About Us

A world of opportunities

At Sandy Lane Primary School we work together to inspire and motivate all our children through a diverse range of opportunities. We develop compassionate individuals who are resilient and optimistic with no limit to their success.

Sandy Lane provides opportunities to:

  • Learn together through a wide range of memorable experiences.
  • Achieve the highest standards and do the basics brilliantly.
  • Develop a deep understanding of others through the rich diversity of the school community.
  • Be nurtured within our school family to become socially confident, kind and considerate young people.
  • Embrace new challenges, thinking and reasoning for themselves.
  • Have a love of learning that will last a lifetime.
