 Welcome to Sandown School

Sandown is all about learning and creating memorable experiences that the pupils can reflect on and use in their learning. Green Zone and trips are key examples of this. When we return after the half term break the whole school will be immersed in the history of 100 years ago and the end of The Great War. This commemoration is hugely significant and Sandown feels strongly that the pupils of Sandown have the opportunity to learn about this significant historical event. We really hope they enjoy the experiences and come home buzzing from their learning.

We are a learning community and we feel it is important that we all continue to learn. We are really pleased to welcome our new group of Canterbury Christ Church teaching students who will be with us for the year. The staff enjoy supporting them and watching them become confident classroom practitioners.

Parent Evenings are next week (not 1H), so we hope to see everyone either on Monday or Tuesday after school. Sandown also has our School Improvement Advisor in next Thursday and I am sure she will be impressed by the pupils and staff and how our learning is real and relevant.

Reminder; the children get an early start to their half term break as we have an INSET day on Friday 19 October.


See you at the gate.  ... ...                                                     Kate Luxford
