 Welcome to Sandown School

 Firstly, well done to all our Year 6 pupils who have now completed their statutory tests – they were incredibly mature and diligent and a credit to their families and the school. Our amazing Year 2s have also been undertaking tests recently but don’t ask them about them – they won’t tell you anything as they are all MI6 agents!

The school looks very colourful today; the children and staff look great in red, white and blue and check out the bunting. Friends of Sandown have organised the sponsored bouncy assault course today. Sponsorship money is kindly requested by the 25 May (next Friday). 

Next week is the last week before the half term break; we welcome the Headteachers and maths leaders from Kingsdown, Hornbeam and Deal Parochial who are coming to look at our mathematics on Wednesday. We are all working very hard to ensure the children are enjoying their maths and making excellent progress and have invited these schools to share the good practice at Sandown.

Sadly, we will be saying goodbye to Mr Hawthorne – Nelson at the end of this term who is leaving for personal reasons. 4HN will meet their new teacher this Monday, Miss Kaschner. The two teachers will be working together all week to ensure there is a good transition for the children in the class.


See you at the gate!                                                                        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.
