 Welcome to Sandown School

Thank you for bearing with us during this week of exceptional weather and exceptional activities for the second week of our whole school Festivals fortnight.

Monday assembly was a treat as we heard our talented children and adults entertaining everyone with jokes – my particular favourite being the one about the interrupting cow.

As always World Book Day has seen some amazing costumes – we are constantly surprised by the creativity displayed. The children enjoyed a story telling session in school and staff were able to share their favourite stories.

The school has been a hive of activity with carnival floats being designed and constructed and electric buggies being designed to drive the floats.

Our annual Holi festival is not quite how we planned due to extreme weather conditions but a great event none the less.

Stay warm and see you at the gate!

 Headteacher's Welcome

Sandown School is a hard working, fun and caring school with a passion for learning and achievement.

We are exceptionally proud of our children. They are bright and happy young people who enjoy being at school, each bringing unique talents to our community. Sandown School pupils have freedom and security to be themselves, and many opportunities to follow their interests and aspirations. At Sandown School we believe that children are better prepared for the future if they are equipped with the tools needed to enable them to become confident, independent, caring and emotionally intelligent individuals.

We hope you enjoy using this website to keep updated with life at Sandown.
