Welcome to Sandown Primary School

At Sandown Primary we aim to develop all children so that they achieve the best that they can do. We aim to do this by recognising and building upon their strengths and by identifying their needs and ensuring that these are met.

We are keen to raise standards in all areas and believe that children learn best through direct experience. Our school has a new and exciting curriculum based on this principle, which captures interest, stimulates enthusiasm and provides learning opportunities for children of all abilities. Pupils are encouraged to take increasing responsibility for their learning, which promotes confidence and independence. We have high expectations of our pupils and hope that they will take advantage of the numerous academic and sporting opportunities offered here. We promote the highest standards of behaviour and believe that children should develop strong moral values and respect for others in our community.

If you would like to see the school in action to gauge our energy, enthusiasm and ethos then please do not hesitate to visit us.

School Prospectus


At Sandown Primary School:

Everyone Feels Good About Themselves!

In this school we value all individuals and believe that everyone is unique and worthy of respect. We value the development and contribution of all individuals. The self-esteem and self-belief of individuals underlies all learning. We are calm and measured in our actions and we aim to create an environment that demonstrates mutual trust.

Everyone Wants To Learn!

In this school we understand the importance of engaging children emotionally in their learning. We believe that every individual has a right to challenge and be challenged in order that his or her thinking may grow and develop. We understand not only that learning is messy but that every learner brings a variety of experiences and differences. We encourage and promote understanding through careful probing and by the skilful use of questions. We ensure that demotivation is recognised and addressed so that every individual wants to learn.

Everyone Works Well With Others!

In this school there is an understanding of the needs of others. We value differences and consider alternative perspectives. Cultural, moral, social and intellectual diversity is seen as adding value to school life. Individuals understand others, as well as how to work and learn co-operatively and collaboratively towards common goals. We aim to foster an awareness of citizenship and links with the community.

Everyone Experiences Success!

In this school there is a strong belief that all individuals can learn and gain success. We aim to create a climate of achievement where the learner is motivated to strive to achieve personal excellence in all aspects of life and inspire a joy of learning that will last a lifetime. We believe that recognition and celebration enhances each individual's self-perception and creates a desire to give of their best. Individuals take responsibility for their own learning.

Everyone Knows How To Learn!

In this school individuals are independent learners. They identify the purposes of learning, reflect upon processes of learning, assess progress in their learning and also identify obstacles in their learning together with ways to improve. We believe that learning is learnable. We also recognise that individuals may have different learning styles and that there are a number of intelligences, all of which are of equal value.

Everyone Thinks Of Their Own Ideas!

In this school we believe all individuals have the potential to be creative. We encourage everyone to think freely with confidence, to be curious and to ask questions. Individuality is encouraged and valued. We believe children learn best if their minds are stimulated and they are excited and engaged in their learning. We therefore plan experiences, opportunities and environments to support children's ability to discover, explore and express themselves.
