Congratulations Green Zone for the Deal in Bloom Award – it is fantastic that the school has been recognised for the work in the community.

Again, another busy week showing prospective new parents around the school – they love the learning environment in Early Years and are impressed with all the different opportunities the children have to extend their talents. From Pupil Voice to Peer Mediators to Green Zone everyone has the chance to shine.

The Rotary Club presented our current Year 5 classes with a dictionary each this week. This is a fabulously generous gift and assists our older pupils with their learning on a daily basis. Thank you.

Our lovely Young Carers were invited to Deal Castle on Monday afternoon and helped plant hundreds of crocus bulbs – we will have to look out for them in the Spring.

So parents, can you name the 7 colours and feelings of our Colour Monster?

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.
