 Welcome to Sandown School

Welcome back after the Easter Break. We have a busy time ahead of us over the next two terms as we race towards the long Summer break. We would like to welcome some new pupils and families to Sandown who have joined us this week.

There are some changes at Sandown; Mrs Harris leaves us today to go on Maternity Leave; I am sure you will join us in wishing Mrs Harris, and her husband, good luck as they await the arrival of their first baby. Mrs Male will be returning to Sandown next week and we are all looking forward to her return and the support she gives families and the Young Carers. Finally, Mr Brown will be leaving Sandown on 27 April to start a new job at Stonewall in London. We wish him every success and happines as he takes on a very new and challenging role.

Monday 23 April is a special day in Deal. The Royal Marines will be marching through the town and this is the culmination and celebration of a project that Sandown and other Deal schools have been involved in. If you would like to collect your child from school from 1.30pm on Monday to go to the parade please do so. A letter has gone home but if you have any questions please ask. Be aware that there are road closures which may impact on the end of the school day.

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.
