School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Sandown Bay Academy is larger than the average-size school. It is sponsored by Academies Enterprise Trust (AET).

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 disorders.
