learning community. Unlocking each child’s unique potential is at the heart of learning.

At Sunnyside Academy we realise the important role that we play in preparing your child for adult life. We begin caring for your child as soon as your family walks through the door. We believe that each step of your child’s education is as important as the one before. With this in mind, we continue to provide inspiring and memorable learning experiences throughout their learning journey.

We recognise that children learn in different ways but that they learn best when they are motivated by a curriculum that is stimulating, fun and underpinned by key basic skills.

Sunnyside is a happy school where children feel safe and valued. We aim to support all children to be confident, reflective and playful learners, filled with their own sense of purpose and self-belief. We admire their increasing levels of academic, sporting and artistic achievement, as everyone strives to reach their full potential.

Children and staff nurture and care for one another and demonstrate respect for others from different backgrounds and beliefs, building a real sense of community.

We are incredibly proud of our learning community and the dedication and passion every member of this community represents.  We look forward to working with you during your stay at Sunnyside Academy.
