HEADTEACHER'S BLOG:  Latest update on Tigger: he is still having a thoroughly lovely time in Mauritius and has decided to extend his stay.  He has sent the school 'The Gift of Time'.  Sandown is now in proud possession of a beautiful timepiece which is displayed in the entrance area.  For every class that concludes the week with no-one being late, wins an extra 10minutes of playtime and their class is proudly displayed beneath the clock.  The children are doing so well, last week 11 classes won an extra playtime - well done!

Year 1 went to Wingham Wildlife Park on Monday.  They came back into school having had a fantastic day full of fun and learning.  I'm sure their experiences of the day will motivate and inspire their learning this term.

Friday has seen the school turn into a science wonderland.  Many thanks to Mrs Uppal and Pfizer for organising the STEM day. It has been fantastic to see the learning and enjoyment around the school, days like today epitomises what Sandown is all about.  

Thank you to everyone who was involved in the organisation and support of the Friends of Sandown's first big event last Friday.  What a lovely way to finish the week - amazing to see the desire to win chocolate was still there even after Easter!  The money raised has been directed to Mrs Collins to support the activities at Green Zone.  Again, thank you.

Just to remind you, Monday is a Bank Holiday so we will see you bright and early on Tuesday 2nd May.

See you at the gate.  Until next term ... ...                                         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.
