*** Coronavirus - Covid-19 Update ***
Update on school plans for re-opening
Following on from the Government’s announcement, where they confirmed that schools can begin reopening from the 1st June, we can now update you on our planning for a phased and gradual return to school for our pupils.
The safety, health and wellbeing of everyone in the school is, of course our highest priority. To prioritise the safety of our pupils and staff, we are not able to accommodate all the year groups the government has identified immediately. A phased opening will be taken that is subject to a continuous risk assessment, so may change for safety reasons if necessary. The time school starts and ends for each year group will also be different to normal school hours.
Full details of our plans can be found here
In the first instance, Sandown will be able to welcome back our Keyworker and Vulnerable children. This will enable us to better prepare for future wider reopening by making the site as safe as we possibly can – see below for our proposed timetable for a phased return:
We should all continue to follow health guidance:

Welcome to Sandown Primary School Hastings
At our school we aim to develop all children so that they are "the best that we can be" by recognising and building upon their strengths, identifying their needs and ensuring that these are met.
Every child coming into the school brings with them a wealth of knowledge and understanding about the world around them, and together we aim to build on these skills and encourage them to develop a willingness and enthusiasm to discover more. To see more about our School Vision at Sandown please click here.
This term the children are focusing on Quality Education:
At Sandown, we believe that learning should be fun, rewarding and memorable. 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!
We look forward to seeing you soon,
Mr Lindsay, Headteacher, BA QTS
