Dear Parents and Visitors to our school website,
We are very proud of our church school, where everyone works together to make a real difference to the children and families in our school community. As Head teacher, I feel that St Andrew’s is very special and it is a delight to see our children grow and develop as individuals in a caring and challenging learning environment. We have lots of fun at St Andrew’s, but also recognise the important role we have in establishing attitudes and skills that will take our children into their future life. We hope this website gives you some understanding of the values and aims of our school and will provide you with a range of information about the 'spirit' of St Andrew’s.
Our school has a team of very committed teachers, support staff and governors who are keen to work in partnership with parents to provide our children with a high standard of education within a safe and supportive environment. Our hard work was rewarded during our Ofsted inspection in February 2017, when we were judged ‘Good’ in every category:
‘The leadership of the school are working well to ensure that pupils receive a good education.’
‘Teaching in the school is typically good. It is characterised by effective planning based on a thorough understanding of individual pupils’ abilities and needs.’
‘Pupils are well behaved, polite and friendly. Their personal development is promoted well, not just in lessons but also through a wide range of extra-curricular activities.’
We work constantly to develop and improve the school. We have an open-door policy and after your child has joined us as a pupil, I hope you will feel very free to contact us at any time if you have any concerns regarding your child’s education or happiness at St Andrew’s. Please do not hesitate to share your concerns with us as we are here to help!
To share the ethos and sense of community which exists in our school you really need to visit St Andrew’s, and for those of you who don't know us please be assured that a warm welcome awaits you. We are proud of our school and both children and staff enjoy sharing St Andrew’s with visitors and friends.
Wayne Higgins, Headteacher
