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.
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,

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

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
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!
We have hosted another successful B&A programme this year. There were 10 children and their parents who participated. Everyone enjoyed all the activities and as always the visit to St John University was the highlight of the programme.
This year they managed to have a picnic in the grounds as well. A big thank you to Tracey for everything she has done for the last five years, we will miss you and wish you success on your journey. Finally thank you to all the parents and children who have taken part in the programme this year.
