Welcome to Sandown School and 2018!

An interesting week at the gate with such inclement weather. Hopefully the wind and rain will leave us alone next week. In a bid to ensure children are not late into school we will be opening the gate to the playground every morning at 8.40 am and closing it at 8.55am to allow time for the children to reach their class by 9.00am when the register closes. Thank you for your continued support ensuring your children are in school everyday.

It was fabulous to see so many parents in Year One on Thursday morning. I hope you enjoyed spending time with your child in their class and participating in the activities – I saw some rather good shapes constructed and finger paintings.

Well done to Mrs Collins and all the Green Zoners who have been awarded the Bronze Award from the RSPB.

We are still awaiting news on Mrs Ham and her baby, as soon as we hear anything we will let you know!                                                                                                                  Kate Luxford


We recently received a letter regarding our recent Ofsted inspection, from

 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.
