Bay Primary Children


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.”

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. To view The Cornerstone Federation website, please CLICK HERE.

Latest News

Over the last 4 weeks, the reception children have been spending each Wednesday at the Bay Forest School.  We have been getting to know the plants and wildlife at the site, played in our mud kitchen and used mallets to put out our boundary and hazard flags.

We have also used woodwork skills such as drilling, sawing and splitting to create log dogs, necklaces and mini wooden boats.

Just some of the lovely things the children had to say about it…

– I love everything about it because we get to be outside!
– I just wish I could live here!
– It’s great at Forest School because we are alone and that means we can be free!
– I get really excited each week because we always get to learn something new!

Sustrans and the Bike Doctor visited The Bay.   

Children were invited to bring their bikes into school for a free Bike Doctor session with Wight Mountain and Sustrans. This session gave children the opportunity to have their bikes and scooters checked and minor repairs made if needed to make them safe and roadworthy.
