What an amazing start to the London Project fortnight. The school looked absolutely fantastic on Monday, we had Mary Poppins, Oliver, London landmarks and famous Londoners everywhere – we would love it if everyone could wear their costumes again next Friday to celebrate the end of the fortnight and term.

Monday also saw everyone do a London Bus style tour around Deal. The children were so excited and the gentlemen who came with the bus where fantastic with the children explaining the ticketing system. Tuesday and Wednesday saw Sandown do battle near Deal Castle. The children apprehended a smuggler on the beach and left them handcuffed to a bench!

This week truly illustrates how learning can be fun and memorable. Next week we have Brian Moses, an author, leading workshops on London poetry in school and our brilliant Pupil Voice groups will be leading their groups for two activities. Lunch on Tuesday is a typical London meal and on Friday from 2.30pm you are all invited to share the learning the school has been doing in our open afternoon.

We really hope your children are enjoying this project as much as we are.

We also look forward to seeing you at the parent evenings next Monday and Tuesday.

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.
