At Sandal Magna Community Academy we believe that our school sits within the heart and the future of the community.

We aim to serve the needs of all the families within the local area, with a commitment to developing the social cohesion of our community and to maximise the life chances of each and every child. We endeavour to work in close partnership with parents for the benefit of our children.

When our children leave the Academy we want them to be happy, enthusiastic, confident, curious, tolerant and most importantly; well prepared for their next stage of learning.

We're A Knockout

When Mrs Sennett and Mr Elliott announced that we'd be celebrating the outcome of our Ofsted visit with We're a Knockout, we crossed our fingers and hoped the weather would be kind. However, today's event and the fantastic sunshine were both far more than we'd dared to dream of.  Excitement was rising with the temperature when giant inflatables appeared on the school field at the beginning of the day and the actual experience exceeded everyone's expectations.
Across school, from Reception to Year 6 and the teachers and support staff, everyone enjoyed battling across the assault course, fumbling for coloured balls in the foam, racing against the clock to form a cuboid and bouncing in unison on the spacehoppers. As the temperatures soared, we rounded off our celebration in style with a delicious ice cream.
All in all, this was a day to make memories; the kind that endure across the years. It was the kind of day that makes a good school like Sandal Magna Community Academy, a great place to learn and work.

Victory for our volleyball team

Seven keen volleyball players went to Kettlethorpe High School on Wednesday evening to participate in the pyramid wide volleyball tournament.  As we made our way there, there was talk that it would be great to come third and not last.  Little did we know the joys that were just around the corner! 
Our first match was against St James’ and though they were a spirited team, we beat them comfortably.  Next we were playing against Hendal Lane.  Looking smart in their kit and strong as a team, they put up a good fight and still we won.  We began to get a bit excited.
The next round gave us chance to regroup and we honed our serving and passing skills on the spare court before taking on Mackie Hill in the fourth round.  They were slick and coordinated but we held serve and beat them by a small margin.  Scarcely daring to believe our good fortune, we faced our final match against Dane Royd.  They were really great sports given that they had been narrowly beaten in their previous heat, but we held our nerve and were rewarded with a win by two points.
With four match wins, we are the volleyball champions.  Just look at the delight on our faces.
Krystian was man of the match due to his sportsmanship in allowing others a game and volunteering to be a substitute when tensions ran high in the last round, but really that honour could have gone to any one of our fabulous players.
Well done Krystian, Patryk, Keera, Harris G, Lemar, Nafeesah and Rehman.  You were fab-u-lous!

Wakefield Football Finals

Back in October, our year 5 and 6 football team won the Kettlethorpe Schools football tournament. As a result of this, we were invited to attend the Wakefield Schools Finals. On Tuesday afternoon, 9 boys, accompanied by Miss Corbett, Miss Grindle and Mrs Pratt, went to Outwood Grange to take part in this event. They were all very excited (and quietly confident!)

In our first match, against The Methodist School, we fought a close battle, but ended up losing 1-0. The boys didn’t let this affect them and went on the play Walton in the second game. This ended in a 0-0 draw. The third match was an exciting local derby against our close neighbours, Sandal Castle. Sandal Magna played fantastically, but unfortunately lost due to a late goal. 1-0.

After a 10 minute rest, it was time to play Horbury St Peters. A great game, which we won 3-1, with some fantastic goals being scored by Lemar and Patryk. We moved straight onto the next match against Gawthorpe, which again was a close match, but we came out on top, thanks to a goal by Harris. 1-0.

The final two games, against Newton Hill and St Paul’s, ended with a loss and a draw.

Then it was time for the final results. Sandal Magna finished 4th. The boys were fantastic representatives for our school and we are all incredibly proud of their behaviour, teamwork and attitude throughout the tournament. Well Done!
