 Welcome to Sandown School

The children are settling really well into their new classes and there are a growing number of children at the office door eager to share their fabulous work.

We are hopeful that Mr Thompson's class will be moving back to their rightful classroom next week which will mean After School Club will return to their usual room. The redecoration inside the school building will continue at half term.

Please remember that there is another Multi Academy Trust parent meeting on Tuesday 25 September at 6.30pm - please note change of venue - the meeting is at The Expressive Arts Centre at Deal Parochial School. The Articles of Association are on our school website. These articles are the subject of the meeting.

And finally, coming out with this newsletter is information regarding our Parent Governor vacancy. If you are interested in self nominating or nominating another parent for Sandown's Governing Body please read the information provided. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to come and ask or drop me an email.

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.

Ms Luxford
