Message sent from:

 A very warm welcome to Sandlings   Primary School, my name is Patricia   Toal and I have been fortunate to   have been the headteacher here   since 2011.

 We are very proud of our school and  our welcoming and nurturing   atmosphere in which the children   feel safe, secure, valued and happy.


Currently we have 90 pupils on roll, aged 3-11 years who are organised into 4 classes, and a dedicated team of staff and governors who have high expectations of all our pupils in terms of their work and behaviour.

We are aspirational for all our pupils who receive a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum, which aims to give them a love of learning and prepare them with the skills for the next stage of their education, in a world that is forever changing.

Our open door policy means that parents are always welcomed into school and myself and every teacher is readily available for a quick chat before, or after school.

I hope that our website gives you a flavour of our school ethos and our passion for teaching and learning.

If you would like to look around our school please come and see us- you would be very welcome. Please contact the school office for an appointment.

I look forward to meeting you.

Kind Regards

Patricia Toal
