Welcome to the websites for St Andrew’s Church of England Voluntary Aided Infant and Junior Schools. The Governors, staff and children are extremely proud of our schools and we hope that you will soon feel part of our Christian family. We work hard to learn together, striving to ensure that all our children flourish within a caring, Christian community. Our Christian vision and values underpin and overarch all our work and support pupils to develop and instil lifelong personal values and positive behaviours for life and learning.
The Junior School is rated ‘OUTSTANDING’ in all areas by OFSTED and the Infant School is rated ‘GOOD’ with ‘OUTSTANDING’ features (for Personal Development and Behaviour and Attitudes). In our most recent SIAMS (Statutory Inspection for Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspections we were rated ‘GOOD’ (Junior School) and ‘OUTSTANDING’ (Infant School). We are incredibly proud of these outcomes as they reflect the hard work and dedication of our whole school community.
Our teaching is based on the knowledge that all children are unique and have differing abilities and educational needs and that all children should have the opportunity to thrive, feel valued and be happy at school. We are highly inclusive schools, ensuring that all children access all opportunities. We set high expectations and continually strive to raise standards by providing stimulating activities and experiences that make learning exciting and enjoyable. We want all of our children to reach their full potential.
We welcome visits to the schools. We have an organised Open Day each year, which is listed in our calendar on the website. If you wish to visit on a different date, please ring the office who will be happy to help you.
