Sandringham Visual Arts @our_quilt_2020
Before the Easter break we announced our exciting new project ‘Our Quilt 2020’. We hope as many members of the community will get involved in making their own personal contribution of a stitched square to become part of our school community quilt when we are able to return to school. Students, parents, carers, grandparents, staff, governors….every member of our school community is welcome to participate in this project!
We have created an Instagram account where we will be posting details about sizing and materials, short tutorials about techniques and all things textiles related. As you begin to complete your work we will post it onto the account so we can all celebrate our ideas and achievements – more details to follow. Please click on the link below to see the first tutorial.
So, head on over to Instagram, follow @our_quilt_2020 for inspiration and ideas – see you there!

Sandringham School’s PE ‘2.6 Challenge’
It’s time to get Active as a whole school!
The London Marathon alone, which should have taken place on Sunday 26 April, is the world’s biggest one-day fundraising event, which raised more than £66.4 million for thousands of charities in 2019.
Many of these charities have had to reduce or stop services at a time when vulnerable members of society need them most; thousands of staff have been placed on furlough and many charities will not survive the next few months. We have chosen to put all of the hard work and physical activity that our students and parents are all doing collectively to good use and support the Association of NHS Charities.
The idea is you pick any physical activity that is 2.6 related and get active. It could be running 2.6 miles, rowing 2.6 miles, completing 26 burpees with 26 friends in an online meeting, or even 26 cartwheels around the garden. Will anyone be brave or mad enough to run 26.2 miles around their garden? Whatever you want to do to contribute and help this important cause right now will be fantastic.
In order to track involvement and so we get an idea how everyone is challenging themselves if you could fill in the very short form here https://forms.gle/rJy1wXBjjD9rri4N6

Staff from our amazing Design & Technology Faculty have been working hard over the Easter Holidays making PPE for our local NHS staff, carers and other frontline workers.
Today, (Weds 15th April), alone, they have managed to produce a whopping 220 full face visors and 80 ear savers to be distributed along with the previous hundreds of pieces already delivered to frontline services. This batch will be making their way to local services the next few days. Well done and thank you Team DT. We are all incredibly proud of you. #teamDT #ThankYouNHS
Monday July 6th from 5.45 p.m. to 8.45 p.m.
(Subject to Covid-19 restrictions that may still be in place)
We have left this date in the school diary for now, but are well aware that it may have to be moved or cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. If this is the case, closer to the date, we will update the school website accordingly. We will run with our usual Open Morning sessions in the early part of the Autumn Term and these will be a powerful way of seeing the school in action during a normal day. There will also be a short address from the Headteacher at the end of each tour.
Provisional : The Open Evening is designed for families considering Sandringham School for September 2021 intake and beyond. The Headteacher will give four speeches at 6.00 p.m., 6.45 p.m., 7.30 p.m. and 8.15 p.m. Entrance will be by ticket obtained in advance from the school with some available on the evening. The entire school will be open for viewing and tours will take place as usual. There will be four Open Mornings in the autumn term (dates to be advised) for you to see the school in action. These visits will be able to be booked in advance with the school.
Delighted to help our amazing NHS staff by donating 382 goggles and safety glasses to Watford General this week. Every little bit counts. Keep up the great work everyone.
