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.”


Latest News.

I am sure you are aware that there has been a lot of talk in the weather forecast for possible snow on the Island. 

Should we wake up to snow and the school is unable to open, we will inform the Isle of Wight Council at the earliest possible opportunity and no later than 7.30am. Details of closures will be broadcast by Isle of Wight Radio, the Council website, and the Council’s Facebook and Twitter pages. All of these will have an up-to-date school closure list. You will also receive a text message from school.

If the snow falls during the day, after the start of school and the decision has to be made to close to ensure the safety of children and staff getting home, you will be contacted by text message. If we know you have not received the text, we will telephone.  If for any reason you are not receiving our text messages, please contact the office.

Girls’ Football

On Monday, the girls’ football team played Broadlea in nightmare conditions; the rain was pouring down and the wind was blowing but the girls came out on top winning by a staggering 7-2.

It was a great game to watch with Summer scoring six goals with great passing and running by Phoebe who also scored one. Also Maizie didn’t stop working for the team. Mya made some key passes to set Summer up for some of her goals. The two at back,  Lottie and Grace, well, it’s like they have been playing together for years – two great defenders. Charlotte, in goal, didn’t really have a lot to do apart from one great save.

Well done, girls.

Thank you to everyone who came along and supported the team!
