I would like to personally welcome you to Sunny Bank Primary School. I hope that you find our website easy to use and informative, providing you with an insight into all of the amazing things that happen at our school.
Sunny Bank is a proud part of The Island Learning Trust, alongside Halfway Houses and Minster-in-Sheppey, sharing a passion to create a positive and rewarding journey, setting high standards and insisting on EVERY child, parent, teacher and governor ‘to be the best they can be’. The school has been transformed in the past year, raising aspirations and expectations for our pupils and their families, and with the relentless focus on improving pupil outcomes continues to build for the future.
At the very centre of our values is HEART, because without Heart we would not have Honesty, Effort, Aspiration, Respect or Tolerance, which are the core values that underpin every experience or learning opportunity we provide.
We are an inclusive school and work hard to develop positive relationships – centred around personal development, nurture and pupil well-being - with our children, their families and our wider community – from Nursery all the way through to Year 6 and beyond. As Head of School I am passionate and determined to build a school based on the foundations of success, where our pupils feel safe, happy and secure and can learn and develop skills that enable them to become lifelong learners.
We want the best for each child, because they deserve no less. We believe that children learn best when learning is: exciting, challenging, creative, collaborative, practical, reflective and meaningful. Learning should inspire children to ask questions and to wonder, providing them with memorable experiences.
If you would like to find out more about what Sunny Bank Primary School and Nursery can offer your child, then please contact me for further details or to arrange a visit. We would be delighted to show you around our school.
