Mr D. Mills

We are proud to welcome you to The Bay Church of England Primary School, where learning comes alive and every child is unique. Inspiring learners, within our supportive Christian Ethos, so that each child has the opportunity to excel, is central to our daily work. Set in the heart of Sandown on the Isle of Wight. The Bay Church of England Primary School offers excellent provision within modern purpose built facilities which include an open ICT area, Library and a Specialist Room.

We are proud to share the many individual and collective successes of our children and encourage prospective parents to visit the school and see for themselves the high standards achieved.

Within the school grounds we have outdoor areas which include a Sports Court and an Astro Turf Pitch. Our committed team of staff work in partnership with Parents and Carers from the very start of school life, encouraging and preparing each child for lifelong learning.

“We look forward to meeting you in the future.”

Latest News.


I would like to introduce you to the Cornerstone Federation.

As you are aware, back in June 2016 both The Bay C. E. Primary School and Niton Primary School both formalised their commitment to working together under the umbrella of a Federation. This led to a deeper level of collaboration and enabled both schools to benefit from shared expertise and resources.

The next step in developing a more ‘togetherness’ between the two schools was to think of a Federation name that united us under similar aims and achievements. This is where the exciting and dynamic name Cornerstone Federation came into being, with the motto of ‘Achieving More Together’.

Can I reassure you that this changes nothing of the nature and ethos of either School. Both The Bay and Niton Primary Schools will keep their unique individual identities, as they seek to move forward under the Federation.

Community Kids.

Community Kids, which has been established for about four years, is a group of young people who help out in the local community. We tend  the gardens at the Briars Residential Home, and this year we are growing vegetables for the residents to enjoy. The group also maintains Sandown Railway Station, planting baskets and plants and generally keeping the station tidy.

In January of this year we entered a national competition run by South West Trains and are delighted that one of our Community Kids has won first prize. Bethan Marsh, who is 11 years old, has had her design made into a poster which will now be placed on South West trains.  Her design encourages passengers to keep the trains clean and tidy. The Community Kids were also awarded £100 vouchers to go towards any trips or fund raising events we may hold in the future.  The parents and children were invited to attend an assembly in school to celebrate their achievement.


Parent consultations are taking place on Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th  March, therefore the following after-school clubs have been cancelled: Tuesday 28th – Community Kids with Mrs Taylor

Tuesday 28th – Board Games with Mrs Walsh and Miss Coombes

Wednesday 29th – Film Club with Miss Bright and Miss Ayers

Thursday 30th  – Year 4 Football with Mr Mitchell

Thursday 30th – Girls Football with Mr Stephens

Thursday 30th – Phonics Fun With Mrs Percy and Mrs Birch

Thursday 30th – Film Club with Mrs Elliott and Miss Stay

Sports at The Bay

The Year 4 team did really well in the Indoor Athletics competition last week. They showed great determination and were great representatives of the school, finishing 8th out of 12 overall.

Last week 8 year 5 pupils were lucky enough to be invited to take part in an archery festival. After a quick lesson in how to use the equipment, there were several rounds of fun competitions to score points for the team.

Overall we finished in 3rd. It was great fun and hopefully can be repeated again soon.
