Blog Number One:  Welcome back!  I hope you all had a fantastic summer and are ready for the excitement and challenges of a new year at Sandown. We would like to welcome all our new pupils and parents who have started at Sandown. The Year R pupils have settled very well and are enjoying the challenges given to them by the Early Years Team. We have had quite a few new pupils join in other year groups and they are settling into the school well. We also have several new members of the staff team; Miss Evans, Mr Hawthorne-Nelson and Mr Moore.

As we start a new academic year we will endeavour to keep you up to date with all the events and opportunities that the school is involved in. You can find out what’s going on via our website, newsletter, Facebook and our texting service.

Also, there is always a member of the Senior Leadership Team at the gate in the morning – so if you have a questions please come and have a chat.

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.
