It was placed in special measures in June 2019 and joined The Island Learning Trust in February 2020. However, with recent changes to personnel, our children are now benefitting from a strong teaching team with a committed team of professionals; Sunny Bank is now on track to be a ‘Good’ school. 

Our Trust and all its personnel are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children. This post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure Application to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
