Sandown Bay Academy is larger than the average-size school. It is sponsored by Academies Enterprise
The proportion of students who are disabled or have special educational needs and are supported through
school action plus, or with a statement of special educational needs (as defined by the previous Special Educational Needs Code of Practice), is near the national average. The proportion supported at school action is also average.
The proportion of students known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding) is
similar to the national average. Some students are eligible for the Year 7 catch-up premium.
The academy serves a community with relatively little ethnic or cultural diversity. Nearly all students are of
White British heritage.
A small number of students in Key Stage 4 attend alternative provision for part of their timetable. Nine
students attend WISE workshop, an engagement programme teaching woodwork and mechanics, the majority for half a day each week. One Year 11 student attends full time at HTP Training and is following
a catering course.
The academy meets the government's current floor standard which sets minimum expectations for
attainment and progress.
The academy has a special unit to support the needs of up to 12 students with autistic spectrum
