A message from Mr. Davies, our Headteacher....
Dear Children, Parents & Carers,
Welcome to Sandy Lane Primary School! I hope that these pages give you a feel for the ethos and aims of our warm and friendly school. We are lucky to be a large Primary School, with extensive grounds, offering a range of activities in school and in our community. Within our larger community, we have smaller ‘phases’, enabling children to develop themselves as individuals, in small groups and as part of a larger community. All children are supported by our caring team.
We place an explicit emphasis on developing the whole child as a person and as a learner. Our wonderful staff team and I are committed to ensuring children have a wide array of learning experiences and that we equip your children with the knowledge, skills and values that will enable them to progress in life becoming confident and responsible local, national and global citizens. We aim to do all this in such a way that the children cannot help but smile.
One of my key aims is to foster strong links between school and home – I often talk of our school ‘family’ and positive, strong links between us are essential. Staff are available to talk to on the playground at the end of each day, as am I, and we welcome any comments, thoughts or help you can give.
We are all here to do the absolute best we can for each and every child – and together that’s what we will achieve.
If you have any questions or would like to come and look around our wonderful school, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
Here’s to exciting times ahead.
Please contact Miss Pateman (click here for details), School Secretary, if you wish to arrange to visit us and see our school in action. We would be happy to show you and your child around our positive feeling and purposeful school, with happy and engaged children learning.
We are very proud to be ‘School of the Year’ runner up in 2016.
