KS2 Letter for September

As a school, we value family and community. Together, we support each other by giving our time, our kindness, our love and our compassion to those around us.

As a result of this support, everyone is included so that we grow into respectful and resilient members of the global society in which we live.

At Sandal Castle our curriculum is driven by wonder, curiosity and high aspirations to inspire a life- long love of learning.

Our values underpin our vision and as a Voluntary Aided Church of England School, we interpret them through our understanding of important bible stories such as when Jesus fed the five thousand.

To further support the growth and understanding of our values with our children, we represent them through these characters.

They are:

Safe Daley, Lucy Learn, Katie Kind, Harry Helpful and Ruby Respect.


- A Church of England school serving the Community since 1686

On behalf of the children, staff, governors and myself it gives me great pleasure

to welcome you to our School.

As a Church of England school, we value the spiritual as well the educational

development of all our children, whichever faith tradition they come from.

We seek to be inclusive of everyone and to help our children to build

their lives on firm moral foundations of love and service of one another.

If your child is joining us for the first time, we look forward to establishing a happy

and successful partnership with you over the coming years.

If you already have a child here, we hope to strengthen our existing links with you to

enable us to provide the best education possible. Parents are welcomed and valued as

partners in their child’s education, as we believe that our children learn best when

staff and parents work together.
