Welcome - Our ethos and values

Welcome from Helena Lewis


As Principal, I am delighted to welcome you to our school website.
At Sudell Primary School, we are proud of our supportive school community of children, staff and parents. We strive to ensure that each child has his or her individual needs met and can achieve success through creative teaching and learning, setting aspirational targets and ensuring a safe learning environment.
We are fortunate to have a dedicated team of staff who are utterly committed to the children in their care, and by working with our families to teach children to be confident, co-operative and responsible individuals, we are preparing them for the next steps in their learning journey.

I am proud and fortunate to be the Principal of Sudell Primary School and my team and I look forward to working in partnership with you to ensure the very best possible start to your child’s education.

Ethos and Values


Sudell School (in various forms) has been part of the community since 1909. Recognising this historic foundation, we aim to serve the community by providing the highest possible quality of education within an entrepreneurial context (a key part of The Aldridge Family of Schools). We recognise that children learn most effectively when they are in a safe and happy environment and learning is engaging and fun.


Children get one chance at a primary school education; that's we leave nothing to chance!



“A good education gives people skills and qualifications, and it instills confidence, along with preparing young people for the challenges of life. Everyone has the right to expect an exciting, engaging and relevant education, regardless of who they are, or where they live.”


Sir Rod Aldridge OBE, Founder



We aim to:


Provide an entrepreneurial education which develops:


- creativity

- determination

- passion

- problem solving

And to:

At Sudell, all of our children are stars... it's our job to help them shine!
