It’s official… Christmas is coming! Sandown is looking forward to the celebrations and being able to share this time with you. Please check the dates of all the up and coming events and we look forward to welcoming you into the school.

Next week we have Year R Christmas Craft event for parents in the hall in the morning on Wednesday followed by our Christmas Lunch – bring on the brussels! On Friday, Years 2 to 6 will be walking to The Goodwin Academy to watch their annual Pantomime – this year will be different as they will be in their new state of the art theatre. The following week we are all looking forward to the Year 1 production and the Carol Service at St George’s Church.

With regard to our Ofsted visit – we are waiting for the report and as soon as it is published on the Ofsted website we will ensure that everyone gets a copy.

It is quiz time… answers at the gate. Which song and who sang these words of a Christmas classic song? ‘But say a prayer and pray for the other ones’.

Until next week…                                                                             KATE LUXFORD

 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.
