As part of a 50 year vision for Sutton Park, the Council would like to invite users of the park (young and old!) to give some feedback on what makes the park special and ideas on how to improve the park appearance and facilities.

This is your chance to have your say about the future of Sutton Park!

The Campaign for Learning is launching an online Treasure Hunt Challenge for families to do together. It involves answering three maths questions to find a location on a map where the pirate treasure is buried. All entries will be put into a draw with the chance to win some great family prizes.

The Treasure Hunt Challenge will go live on Monday 29 September and you will have until the end of October to complete the challenge and submit your entry.  So, get your family brains together to solve the clues and find the treasure!

Thank you for your help - we really couldn't do this without you!


Sustran's Connect2 project was voted by you as the worthy winner of The People's 50 million funded through the National Lottery, scooping 42% of the overall votes!

The project will transform 79 communities across the UK, improving local travel through the creation of new walking and cycling routes for everyday journeys.  On a local level, the aim is to create a continous spine route running from the Whitehouse Common/Good Hope Hospital area and south to the Pype Hayes area, taking in Rectory Park, Newhall Valley Country Park and Pype Hayes Park.  Further information about the project will be available in the New Year.  Watch this space!


It's that time of year again and on behalf of the Sutton East Extended Services (SEES) cluster I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your support so far - we look forward to working with you in the new year.

With our best wishes for a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!


The SEES website has been nominated to feature as website of the week on the Birmingham Grid for Learning (BGFL) homepage, starting from Monday 10 December through to Sunday 16 December 2007.

The BGFL website is accessed by all schools throughout Birmingham and can be seen around the world on the world wide web!  The BGFL is a huge community resource for all learners of all ages.

We're really pleased that our website has been chosen for this feature - be sure to check the BGFL homepage when our time comes!


A carbon footprint is a measure of the impact human activities have on the environment in terms of the amount of greenhouse gases produced, measured in units of carbon dioxide.

Carbon Detectives is an interactive online resource package for KS2 and KS3 pupils to help them investigate the sustainability performance of their own school.  Upon registration, schools must identify a team of pupils (possibly School Council) to conduct a series of on-site consultation and audit exercises to calculate the school's CO₂ results and the size of the carbon footprint.  The website offers ideas on setting targets to reduce the level of CO₂ and offers comparisons against other schools.

Overall, a great opportunity for young people to contribute positively towards a low carbon future and tackling the issue of climate change.
