HEADTEACHER'S BLOG: We hope you had a lovely half term break and feel rested and raring to go!    

This week we have had our Jungle Book Collaboration week.  One of the strengths of weeks like this is observing children throughout the school working together. The year groups have been collaborating for 3 afternoons within their Pupil Voice groups.  These afternoons have been filled with singing and art, and culminated in a delightful sharing assembly on Friday afternoon.

We would like to thank you for your continued support for Jungle Book.  Time is passing quickly and before we know it, the production will be here and I am sure it will be an amazing event which we all will be proud of.

As you may be aware, we have some new additions to the school in the form of delightful fluffy chicks.  If you have access to the internet, have a look at the live streaming of the chicks on our website and thank you for the great comments posted on Facebook regarding the chicks!

At the start of the week Robert, our Educational Welfare Officer, met with a few families to support with attendance.  Thank you for your continued assistance with with matter.

The NSPCC carried out workshops in Years 5 and 6, and we did the Sponsored Walk on Wednesday.  Could any sponsorship money come into school at the beginning of next week?  The lady from the NSPCC will be back next week to take an assembly to say thank you.  See you at the gate.  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.
