Sutton Mental Health Support Team


The Avenue Primary Academy community is deeply saddened by the news that Queen Elizabeth II has passed away.


Today, and next week, we will mark this significant event by reflecting on her remarkable life and service.


A book of condolence will be opened for the children next week.


We are all really looking forward to meeting the children on Monday 5th September or Tuesday 6th September at their Stay and Play visit. Each child will have their own one hour slot and start date already sent to them. We will then welcome the children as they start their first session at Nursery.
