 Welcome to Sandown School 

Hello, we are all getting back into the swing of things after the Christmas break. Christmas and New Year festivities seem a long way away.
Exciting news, we have welcomed a new pupil this week which brings our school roll to 391 which is the largest Sandown has been since I became Headteacher. A great start to 2019. We hosted two teachers from Hornbeam on Tuesday who came to see the impact of Spelling Shed. They were amazed how engaged the children were in the programme and also the impact it is already having on spelling standards at Sandown.
The latest ratified minutes from the DEALT steering group is now on the school website so please take a look and continue to ask questions.
The school website is the 'go to' place to find out school information and we try very hard to keep it up to date and easy to navigate. Mrs G, Mrs Tapley and myself are currently working with website designers to update the site and we will re-launch it as soon as possible. The new site will be totally compatible with smart phones which will be a huge improvement.
And finally, at the end of last term I was able to give 112 pupils 100% attendance stickers for Terms 1 & 2. Thank you and really well done - a huge achievement when so many nasty bugs were around just before Christmas.

See you next week!                                                               Kate Luxford
