We love Sandbrook and we love it when our visitors appreciate our school. Below you will find a few of the positive comments we have received.
I was impressed with the wonderfully calm atmosphere throughout the school and the respect shown by all the school community to each other. We saw very high engagement by pupils in all classes and excellent behaviour throughout the school. Every child I talked to was polite, open and welcoming - a wonderful school ethos.
The depth of learning in Key Stage 2 was fantastic to observe...it was great to witness children being truly challenged, and indeed thirsty to challenge themselves. The classrooms we visited were vibrant and full of references / scaffolds to support learning. Every child I spoke with could confidently explain their learning and showed high motivation to achieve well.
Thank you so much for inviting me to your lovely school. I had such a good day and everyone was great.
