Dear Parents and Carers

At Sandbrook Primary School we are committed to ensuring every child receives the best possible education which enables them to achieve their potential. Our aim is to provide an education which develops the whole child both academically and socially, nurturing skills which prepare them for lifelong learning.

We firmly believe that a strong partnership between home and school begins before a child even enters the classroom. You will find teachers on the playground and by their classroom doors each morning, as I feel it is vital to have daily opportunities for communication between home and school. 

We would like to work closely with parents and carers, providing information and opportunities for you to engage in school life and maximise the life chances for all your children. 

We are proud of the rich curriculum which enables children to learn from first hand experiences both in the classroom and in the outdoor environment. Our fabulous school environment provides opportunities for the children to explore wildlife, develop their musical talents and enjoy physical activity whilst developing important social skills.

Learning continues at the end of the school day with the range of extra curricular activities which enrich the children’s school experiences. We offer opportunities for the children to develop their football and other sports skills, play a variety of musical instruments or demonstrate their creativity through a range of new clubs and visits.  We are currently exploring ways to extend this provision and your ideas are always welcome.

I hope you find this website useful and that it gives you a feel for the school, the children and the work which goes on at Sandbrook Primary School.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to ask any questions or if you would like to arrange a school visit – we look forward to hearing from you.

Mighty Zulu Nation Theatre Company

Recently, All of our Key Stage 2 classes had the pleasure of watching a showcase compilation play by the Mighty Zulu Nation Theatre Company. In addition to this, children had the opportunity to take part in a general dance workshop and in particular our Year 6 children took part in an additional dance workshop. As you can see from the faces of our children on the pictures, they absolutely loved watching and taking part and are hoping that the Mighty Zulu Nation return to Sandbrook in the not too distant future!


"This vibrant spectacle, showcases a kaleidoscope of dynamic Traditional Zulu Culture. The amazing voices, of the cast, with their brilliant harmony have delighted audiences throughout the world. The powerful traditional splendid dance sequences, accompanied by ‘pulsating’ Zulu drums, guarantees to hold any audience spellbound."
