 Welcome to Sandown School 

This week has been a quieter one than the last two - thank you for all your kind comments regarding the World War 1 activities and please do make a detour at drop off or pick up to view our poppy tile wall.

It has been a busy governor week; they have undertaken a Health and Safety visit to ensure that the school is compliant and will report back to the Governing Body at the next meeting. On Tuesday we had a 'Quad Deep Dive' where the Headteachers from Deal Parochial, Hornbeam and Kingsdown and Ringwould were invited into Sandown, alongside our Chair of Governors, to view an aspect of the school. We chose 'The wellbeing and involvement of our pupils'. They spent the morning observing our sensory circuit group, visiting and observing at Green Zone and talking to Mrs Horrocks, Mrs Buckett and our Pupil Voice leaders with Mrs Porter. The outcome of this morning was incredibly positive; the word 'inspirational' was mentioned several times. As always the pupils spoke confidently to the visitors and enjoyed showing them what they were learning and how proud they are of their school.

We also had the Rotary Club take an assembly on Tuesday. The Rotary Club have very kindly donated a dictionary to every Year 5 pupil to use whilst at Sandown and then to take with them to secondary school. Thank you.

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