Our Mission and Values

At Sandilands Primary School we create an environment where everyone in our school community can grow in confidence and develop their full potential. 


  • To nurture and support all abilities in order to achieve the best for every member of the school community. 
  • To support children in becoming resilient and to persevere in order that they achieve their very best. 
  • To enable children to develop a positive sense of self-worth and a deep understanding of the needs of others. 
  • To promote the Sandilands values of care, tolerance and respect for other people in the world 
  • To provide a broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum, which is relevant to children's needs and interests. 


School Values:  * Collaborate * Aspire * PeRsevere * REspect

Our school values were developed through consultation with all stakeholders, from our pupils, families and staff to decide on a key set of values that we want to promote for our pupils and school community. Each year,  children work towards achieving CARE badges.
