HEADTEACHER'S BLOG: Term 6 is proving to be a very busy term – we will all need a rest at the end of it. Sports Days last week were an amazing success and it was fantastic to see so many parents and relatives there – we were very lucky with the weather.

On Tuesday evening this week we had our welcome meeting for the new Year R parents. It was great to see such good attendance and is so exciting to look forward to new children and families starting their educational journey with us.

It has been a week of successes; we very proudly announced our Bronze Young Carers Award. This is such an important aspect to Sandown and to have external acknowledgement of this group is incredible. The school also won the Deal Learning Alliance Football shield, another sporting achievement to add to the growing list. This week we have had Inter-House sports on the field – what always impresses me is the children’s positive nature and their team spirit, an excellent illustration of collaboration. Next week we turn our attention to the KS1 Spelling Bee Final at The Goodwin Academy on Tuesday. If you have ever witnessed this event it is perhaps the most nerve wracking competition to observe. Good luck team!

So next week, what a week! The school’s production of Disney’s Jungle Book comes to life. The school will be watching the show at The Astor Theatre on Tuesday afternoon for KS1 and Wednesday afternoon for KS2. The evening performances are on Wednesday and Thursday and tickets are for sale at the school office. This is an eagerly awaited event – so see you there!

After such an exhausting week remember that Friday 23 June and Monday 26 June are training days for staff and the school is closed for children.

See you at the gate. Until the 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.
