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.”

Farewell Eric!!


To Eric our Lollipop Man in yellow
Always polite, such a cheerful fellow
Arms outstretched, the traffic to stop
Making it wait with his lollipop
Always friendly, to those who’ve crossed
In sun or rain or even frost
Keeping us safe on our way to school,
Stopping the cars, enforcing the rule!
To Eric, who got us safely across,
Huge THANKS, you’re going, and that’s our loss.

Saying sorry

By Madison Eldridge.

Some lovely feedback from the work experience students from Sandown Bay Academy.

We just wanted to send our thanks over to all at the Bay who gave us such a wonderful couple of days when we came to visit last Thursday & Friday. 

We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with year 6 (and with the rest of the school) and the students were an absolute joy.  

Please pass on special thanks to Mrs Wilson and Mrs Spence who were so accommodating in letting us join their classes during our visit.  

Best wishes. 


Following the Year 6 into 7 Open Evening at Sandown Bay Academy on Thursday 13th October, a member of the Leadership team from SBA will be here in school on Friday 21st October from 3.00-4.00pm should you have any questions or would like a chat.

Harvest Festival


A big thank you to all for making the ‘Learning Together’ mornings such a great success.

Some really positive feedback from parents.
 Very helpful to see a normal lesson ‘in swing’.  Great idea
.Really impressed with the attitude of the children.  They are really eager to improve on the previous days timetables score and quickness.   It was good to see how your child sits and concentrates and knows more than their parents.
 I found it held the children’s concentration very well, very engaging and impressed to see the fast pace they can work at.
 I was very impressed with the methods and standard of the lesson.  The children seemed to enjoy Maths which can only be a benefit.
 Was impressed with teacher pupil response and how answers were approached.
 Wonderful to see how the children learn in class.  I was so impressed with the teaching style and how actively involved the children are with learning.
Some fantastic feedback from parents about the Phonics Workshops.
Good to see how the children learn sounds and letters in school through different activities.  
I feel more confident to help my child at home.
 It was great to see how the reception children are getting on. 
I think it is a good idea to bring the children and parents together.  
It will give the parent a better understanding of teaching the children.
We really enjoyed the workshop and feel more confident helping with phonics at home.
Really well run workshop.  The  children all loved the activities.  Good ideas to take home too.
Very good workshop learnt a lot. Thank you.

Some wonderful comments from parents about children’s school reports.
