British Values

* You can see how each subject at Sandown Bay Academy promotes British values on the Curriculum tab of our website
Remembrance Day - November 2016 

Students and staff observed a Two Minute Silence on 11th November to remember those in the armed forces who have died in the line of duty. Some of our students who belong to Sandown Army Cadets (including Katie Craven pictured below) took part in a Remembrance Service at Carisbrooke Castle.

Students also made poppies from paper that were displayed outside reception. 

European Referendum - June 2016 

Students in all year groups across the Academy have been voting to leave or remain in the EU as part of a series of assemblies on the EU referendum.

A group of Year 10 Citizenship students led the assemblies. They put forward arguments for and against leaving the EU based around 4 themes they felt students would relate to:

·         Immigration

·         Trade

·         Education

·         Global Defence

At the end of the assembly students were asked to vote Leave or Remain.

Sandown Bay Academy students voted overwhelmingly to stay in the European Union. 

Sharing the importance of British Values

Members of the Academy Council have been out visiting local Primary Schools to share the importance of British Values. The importance of British values was shared with the primary school children through a presentation written by the Academy Council members. After completing a questionnaire, it was clear that the children enjoyed the presentation, but also understood and learnt from the contents as to what British values are. Well done to Rebekah Lewis, Chloe Butchers, Peter Wright, Charlotte Kelly, Klaudia Derewenko and Peter Burns.
